RTP is more than just a faster solution, it’s a complete overhaul of outdated processes.
WHAT IS RTP?
Real-time payments over the RTP network provides consumers and businesses the ability to conveniently send payments directly from their accounts at federally insured depository institutions 24/7 and to receive and access funds sent to them over the RTP network immediately. Financial institutions that use the RTP network to make faster payments on behalf of their customers benefit from the RTP network’s real-time final interbank settlement. The RTP network represents a new phase of evolution within the U.S. payments industry and provides a platform for product innovation. Financial institutions can leverage a variety of features – enhanced speed, security, and messaging capabilities – to create unique offerings for their retail and corporate customers.
