Real-Time Payments: The Exciting State of the Union

Businesses actively seek payment solutions that provide access to real-time payments.

Boston, November 17, 2021 – Real-time payments have become an essential part of the fabric of the payments industry globally. In the U.S., adoption really began to take off after the launch of The Clearing House’s RTP network in November 2017. Checking in on this four years later, much progress has been made to enable the majority of business accounts in the U.S. to at least be able to receive a real-time payment.

This report details the first RTP transaction and looks at the most predominant use cases, use cases to come, and, most importantly, the opportunity cost of not offering businesses access to real-time payments. It is based on three Aite-Novarica studies: a quantitative survey of 117 U.S. community banks and credit unions from Q2 2020; a Q1 2021 quantitative survey of 251 payment decision-makers at small, midsize, and large enterprises in the U.S.; and a February 2021 quantitative survey of 213 U.S.-based midsize and large businesses.

This 27-page Impact Report contains seven figures and three tables. Clients of Aite-Novarica Group’s Commercial Banking & Payments service can download this report.

This report mentions BNY Mellon, U.S. Bank, and Volante.
