Same-Day ACH Payments: UK’s FasterPayments Service now has consistent payment limits

One great problem with same-day ACH payment services is that to get the service started the banks have to agree to allow individual member banks to set their own transaction limits and levels of service. This is a problem in the US with the Secure Vault Payment System, launched in November 2011, which has only around 40 US banks providing Secure Vault Payments with different limits.

The banks in the UK developed their Faster Payments offerings at their own pace and with different transaction limits for the various methods of accessing the service. It is only now, four years after the infrastructure was launched in 2008, that most banks have similar transaction limits, see table below.
