October

Crowdlending

Context & needs

Originally created in France under the name Lendix, October is an online loan platform targeting SMEs that has quickly made a name for itself as a reference in the realm of peer-to-peer financing. Seeing the increasing success of their solution, October sought to rapidly expand in Europe, beginning with Spain and Italy. However, this mission proved complicated and fussy with their previous Payment Services Provider (PSP). October turned to Lemon Way, with whom they were familiar via Finsquare, a crowdfunding loan site partner of Lemon Way’s that October acquired in 2016.

‘We met with a number of PSPs and Lemon Way proved the best equipped to support us, not only internationally but also in our overall project, thanks to their in-depth knowledge of our ecosystem,’ explained Matthieu de Fréminville, Project Manager at October.

quote We are delighted to have elected Lemon Way as our new payment institution partner for October. The structure and experience of Lemon Way are best suited to support our growth in France as well as our expansion in Europe.

Solution

Lemon Way oversaw the migration and the deployment of October’s platform in Spain at the end of 2016, then in Italy in 2017, followed by the Netherlands in 2018. October uses Lemon Way’s technology for management and real-time tracking of payment flows between lenders and borrowers, both at the time of investment and repayment. Lemon Way also assists October with identifying users with respect to EU regulations: KYC, combating fraud and money laundering, etc.

‘As a Crowdfunding Financial Intermediary (CFI), we are subject to the same regulatory requirements and obligations regarding vigilance and transparency as Lemon Way. This way, we have two levels of controls, and we have near-daily exchanges with the Lemon Way teams on everything from shared practices to problems encountered and solutions found. We’re moving forward together, which is very valuable!’ concludes Matthieu de Fréminville.
