Our Industry Initiatives
Open Cross-Border Payments
The PayCommerce platform aims to provide access to banking and financial services institutions around the globe. Global financial institutions, domestic networks and corporations trust us to perform payment transactions; exchanging millions of standardized financial messages daily. This involves the reliable and secure exchange of payment data while ensuring its confidentiality and integrity.
The objective is to enable our member institutions (banks, corporates and payment service providers) to enable cross-border disbursements and acceptance transactions worldwide. Using the PayCommerce platform and messaging infrastructure, the transaction originators, distributors and beneficiaries can collaborate all on a single platform. This improves transparency, security while saving money. PayCommerce significantly reduces the use of intermediaries that are involved in a transaction, in order to improve speed and costs, while helping members mitigate compliance and settlement risk.
Members can join PayCommerce network and will be validated for compliance purposes before they are given access to the network. We are working with the banking communities in countries across the world – to be both a facilitator of payment transactions and a reliable platform and messaging infrastructure for our members. We aim to fulfill this duty with maximum efficiency and sustainability.
Our strategy focuses on 5 key priorities, linked to a specific objective:
- Transact securely and in a reliable manner between trusted partners and customers globally
- Reduce transaction processing costs for originating members and distributing members
- Enable new revenue opportunities and direct global access for financial institution members on the network.
- Bring efficiency through process automation, compliance and risk management of members using industry standards for payment processing by our members across borders.
