Trustly, the company that helps customers pay directly from their bank account, launched Instant Payouts for U.S. users this week.
The service helps U.S. businesses provide their clients with near-instant payouts to their bank accounts. Instant Payouts in the U.S. is made possible via a partnership with Cross River Bank, which participates in The Clearing House’s (TCH) RTP network, a real-time payments rail.
Trustly’s business users can fund payments with Cross River Bank, which will send RTP payments on their behalf to their customers’ accounts at other participating RTP banks.
“The RTP network provides a platform for financial institutions and their corporate users to create innovative new payment products for their customers,” said TCH SVP of technology and Innovation Bijan Chowdhury. “Trustly’s partnership with Cross River Bank to deliver Instant Payouts to U.S. businesses and Cross River Bank’s use of the RTP network to send instant payments to the the businesses’ customers illustrates the power of the RTP network to boost innovation in the payments industry.”
Trustly was founded in 2008 and supports card-not-present payments for online merchants to offer a secure way for consumers to transact using their online banking access credentials. Last year, the company processed over $21 billion in transaction volume in its network. At FinovateEurope 2017, the company debuted Direct Debit, a payment offering that removes the pain of entering payment card information by allowing users to transact using their current account by entering their bank login credentials.
Trustly works with more than 8,100 merchants, helping them connect with 525 million consumers and 6,300 banks across 30 countries. The company has 500 employees across Europe, North America, and Latin America.
