Fintech gaining favour in B2B payments, Bottomline survey finds

Friday 24 May 2019 | 10:44 AM CET

A survey conducted for US-based payment automation provider Bottomline Technologies found a rise in banks and fintech partnering for B2B payments processing.

According to the 2019 B2B Payments and Working Capital Management Strategies Survey, 76% of banks are either looking to leverage fintech solutions as much as possible for payment-related services and solutions, or are doing so to deliver select niche capabilities to specific customer segments. In addition, 28% of corporations surveyed indicate that they use a non-bank provider for payments, and 32% say they plan to expand their use of fintech payment solutions within the next three years.

Additional findings from the survey are that nearly half of corporates are using or interested in using new payment services with the top focus being real-time payments (55%), followed by same-day automated clearing house (44%) and blockchain-based networks (35%).

According to the survey, there is variation in which aspect of B2B payments businesses focus on depending on their size. Small companies are twice as likely to focus on accounts receivable initiatives compared to their larger peers, which are more likely to focus on payables.The survey also found that faster and emerging payments are gaining traction, as nearly half of corporates are using or interested in using new payment services. Among these new payment services, the top focus is real-time payments (55%), followed by same-day automated clearing house (44%) and block chain based networks (35%).

The survey, the third annual report from Bottomline, polled more than 300 financial professionals from companies of all sizes and industries in North America and Europe.
