JJ Foodservice offers open banking for online and in-branch payments

JJ Foodservice is now offering open banking for both online and in-branch payments.

After successfully launching the Pay by Bank open banking payment method for online transactions in 2022 to address rising credit card fees, the company has now expanded the option to counter payments.

The in-branch Pay by Bank option debuted at JJ Foodservice’s new Wimbledon branch and was recently introduced at the Enfield headquarters. Plans are underway to extend the service to all 10 remaining branches. More than 55% of JJ Foodservice customers now Pay by Bank.

The transition to open banking, via Trustly, has also resulted in significant annual savings for the wholesaler.

Mick Dudley, chief technology officer, said: “We’re all about making things easy and affordable for our customers. Pay by Bank offers a cost-effective way to pay, which allows us to redirect savings back to them so they can concentrate on running their businesses.”

Jussi Lindberg, chief revenue officer at Trustly, added: “Open banking payments are quickly becoming the preferred payment method, and we’re excited to enhance the checkout experience for JJ Foodservice customers. They can now improve conversion rates, make huge savings and deliver top-quality service.”
