OKQ8 Bank Signs 3-Year Agreement with Sileon to Implement Flexible BNPL Solution on Their Cards

OKQ8 Bank has signed a 3-year agreement with Sileon to launch a flexible Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) solution on their cards. Through this strategic partnership, OKQ8 Bank becomes the first bank i the Nordics to offer flexible BNPL from Sileon for their card customers.

“As the first bank in the Nordics to introduce BNPL on cards via Sileon’s platform, we are taking an important step forward. Flexible BNPL for cards is the future and a necessary step for us to stay strong in the market. With this initiative, we will offer our card customers a whole new level of payment flexibility,” says Johan Emerius, Chief Commercial Officer at OKQ8 Bank.

Sileon’s BNPL functionality will enable OKQ8 Bank’s customers to convert already completed purchases into instalments, regardless of whether the purchase is made at OKQ8 or elsewhere.

“Our open partner approach, means Visa members can access best-in-class innovation like BNPL capabilities from Sileon. We believe that by adding BNPL on their cards, OKQ8 gains a competitive advantage on the Nordic market” says Philip Konopik, Visa Regional Managing Director for the Nordics and Baltics.

The solution will initially be available to OKQ8 Bank’s B2C credit card customers in Sweden before expanding to other customer segments in Sweden and Denmark.

“We are extremely proud that OKQ8 Bank has chosen Sileon as their strategic partner to launch BNPL on their issued cards. Additional credit options on existing cards are now also coming to the Nordics, and I am convinced that this will give OKQ8 a valuable competitive edge. With Sileon’s technology, OKQ8 can now become an industry leader in card offerings and customer loyalty,” says Kent Hansson, CEO at Sileon.
