Cross Border Payments
This is why many financial institutions have decided to leverage the global SWIFT and Visa networks for cross-border payments.
With more than 660 banks signed-up to the SWIFT gpi service, with the capability to channel payments into over 1,300 country corridors and 150 currencies. Every day, banks send the equivalent of over $300 billion in value and 56% of SWIFT’s 17 million daily messages.
Whether our customers need help to launch Instant Payments, or want to update and optimise their existing real-time payments infrastructure or take advantage of our kick integration for SWIFT gpi or Visa B2B Connect, Bottomline is here to partner you to the strategy that best fits your financial institution.
It is important to recognize that it isn’t a case or either/or for Instant Payments and Cross Border Payments – each have their own use cases and benefits. Financial Institutions and Banks need to plan a strategy for both to truly remain competitive in today’s fast-evolving payments ecosystem.

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.
