PSD2 came into force in January 2018. Whilst the primary purpose is to increase efficiency in the payments industry, by promoting greater transparency for international payments and eradicating hidden fees, PSD2 has the ability to transform how consumers spend their money in future. PSD2 encourages competition in the financial services sector, by allowing greater participation in certain areas by non-banks, such as fintech companies, for the first time. As well as creating further opportunities for existing third party providers, PSD2 paves the way for the creation of many more. 

Open Banking and PSD2 are closely related but separate regulatory requirements in the payments industry. They have a number of shared objectives and many common features, but also some significant differences. Both initiatives seek to increase competition and encourage innovation in order to make payments easier and more secure, while ensuring an enhanced customer experience. Both introduce a number of important new regulated roles to be performed by service providers. These new functional roles bring with them some acronyms which can serve to confuse people unfamiliar with the subject. The overarching new regulatory status is a Third Party Provider (TPP). Banks, Fintech firms or even regular corporates, such as large retailers or online merchants, can become TPPs.
