How Owlin helps PSPs monitor merchants

Payment Service Providers (PSPs) are regulated entities; therefore, they must comply with the rules set out by regulators. This means they need to conduct comprehensive due diligence to mitigate the risk of financial fraud and must (periodically) review or continuously monitor merchants after the initial onboarding process.

In this blog, we share how our Owlin for KYC offering is the perfect tool for Payment Service providers to monitor their merchant portfolio to comply with regulators while mitigating the risk they run into by underwriting these merchants.

Owlin for KYC allows you to monitor merchants based on personalized queries

Manual checks  against individual sanctions & PEP lists or using Google for adverse media is time-consuming and can be prone to errors. Also, manually checking leaves PSPs without an audit trail, making it difficult to evidence due diligence actions to a regulator. With Owlin for KYC,  merchants are continuously monitored for risk signals based on personalized queries you and your team created in the onboarding process. Moreover, you will receive scheduled and instant risk alerts based on the complete Owlin database, including:

  • Adverse Media Data
  • Chamber of Commerce Data 
  • Sanctions Data
  • Political Exposed Persons (PEP) Data
  • State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Data
  • Black- and Warning lists
  • PDF documents
  • Alternative data (e.g. Consumer Reviews)
