ACI Worldwide powers real-time payments launch in Malaysia

Monday 14 January 2019 10:33 CET | News

ACI Worldwide has announced that Payments Network Malaysia (PayNet) has implemented Malaysia’s Real-Time Retail Payments Platform (RPP) using ACI’s UP Real-Time Payments.

The first service offered is DuitNow, an instant credit transfer with a national addressing database that links mobile numbers and national ID numbers to account numbers. The service allows bank customers to send money instantly to accounts that are addressed by easily known identifiers, such as mobile phone numbers, identity card or passport numbers, and business registration numbers.

Following the launch of DuitNow, the two companies are currently focusing on the introduction of new payments services, including QR payments, request-to-pay, e-mandates and real-time debit in the country.

ACI has a global customer base of financial institutions and payment service providers using its UP Immediate Payments solution. In the UK, the solution has been used by financial institutions to access the UK Faster Payments scheme since its launch in 2008. Currently, more than 50% of the scheme’s payments are being processed by ACI solutions.
