Treasury and Payments
Instant payments: Instant rewards
Real-time payments use cases expand, provide value for businesses
- Real-time payment (RTP) networks provide value to businesses in both the “front-of-house” and the “back office.” For instance, RTP can help businesses improve a customer-facing product; internally, it could enhance liquidity and cashflow.
- APIs provide corporate treasury departments with instantaneous connectivity, which helps businesses participate in RTP networks and expands the number of use cases beyond banks.
- For example, a gas distributing company may use the RTP service to get paid faster for filling up a gas station’s supply tanks, which is known as payment on delivery.
- With the influx of data that comes with RTP, banks can help corporates ingest and harness that data across the business’ ecosystem to improve competencies down the chain like, for example, enhancing their own fraud account takeover capabilities.
- Request for pay will continue to be a big focus in the future, along with enabling debit-like functionalities with consent mandate services. Cross-border payments will also be important.
