Yapily Bulk Payments

Instruct multiple payments in a single transaction.

The Bulk Payments product is available as a Beta version.


Yapily Bulk Payments enables you to initiate direct account-to-account bulk payments across the UK through a single API integration.

A bulk payment is a group of payments to be paid to multiple recipients in a single transaction. For a bulk payment the payment must be from the same bank account, on the same date, with the same currency and using the same payment scheme.

Note: Yapily does not support batch payments.


Bulk payments are currently supported by select banks in the UK for business and corporate integrations.

End user journey

The bulk payments experience can be embedded into any application. You build and self-host the user facing screens, giving you full ownership and control over the experience in your application, with the Yapily Bulk Payments API powering the payments behind the scenes.

Note: We recommend you follow our PIS UX guidelines for examples of best practices when building the user facing screens.

Note: Banks use different methods to authenticate and collect consent from users. Yapily supports all user authorisation flows and you may need to implement multiple user authorisation flows depending on which banks you want to integrate with.
