Credit Transfer – Instant BtoB Payments Soon to Take Off

  • EUROPE – SWIFT trials a cross-border instant payment service in Europe based on their gpi solution and TIPS platform. Read more
  • MALAYSIA – Deutsche Bank lets corporate clients rely on the Malaysian instant payment platform, in turn based on ACI Worlwide and PayNet services. Read more

The Instant Payment trend brings along new opportunities for merchants and businesses. Industry players are now crafting innovative payment experiences using real-time credit transfer rather than card payments.

In Malaysia, businesses may now transfer money in less than 20 seconds via DuitNow and its so-called “Any ID” concept. The global interbank messaging network SWIFT also comes up with more plans to expand the reach of instant cross-border payments across Europe.
