Business value

With this feature, Continia will support smaller businesses in Norway who enjoy the real-time advantages of direct communication with Payment Management, but who do not want to implement the use of e-IDs. This feature enables customers who use Payment Management Direct Communication in Norway to comply with the new legislation without additional costs.

Feature details

The Norwegian Anti-Money Laundry (AML) act demands more control of who sends payment files to a bank via Web- or SFTP services. To use direct communication with a Norwegian bank, it is required that the social security number of the person who sends payment files to the bank, is included in the file. Payment Management Direct Communication will support this requirement for all banks represented in Norway. However, as this is the lowest security level allowed in Norway when using direct communication, users will still have to approve the payment in the bank's portal. For extended security, without the need for approval in the bank's portal, you must use the new Payment Approval Management feature with strong authentication through e-IDs. This will also be included in Continia's feature releases in 2022.
