Addressing Fintech Disruptions from the Silicon Valley Bank Closure

Carla McMorris

In light of the recent Silicon Valley Bank closure, Synapse acknowledges that numerous fintechs have encountered service disruptions. To address this issue and reinstate vital money transfer services, we have launched the Synapse FastTrack Program, specifically designed for fintechs affected by the Silicon Valley Bank closure to swiftly restore payment processing services. Our primary objective is to help fintechs impacted by the Silicon Valley Bank closure and similar banking interruptions become fully operational in just a matter of days.

A Simplified Payment Processing Solution

This unique program caters to fintechs with straightforward payment processing applications, eliminating the need to open deposit or credit accounts for end-users. In essence, funds are seamlessly transferred from your account to and from the user's external bank accounts.

Payment Channels Offered by the Synapse FastTrack Program

The Synapse FastTrack Program, developed as a response to the Silicon Valley Bank closure, empowers fintechs to transact via the following payment channels:

  • ACH (same day, next day)
  • FedWires
  • SWIFT Wires
  • RDC
  • RPPS
  • Check Issuance
  • Acquiring (Push and Pull)*
  • Virtual Card Issuance (for disbursements)

*Please note: If an MID setup via card networks is necessary, acquiring flows might experience delays until completion (typically 60-90 days).

Complex Use Cases and Limitations

For more intricate use cases involving account opening, lending, or card issuance, please contact us through the chat feature on our website.

Please note that at this time, cryptocurrency and stablecoin use cases are not eligible for the Synapse FastTrack Program.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
