Start path case study Bank launches electronic payments for its small business customers through Start Path

An acquiring bank wanted to support micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that were struggling to accept electronic payments. Mastercard used its own Start Path network and program to identify potential solutions and startup partners to tackle this challenge for small businesses. A new small business onboarding solution was created, built in partnership with Signzy, a Start Path company. The sophisticated yet easy-to-use solution made it possible for small businesses to quickly integrate with an acquirer’s existing electronic payment operations.
