As consumers’ desire for efficient, on-demand, and seamless digital experiences expands, account-to-account (A2A) transactions loom as a contender for their payments. Faster payment rails, including the coming FedNow service, will create new opportunities for use cases across the payments ecosystem.

- What are account-to-account transfers?
- How do RTP and ACH payments differ?
- What are the compelling use cases for A2A payments?
