Supports a centralised payment and collection factory
Corporate eGateway is Nordea’s file-based, mass payment service with one point of entry for bulk payments and collections in the Nordic countries, Germany, Russia, UK, Canada and the US.
The service provides a uniform file interface that covers all relevant types of domestic and cross-border payments, including direct debits in the Nordic area. In Sweden, the service makes it possible to handle both PlusGiro and Bankgiro payments in one file.
Centralised and flexible payment processing
Centralisation of the payment infrastructure limits the maintenance of system interface to one-point-of entry and one format. The need to adapt to local changes is reduced, and external and internal changes of the IT infrastructure can be made without interfering with one another.
It is possible to mix payment instructions to all countries in the same file. Both outgoing and incoming payments are handled in a way that facilitates straight-through-processing and automatic reconciliation for both the payer and the payee.

Definition of business and technical vocabulary concerning Corporate eGateway.
Most customers use an EDI server or similar application for file conversion, security and communication since those routines are poorly supported by the ledger system itself. The EDI server communicates with the ledgers in the ledger system's internal file format and with Nordea's Message centre in XML ISO20022 format.
An EDI server has a number of built-in functionalities, but mainly it provides a company with a stand-alone EDI infrastructure. We strongly recommend customers to use an EDI server instead of implementing EDI solutions directly in the ledger system.

It is important to have full understanding of what and how Nordea's Message Centre performs validation of all messages.
For detailed information about the message flow process in Corporate eGateway, see below.
Participants must make sure that payment orders are valid instructions to Nordea in order to prevent fraud. It must be ensured that an authorised party gives instructions in such a way that it cannot subsequently be denied that the instructions were sent. Moreover, it must be ensured that the instructions cannot be changed or manipulated by anybody during transmission. To ensure that, transactions should be subject to integrity, origin authentication and non-repudiation of origin techniques.
Use of Security
Corporate eGateway makes it possible for you to send or receive files which are fully encrypted, eg securing confidentiality of all transmitted interchanges. For this, Corporate eGateway uses worldwide standards such as the PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) security method.
We also offer transmission via SWIFTNet FileAct applying the security provided by SWIFTNet.
