Do you want a hand in shaping the future of the nation’s payments system? The U.S. Faster Payments Council (FPC) is an industry-led membership organization established so Americans can safely and securely pay anyone, anywhere, at any time and with near-immediate funds availability.
FPC members use private-sector approaches to address issues that inhibit adoption of faster payments, and enable end users to reach each other in ways as seamless and transparent to them as mobile texting.
The FPC gives members an edge in navigating the evolving faster payments landscape:
Are you interested in having a voice on issues that currently stand in the way of achieving faster payments ubiquity in the United States? The FPC is currently recruiting members for 10 work groups:
Develops an educational and awareness program to foster better understanding of faster payments and confidence among providers and users, ultimately driving adoption and transaction volumes, toward the industry goal of ubiquity.
Works with existing fraud sharing forums to identify enhancements that will make processes more efficient and effective, with an aim towards fostering better user experiences, bolstering confidence and trust in faster payments.
The FPC has a significant role in developing the future of faster payments in the U.S. market, and that's one of the main reasons why Walmart is directly involved.
I believe the most important thing for us to focus on as an industry in order to advance faster payments is collaboration; we have that at the FPC.
The FPC provides opportunities for a broad and diverse group of stakeholders from across the payments ecosystem to come together, tackle critical issues, and increase industry awareness.
Consumer groups have a strong voice in the FPC, with meaningful participation in Board decision-making, which confers opportunities for our perspectives to be heard on important issues related to consumer protections, end-user experiences, and financial inclusion.
