The convergence of mobile technology and digital commerce is leading to real-time payment innovation around the world. While the United States market has seen a recent increase in the development of innovative payment products, RTP® represents a new phase in the evolution of digital payments, marking the creation of the first new payment system in more than 40 years.
How can faster payments support your objectives of meeting payment deadlines, improving customer satisfaction, reducing costs, and streamlining your internal processes? The first step is to understand emerging payment types and how they may answer your business needs.
The Clearing House is a banking association and payments company, owned by 25 U.S. banks, including PNC. It launched RTP in November 2017.
Currently, credit transactions up to $100,000 per item are eligible.
No, users of the RTP system can initiate payments from their existing accounts.
While speed is a key benefit, real-time payment confirmation and messaging capabilities also provide the ability to include more information with the transaction, such as remittance data and references to external data. RTP also facilitates enhanced messaging between participants, with Request for Information (RFI), payment, and Request for Payment (RFP) messaging.
When you send a payment, the availability of funds in the recipient’s account will depend on the funds availability policy of the recipient’s financial institution. Limitations to availability may apply, including “cut-off times” by which items need to be deposited to be included for processing on that business day.
