#SME / Mastercard and Pollinate announce global commercial partnership

The Pollinate platform gives banks a modern toolkit for their SME customers. The platform is a cloud-based data and digital experience layer that can sit on top of any bank’s existing infrastructure (terminal estate, processor, gateways). The platform allows a bank to enter acquiring, or transform their existing business without changing their underlying infrastructure. Banks can offer their merchants digital onboarding, and a portal that acts as a central hub of a merchant’s business. The portal has sales and settlement information and proprietary tools such as digital loyalty programs and accounting integrations.
