Technical aggregator, solution providers and consultants

Vendors of aggregation services are able to prove their technical ability to interact with the Faster Payments Central Infrastructure, thanks to a cloud-hosted test environment, supplied by Ascert. This route has a number of benefits:

  • Participants may benefit from cheaper connectivity
  • Participants can be reassured of an aggregator’s capability
  • Through accreditation, a vendor is able to market its ability to connect
  • The costly use of the central test environment can be minimised.

Anyone wishing to achieve Faster Payment System accreditation should first contact us. We will then confirm whether prospective vendors have an non disclosure agreement in place and, following this, can then make the relevant documentation available.

Once this step is completed, the organisation should follow the process detailed in the Ascert Engagement Guide, and associated documentation referenced within.

Pay.UK Fee Structure – Technical Accreditation

A fee of £10,000 is payable to Pay.UK upon successful conclusion of the technical accreditation and prior to issuance of the Technical Accreditation Certificate. No additional fee is payable for any subsequent test(s) undertaken against the Vendor/Aggregator’s same software version.
