ING Bank and Getronics PinkRoccade to set up European Biller Service Provider

Today ING Bank and Pink Roccade Getronics announced that they would set up a European Biller Service Provider to allow easier digital bill payment to the consumer. Both organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding to this end.

The idea is that digital bills are sent to the consumer (rather than paper bills, which cost a lot) and presented in the e-banking environment. At present Rabobank is still the only Dutch bank with such a solution (offered in cooperation with CENDRIS/Privver; the former state-owned postal services company). But now it appears we will have more choice in the market.
