What is a Technical Service Provider (TSP)?

A technical service provider (TSP) is a business that obtains and processes payment account information to support an authorised or registered payment service provider. It does not provide the information to the user itself.<br/><br/>

There is no direct relationship between the TSP and the consumer. If the TSP accesses the consumer's account to retrieve data, but does not provide Account Information Services (<a href="/glossarycollection/account-information-service" style="color:#48277C;" target="_blank" title="Account Information Service"><u>AIS</u></a>) to that consumer, they don't need to be authorised or registered by the Financial Conduct Authority (<a href="/glossarycollection/financial-conduct-authority" style="color:#48277C;" target="_blank" title="Financial Conduct Authority"><u>FCA</u></a>).
