Consumers shop in stores and online regularly, and most have become accustomed to immediate gratification. Features like “buy now” buttons, same-day delivery, instant savings, instant upgrades, and brands like Instacart and Instagram are now the norm. Many consumers also prefer using digital “pay now” debit payment methods and increasingly want to make and receive payments instantly.

Real-time payments enable retailers to improve customer experiences, reduce payment costs, and better manage cash flow.
