Payments Introduction

The Mambu Payment Gateway (MPG) is an optional component that facilitates one-time and recurring transactions using the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) scheme.

The payments solution has its own user interface for configuration, managing users, and auditing transactions, and its own suite of APIs for making, receiving, rejecting, and refunding standards-based payments. For more information, see our Payments API Reference.

The MPG is tightly connected to Mambu's core banking features. Payments are routed to the correct Mambu accounts, payer and payee details are automatically inserted into SEPA messages when possible, and general ledger accounts are kept up to date both for payments and, if using anti-money laundering (AML), for movements of funds into suspense accounts.

The core functionality of the MPG can be extended to support additional AML and suspense account flows, such as using a pre-built Mambu Connector running on the Mambu Process Orchestrator and a supported partner such as ComplyAdvantage.

Using the MPG, customers can quickly gain access to the entire market of more than 27 countries in the Eurozone.
