Salt Edge outnumbers other data aggregators in regards to banks connected across the world. While continuously scaling up the number of connections, it is essential for the company to guarantee that the institutions we serve deliver an experience that matches or betters their end-customers’ expectations.
Bank Connect page is the Salt Edge widget integrated by a payment service provider – be it a financial application, bank, lender, big merchant, or eWallet – to allow end-customers to select and securely connect their payment accounts for account information and payment initiation purposes. To support and achieve the goal of creating customer trust, two key pillars were kept in mind when redesigning the bank connection user flow:
– ensuring customers’ informed decision-making based on accurate messages;
– simple and easy navigation.
As it was mentioned in a McKinsey article, “There is a fine line to walk: educating and empowering consumers without confusing, scaring, or boring them.”
Our UI/UX team has employed a deeply customer-centric approach when making product design decisions. They have followed the recommendations issued by Open Banking Customer Experience Guidelines and have introduced a set of useful elements in the customer journey:
Besides optimizing the user journey, we have also implemented technical improvements. Updated Bank Connect page better handles the PSD2/Open Banking redirect flows for AISP and PISP bank channels to support native browsers and mobile apps. Also, the improved UI better supports custom templates and is responsive to various screen sizes (smartphones, tablets, etc.).
Open banking can offer an organic and thorough experience only if it wins the trust of end-consumers to open up access to their financial data. Creating a secure, user-friendly, and transparent environment where consumers feel in control of their actions would empower them to use with confidence the new open banking services.
