US real-time payments initiative revolution will work in real-time with no delay

At the NACHA Faster Payments 2017 conference earlier this month, more details of The Clearing House (TCH) Real Time Payments (RTP) initiative emerged:

  • it clears AND settles from end-to-end within seconds, unlike CHIPS and Fedwire which clear fast and then settle later in the day.
  • RTP will run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • settlement takes place on an individual transaction basis
  • corporates will get immediate confirmation and simplified reconciliation
  • banks will no longer need to perform reconciliation in a batch mode
  • RTP will have complete visibility, end-to-end PLUS the originator of the transaction will know when the other participant receives the money
  • immediate confirmation of settlement will be provided to the buyer
  • RTP will also move information - invoice numbers, and information that’s required in terms of being able to post that transaction - through secure banking channels, and corporates will even be able to send a message back through that same secure channel to request additional information in real-time if they don’t understand what the payment is for
  • once a transaction is settled, there is no ability for payer to come back and revote or recall the payment.

CTMfile take: The Clearing House Real Time Payments initiative will be a revolution that will impact all other payment systems in the USA, just like Faster Payments in the UK.
