    Ensure your customers can pay you easily in an efficient way that suits your business

    Simple and efficient payments

    Can Payit remove the headaches from your payment processes?

    • Instant settlement – payments usually cleared immediately (but, certainly within 2 hours).

    • Same day refunds.

    • Recurring payments.

    • Ease your data pressures – reduced customer data handling and do not need to collect or store your customer payment details.

    • The security and trust you’d expect from NatWest – help protect your customers against fraud by using their preferred security – password, fingerprint or facial recognition.

    The payment journey

    Put customer experience at the heart of your payment processes.

    • One-off and reusable requests – send secure requests via email, letter, WhatsApp or SMS.

    • Own the look and feel – ensure the payment experience is tied to your brand.

    • Fully integrate Payit – embed effortless payments into your website or app.

    • Flexible tech – available as downloadable plugin on Adobe Commerce and WooCommerce.


    You will need to sign up to Payit terms and conditions and hold an account with us. Fees are based on the volume and average value of
    e-commerce transactions. Speak to a NatWest Relationship Manager (where relevant) for further information, or request a call back.

    How does Payit work?

    Payit utilises secure Open Banking APIs to facilitate payments without the exchange of account details. This is achieved through a payment initiation call to the customer’s bank via Open Banking APIs. The customer authorises a payment using their bank’s online or mobile banking journey and funds are sent as a Faster Payment.

    What technical resource is required to integrate?

    The API technical integration is relatively straightforward, and we have a readily accessible sandbox which you can use to safely develop and test in. Please see our developer zone for technical specs.

    If you are using e-Commerce sites such as Adobe Commerce and WooCommerce then downloadable plugins are available, with more to come in 2023.

    How much does it cost?

    Our charging structure is based on a fixed rate per transaction, with discounts applied for large volumes. Please complete the form with your business details and we’ll happily contact you with details of pricing.
