Real-time payments

Bottomline Real-Time Payments Express

More than 60 countries are already live with real-time payment schemes or due to launch imminently. With over half a million transactions predicted and a growth rate of 40% annually between 2020 and 2024, the speed and agility that Real-Time payments offers is universally recognised as providing a genuine alternative to traditional digital payments such as ACH, RTGS or cards. 

However, the key to Real-Time payments is the interoperability of each scheme so that true global real-time transactions can be a reality. At present, schemes do not provide universal connectivity and so it isn’t possible to send funds globally. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that banks and financial institutions plan to connect to multiple schemes and central infrastructures.

Real-time payments: the need for speed

Introduced in response to the global financial crisis in 2008, the New Access Model was designed to remove barriers and create a level playing field for smaller/challenger financial institutions and PSP’s to connect to Faster Payments.

In this episode of the Payments Podcast, we’re talking to Julian Sawyer, former Chief Operating Officer at Starling Bank and Ed Adshead-Grant, General Manager for Payments at Bottomline about how and why the market and access model for real-time payments has evolved over the last 10 years.

Money transferred through the Faster Payments Scheme (FPS) was in excess of £1.7 trillion in 2018 from over 2 billion transactions. However, compliance and regulatory timescales and restrictions on FPS testing has limited the number of new entrants to the real-time payments ecosystem. Our 'Express' service offers real-time payments capability without long regulatory and compliance timescales.
