Inclusive Instant Payment Systems: An Evidence-Based Approach from Design to Impact
In recent years new digital payment technologies such as mobile money have driven financial inclusion in emerging markets. Some of these emerging markets are now transitioning from closed-open payment networks to open-loop, instant payment systems. Instant payment systems streamline payments between individuals, merchants, and financial institutions. These systems create a more cash-like experience by adopting technology that allows clients with different financial service providers to send and receive money.
In this webinar, panelists presented a new white paper “Inclusive Instant Payment Systems: An Evidence-Based Approach from Design to Impact,” which explores how these systems work and the status of interoperability in emerging markets.
