Instant Payment Market Dynamics

Instant payment technology is gradually being adopted by most countries as an innovative network that improves payment infrastructure by ensuring transactions happen in seconds and without interruption. Some countries such as India see instant payments as an opportunity to create more financial inclusion by simplifying access to digital banking for those who cannot access a bank account. India is leading the adoption of instant payment in the world and is already working on expanding its Unified Payments Interface (UPI) platform to other countries. Countries leading the race to adopt instant payments are now focusing on developing regional instant payment networks that will enable international fund transfers in different currencies.

Instant payment systems reduce the reliance on card scheme networks to enable international transfers, making transactions cheaper. Linkages should stimulate cross-border transactions both for consumers and businesses and thus benefit the growth of regional economies. Linkages will improve data privacy between users of platforms as transactions can be executed with an email address or phone number.
