Bonita Springs, FL. July 6, 2022: Financial technology firm Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI), a division of Edenred, has entered into a definitive Banking Identification Number (BIN) sponsorship agreement with The Bancorp Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBBK). This sponsorship from The Bancorp, through its Fintech Solutions business, will facilitate the next level of CSI’s integrated payments processing and dual card issuing capabilities, accelerating growth of CSI’s leading integrated B2B payment programs and expanding the CSI payment network.
As an extension to its existing relationship with Edenred, this partnership combines more than 15 years of The Bancorp Fintech Solutions’ BIN sponsorship experience with CSI’s market-leading accounts payable (AP) automation platform. Fueled by exponential payments volume growth through accelerated market adoption, robust B2B payments API connectivity, and a market shift to embedded payments solutions, CSI focuses on enhanced customer experience for securely making full AP payments, leveraging all payment methods to meet market demand, and completely optimizing buyer and supplier preference.
“We are extremely pleased to be adding this strategic partnership with The Bancorp to our virtual card and payments issuing program,” said David Disque, President and CEO of CSI. “When we went to the market for this solution, it was clear that few providers can deliver the required connectivity and service volume requirements for our needs. As one of the most experienced innovators and market leaders for these programs, The Bancorp emerged as a clear choice, and we look forward to working with them to enhance our client offering while taking our business to the next level.”
“The Bancorp Fintech Solutions team is humbled to have been chosen by CSI as its primary sponsor bank and look forward to supporting the next phase of growth and innovation for CSI,” said Ryan Harris, EVP and Head of Fintech Solutions at The Bancorp. “At The Bancorp, we seek to do more than just enable our clients’ payments innovation. Our goal is to be an essential partner to fintech organizations that have a future-focused approach to technology and services. CSI’s long-standing position as an innovator and market leader in B2B payments teams well with The Bancorp’s depth and experience in providing back-end banking solutions.”
