Great news! Juno is now live and ready to help you with all your bank transfer needs, saving you time, money, and giving you peace of mind.

Over the last year, the Juno team has been working hard to reinvent bank payments for businesses and individuals. We have created the fastest, simplest, and most secure way to pay and get paid on time, every time. And you can start using it today.

Unlock smart bank transfers with Juno

Whether you run a business as a limited company, sole trader, or contractor or transfer money back and forth with your friends and family, Juno can help you make all this simple for everyone. We are able to do this by connecting to users’ bank accounts securely as an authorised Open Banking third-party provider.

This is how it works:

  1. You create a smart payment request with the amount of money you need to be paid. Once you have created it, simply send it via email, message or even social media DM. You can also show the QR code to the person who needs to pay you.
  2. They open the request and select their bank account. This will redirect them to their banking app, where all the details required to pay will be waiting for them. All they have to do is authorise the transaction.
  3. The money arrives immediately into your bank account. Juno is not a digital wallet and does not hold any of the money at any point.

Juno sent and received requests

What can Juno do for you?

You can use Juno to help you run your business payments efficiently on a daily basis. Here are some examples:

Business

Situation 1: You are a marketing consultant and late payments are an everyday problem. Your latest client has told you that they haven’t had the time to pay that invoice yet. With Juno’s smart payment requests, they have no excuse to delay. All they have to do is approve the transaction, so you are more likely to get paid promptly.

Situation 2: You are a plumber and as it often happens you have to nip out to buy some parts to finish the job at hand. With Juno, you can get this sorted immediately at the store. Just send a payment request with a receipt or image attached to your customers and get paid immediately so you’re never out of pocket when picking up parts.

Another great use of Juno is making sure your friends and family pay you quickly when you are the organiser or the person who ends up upfronting the payment for the trip, theatre tickets, or even the restaurant reservation.

Personal

Situation 1: Instead of wasting time at the table dividing who ate and drank what so you can each pay individually, you can grab the restaurant bill for Friday night dinner and drinks and just go to the next joint. In your own time, you can send the relevant payment requests to your friends so that they pay you securely and efficiently, no matter who they bank with.

Situation 2: Your daughter is short of money for her new house deposit. The estate agent sends you a smart payment request for the remaining £20,000. You select the account you want the payment to come from and click pay. You are certain it’s going to the right bank account and no need to type in and triple-check their account details.

Situation 3: You’re walking through town on the way to work and a charity donation stops you. You don’t have any cash on you, but they ask how much you want to donate and pop up a QR code. You pay with one scan and a click onto your bank account. And by paying through Juno, they save on hefty card transaction fees, so your donation goes further.

Juno can help you in many ways and we hope you discover ways we haven’t even thought of.
