Fast Payments has been used to describe many payments systems over the years. Today the industry is looking at the notion of real time retail payment systems that allow consumers and businesses to pay each other 24/7/365 by moving money from one bank account to another as the definition of a “fast payment”. In this workshop, we begin with an overview of the key concepts and building blocks for these systems. We then look at some of the recent developments in domestic systems around the globe. We conclude by examining how these systems are being used across all payment domains and the overlay technologies supporting this expansion.
