The Current State of Real-Time Payments in the United States: Talking to the Providers, 2020 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "The Current State of Real-Time Payments in the United States: Talking to the Providers" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

In late 2017 The Clearing House (TCH) launched an entirely new payments infrastructure called Real-Time Payments (RTP) which was designed to provide instantaneous clearing and settlement with always available processing for domestic payments in the United States.

To better understand the actual state of adoption of RTP, the publisher reached out to a number of the top banks to determine the progress of their real-time payments initiatives related to the RTP network.

Senior payments professionals at seven systemically important financial institutions and a third-party service provider agreed to be interviewed, the general viewpoint being that sharing their experiences would help promote greater industry knowledge and encourage adoption of RTP, seen as a clear benefit to the U.S. payments industry.

The Current State of Real-Time Payments in the United States: Talking to the Providers, provides a direct view into the how, why, and when of launching connectivity to RTP. Adoption rates have been rather tepid, and through the eyes of those responsible for advancing the real-time businesses at their institutions and through their comments on their institutions' experiences, one learns that moving large organizations into an always on systems and service environment is not a job for the faint of heart. As more banks and third-party providers are now connecting to the RTP network, uses become more scalable and valuable.

There has been noticeable uptick in recent RTP project activity as more businesses learn about the actual advantages of an entirely new payments rail with unprecedented speed, data, and communications ability, so any institution that has been considering a launch effort would do well to listen to some of their peers about how to get it done.
