PayOps Innovator Infinicept Unveils New Embedded Finance Solution, Infiniport – Finovate

  • Denver, Colorado-based PayOps innovator Infinicept unveiled its open payment operations solution, Infiniport.
  • The new offering will support orchestration between multiple processing platforms, enabling businesses to “bring their own processor” (BYOP) to their payments operations.
  • Infinicept secured $23 million in new funding this spring in a round co-led by SVB Financial Group and Piper Sandler Merchant Banking.

PayOps innovator company Infinicept launched its new open payment operations capability, Infiniport. The new offering gives customers the ability to interface with the processor or alternative payment rail of their choice, enabling companies using embedded payments to “bring their own processor” (BYOP) to their payments and business operations.

Infiniport will help support orchestration between processing platforms, which is essential for businesses that rely upon more than one payment processing relationship. The new offering from Infinicept means that companies will no longer be forced to choose between the cost and inflexibility of having a sole provider on the one hand, and building their own embedded payments platform on the other. Instead, Infiniport provides a universal platform giving firms the ability to work with a variety of payment processors, gateways, terminal providers, token solutions, and more.

“Infiniport is part of our vision to help the payment ecosystem avoid lock in and choose the right combination of solutions which best support their business needs,” Infinicept co-founder and co-CEO Deana Rich explained. “Most off-the-shelf payments solutions come with trade-offs, but Infinicept is focused on allowing customers to keep their payments revenue, ownership of their data, and control over their payments product and ultimately the customer experience.”

Among Infiniport’s features are compatibility with any gateway, terminal, orchestration solution, across any processor; standardized fee management and settlement operations across multiple processor relationships; and a one-to-many capability to operate and manage payments with any processor. The offering also enables companies to mix and match payment types, processors, and payout vendors.

Infinicept’s new product announcement comes as the company acknowledges a 1,400% increase in payment volume since 2020. A major player in the embedded finance market, more than 300 software companies are served either directly by Infinicept or through its banking and payments customers. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado and founded in 2011, Infinicept secured $23 million in new funding in May. The investment was led by SVB Financial Group and Piper Sandler Merchant Banking and featured participation from existing investor MissionOG and others. The company said that it will use the capital to further develop its PayOps technology, pursue market expansion opportunities, and invest in ways to continue supporting embedded finance.
