Modulr is the first non-bank or building society to join the Confirmation of Payee service.

Confirmation of Payee allows users to check if the payment details they’ve entered for a person or business match the details held by the recipient’s bank. This provides reassurance that payments are being sent to the right recipient and protects Modulr customers from certain types of payment fraud.

The feature provides an extra layer of defence to protect Modulr’s customers from malicious redirect payment fraud, also known as authorised push payment (APP) fraud. This is the second Modulr product launch to come out of its £10m grant from the Capability and Innovation Fund (CIF) under the RBS Alternative Remedies package. Modulr, an authorised electronic money institution, is the first non-bank or building society to join Confirmation of Payee.

We’re committed to delivering the very latest innovation in payments to our customers, and I’m delighted that we are the first non-bank or building society to offer Confirmation of Payee. Thousands of consumers and businesses fall victim to social engineering scams every year in the UK. Modulr is always looking for ways to help our customers keep their money safe.

We’re pleased to announce the launch of Confirmation of Payee offers greater assurance to businesses and consumers when making payments. This is a crucial step forward in the ongoing battle against fraud and it’s going to help us build a safer payments ecosystem in the UK.

Myles Stephenson, Chief Executive of Modulr
