Real-time payments have existed in some other countries for several years, and they are now a reality in the United States. Many financial institutions (FIs) are offering their customers the ability to send money in real time to family and friends quickly and easily and, in many cases, without a charge. New payment types are evolving—business-to-business payments as well as person-to-business payments, business-to-person (B2P) payments, and person-to-person (P2P) payments are becoming mainstream.
As payments continue to expedite, it’s more important than ever to ensure your organization is up to speed. Discover industry and market trends, P2P growth and some best practices for mitigating risk associated with faster payments.

People have engaged in person-to-person (P2P) payments for centuries–beginning with the barter system, through the invention of money and checks, and in the digital age, in which funds can be exchanged electronically via online and mobile applications. The size of the U.S. P2P payments market is driving intense competition between financial institutions (FIs) and alternative P2P payment services. Many FIs now offer P2P payment services as part of their overall digital banking experience in an effort to remain at the center of the consumer’s financial life. Alternative P2P payment services offer innovative digital P2P payment experiences to attract consumers, build a strong customer base, and drive revenue through other value-added products and services. Although digital P2P payment capabilities have been around for at least a decade, they have been slower to take off with consumers than media coverage might suggest, and research reveals that the digital P2P payments business is the FIs’ to lose.
