With over 40+ economies in the world shifting to real-time payments schemes over the last decade, the market demand for immediate access to funds is undoubtedly at its peak.
The TCH RTP® not only provisions for real-time transfers and requests for funds but also fills the gaping hole of real-time information through an extensive set of messages. By limiting transactions to credit push alone, it mitigates the risk of unauthorized debits and the cost of follow-up investigations. Most importantly, it creates the foundation of trust for consumers to adopt seamless digital transactions and for fintechs to create evolved use cases around this window of opportunity.
Fostering Market Led Innovation for B2B Payments
The Clearing House’ RTP® bases itself on an evolved framework of use cases that cater not just to the consumer needs of P2P or B2C payments but focuses equally on challenging use cases around the 23.1 trillion $ B2B payments space. Increasingly, domestic businesses are evaluating the RTP® scheme for most of their settlement needs because of significantly lowered costs of 'invoice to payment reconciliations' and 'receipt re-associations' that promise better cash flow visibility.
However, is putting in place a real-time payments infrastructure enough to solve the need for businesses today?
Real-time Ready but not Real-time Digital Yet
With over 57% of U.S businesses at some point in their individual digital-transformation journeys, the demand for real-time and digital payments is only partially met by the RTP® which provides the foundational network infrastructure native APIs to the ecosystem. Not without thought and as a deliberated upon decision, this whitespace is left to be addressed for technology providers to co-create.
