Peru Plans Instant Payments Network That Links Fintechs, Mobile Bank Accounts


“Peru is working to link banks, fintechs and mobile wallet providers into an interoperable hub for instant payments using real-time technology provided by Mastercard . With a launch set for early 2022, Peru will be the second Latin American country after Brazil to introduce an ISO 20022-based instant payments scheme. Peru’s new system will use mobile phone numbers and email addresses as proxies for bank accounts to increase financial inclusion in the country. Combined with the ISO 20022 messaging standard, this will enable the system to deliver a wide range of payment services that aren’t possible with legacy systems connecting banks in other countries such as Argentina, Colombia and Mexico.”
