agent banking overview
Agent Banking Overview

What is agent banking?

In the context of the card business, Agent Banks typically license the credit card programs and technology of other banks (Sponsor Banks).

Why agent banking?

This structure enables the Agent Bank to offer the technology and product of the Sponsor Bank to its customers without a lengthy implementation process and without large up-front fees.

Who are typical Agent Banks?

Typical Agent Banks are regional banks with strong, local treasury relationships and a need for a commercial card solution, but larger national banks and non-traditional banks are also eligible for the program.

A typical Kontrol agent banking candidate has fielded questions from its larger clients around card-based AP solutions or may have seen competition encroach on its treasury relationships because of a lack of a viable AP product.

How does agent banking work?

Agent Banks contract with Kontrol and one of Kontrol’s Sponsor Bank partners to license Kontrol’s best-in-class card-based AP solution.

Volume from the Agent Bank flows through Sponsor Bank’s BIN via the Sponsor Bank’s contract with the core processor.

ERP Integration – No change to existing accounts payable processes. A file can be produced using the alternative payment functionality of client’s existing ERP systems, so they can process card payments in the same way that they are processing check or ACH files today.

Push Payment – Suppliers can receive the straight through processing of an electronic Visa or MC payment without any manual intervention to receive the payment or the data. This means auto reconciliation for your clients and a large spend program, which yields great revenue.

Pull Payment – 95% of card-based AP spend runs through this method. The supplier receives notification of payment from the client and processes their payment through an existing payment terminal.

SUGA (Single Use Ghost Account) – This special card type allows for suppliers to accept payments, but they are not set-up with a recurring 16 digit number. Many vendors are reluctant to accept payment technology as they have system restraints that will not allow them to store a card number on file – resulting in lower vendor acceptance. SUGA allows a supplier to receive notification of payment from a client and then prompts them to log into a vendor portal to receive a single use card number to satisfy payment. Once settled, the card number is purged from the system, never to be used again.

Single File Solution – A single file can be produced for a client’s entire payment file. Payments can then be made via Card, ACH, and check.
