Frankfurt & Amsterdam – May 19, 2021 – Deutsche Bank andSilverflow have announced a global partnership to support the bank’s payments strategy. The partnership will include two new payment services, which are expected to launch in Autumn 2021. 

Kilian Thalhammer, Head of Merchant Solutions at Deutsche Bank’s Corporate Bank, said, “Deutsche Bank is creating a new digital payment ecosystem, working with best-in-breed tech players like Silverflow. With Silverflow’s cloud-native payment technology, we can offer our customers high-end, best-in-class services that set new standards for bank-supported acquiring services and digital payments.”

Deutsche Bank will enable PSPs across Europe and the US in the first step to accept debit and credit card payments through Silverflow’s cloud-based card acquiring service. 

Silverflow will also provide innovative new solutions for Deutsche Bank corporate banking customers. Initially launching in Germany, Silverflow’s will provide access to its machine-learning powered merchant chargeback API to manage disputed payments from card issuers on behalf of a cardholder.

Silverflow enables customers and partners to setup, scale and automate manual tasks such as managing chargebacks, alleviating headaches and supporting growth. Signing Deutsche Bank as our global partner is a significant achievement for Silverflow that shows the strength of our technology and team, bringing best-in-class card payments processing to banking customers.”
