Payengine's Universal Onboarding Form: Technical Documentation


In today's rapidly evolving fintech landscape, Vertical Software as a Service (VSaaS) companies face a myriad of challenges when it comes to onboarding clients. Traditional methods often involve cumbersome processes, loss of personally identifiable information (PII), and limited flexibility in terms of integration options. These challenges not only hinder the efficiency of onboarding but also pose potential risks in terms of data security and compliance. Enter Payengine's Universal Onboarding Form—a revolutionary solution designed to address these challenges head-on and streamline the onboarding process for VSaaS companies.

The Current State: Challenges Faced by VSaaS Companies

  1. Loss of PII Data: When VSaaS companies utilize financial institutions' onboarding forms directly, there's a significant risk of losing PII data. This not only poses a security threat but also limits the company's ability to leverage this data for further business operations.

  2. Limited Integration Options: Traditional onboarding forms offer limited customization and integration options, making it challenging for VSaaS companies to tailor the onboarding experience to their specific needs.

  3. Manual Compliance Checks: Ensuring compliance with regulations such as Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Business (KYB) often requires manual checks, which are time-consuming and prone to errors.

Benefits of Using Payengine's Universal Onboarding Form

1. Retention of PII Data

With Payengine's solution, VSaaS companies can retain all the PII data that's typically lost when using traditional onboarding forms. This not only enhances data security but also provides companies with valuable insights that can be used for further business operations.

2. Multi-Institution Submission

Payengine's form allows companies to submit data to multiple institutions with a single click. This eliminates the need for repetitive data entry and streamlines the onboarding process.

3. Smart Multi-Step Automation

Our system is equipped with intelligent automation logic. For instance, it can first onboard a client to the processor. Once that step is completed, the system can automatically onboard the client to a gateway provider of choice, ensuring a seamless transition between different stages of the onboarding process.

4. Integration with Payengine Gateway Services

When used in conjunction with Payengine Gateway services, companies can leverage auto-calculated fields, such as an entity's processing volume. This reduces manual calculations and potential errors.

5. Automated Compliance Checks

Payengine partners with top-tier providers to conduct automated compliance checks, including KYC/KYB, credit history, domain verification, and more. This ensures that all onboarding processes adhere to regulatory standards while also speeding up the verification process.

Technical Integration Options

Companies can integrate Payengine's onboarding form as a white-label standalone portal or link. This provides a branded onboarding experience without the complexities of building a form from scratch.

2. Customizable Embedded Widget

For those looking for a more integrated experience, Payengine offers a fully customizable embedded widget. This allows companies to embed the onboarding form directly into their platform, offering users a seamless onboarding journey.

3. Raw API Integration

For businesses with specific technical requirements, Payengine provides the option to integrate directly using raw API. This offers maximum flexibility and allows companies to tailor the onboarding process to their exact needs.
