How they describe themselves: Fidel makes it easy, quick, and affordable for developers to access real-time card payment data. Through a single API, developers can securely access data from the three major card networks and build their applications on top of the powerful payments infrastructure – supercharging innovation and driving value back to consumers. Fidel works with global businesses including Klarna, Avios and Royal Bank of Canada, and has offices in London, Lisbon and North America. Backed by Nyca Partners and QED Investors, Fidel recently raised a Series A round of $18m.
How they describe their product/innovation: Fidel’s card-linking API gives developers easy access to real-time payment data from Visa, Amex and MasterCard through a single integration point.
Customers securely connect their payment card to financial products and services. Fidel surfaces granular transaction data (including merchant name and geolocation, payment method and status, transaction time and amount) in real-time.
Fidel’s data ‘plumbing’ is helping drive FinTech innovation, with use cases including loyalty, POS lending, O2O attribution, spend management and digital receipts.
