Making payments faster remains top of the agenda for the financial industry and in the US NACHA – The Electronic Payments Association is right at the heart of the process. With same day payments set to hit the market this September, we caught up with NACHA president and CEO Janet Estep at Money20/20 in Las Vegas. During an interview in the Finetics™ Studio she talks progress, challenges and what lies ahead for the industry this year.
“It’s not only the payment,” says Estep. “The challenge is getting everybody do it in the same way. It’s also about the attached systems. The payment might move across, but if you can’t post it to the end account that’s a problem. I’ve had businesses says to me ‘it’s great if I can receive an ACH the same day but if you don’t send the data that helps me post it to my internal account I can’t do anything with it’. For now having payments plus information is part of the challenge.”
