Leading payment experts make post-Brexit preparations for European clients

London, 12 September 2019PrePay Solutions (PPS), subsidiary of Edenred, the global leader in payment solutions for the working world, has been granted an E-Money Licence from the National Bank of Belgium (NBB) and has opened an office in Brussels.

UK-based PPS is the leading digital banking and payment services provider in Europe. It serves over 200 clients across 30 countries around the world, processing in excess of 1.6 billion transactions worth  $35 billion in 2018. The licence will enable the company to continue powering fintech companies residing in the EU regardless of the outcome of the UK Brexit negotiations

With the new licence under its belt, PPS has opened its “PPS EU” base, located in  Brussels, which is supporting PPS’ E-Money, Payment and Mastercard issuing services in the EEA.

Ray Brash, CEO, PrePay Solutions, said: “Even before the UK referendum vote in 2016 it was clear that being part of the European payments space was crucial for PPS and our clients. A large part of our business is in the EU and this market has massive opportunities and digital payments will continue to grow for many years. Our decision to establish an office in Brussels and obtain our issuing licence was a natural extension of this strategy. It’s often said that certainty is critical for business and PPS can now give certainty to its clients. Of course we welcome prospective customers looking for issuing and processing services within the EEA zone and I encourage those with concerns around Brexit to contact us.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
