MeetUp on Instant Payment - FinTech Belgium


With a summer barbecue

Brussels, June 29th 2017 by FinTech Belgium


How Instant Payments will push the financial sector to innovate

I want it all, and I want it now – it’s the consumer’s anthem for having packages delivered, ordering food or finding a taxi driver. Payments are next, and the financial industry needs to follow.
As opposed to real-time payments with smartphones, transferring money between banks or cross-border (SEPA payments) often takes several days to be processed and is limited to a maximum value. That is why at the end of 2017, Europe will introduce SEPA Instant Payments: a real-time payment system where interbank transactions will be cleared within maximum 10 seconds at any time of the day and 365 days of the year.

In our next meetup, we will discuss how Instant Payments will push the financial industry in Europe to innovate. During a panel discussion with industry experts, we will go deeper into how Instant Payments will be a game-changer for Fintech, Finance and eCommerce industries.
