Open Payment Network, The Clearing House, and instant payments in the US

According to data from The Clearing House, transaction volume on EPN, the ACH network from The Clearing House, increased 9.6% in 2021, surpassing the broader ACH market as financial institution customers continued the shift to electronic payments that accelerated during the pandemic.

The association disclosed that in 2021, US ACH network volume increased 8.7% as business and consumers switched to electronic payments. During that time, EPN carried approximately 50% of overall ACH US commercial volume and 55% of the volume from the 50 largest financial institutions. There are approximately 300 financial institutions processing with EPN. With the upcoming NACHA rule change that increases the value limit for Same Day ACH transactions to USD 1 million, TCH estimates that volumes across US ACH networks should continue to rise by the end of 2022 and beyond.

Open Payment Network enables financial institutions to deliver instant payments. By connecting to OPN's secure technology platform, financial institutions become the gateway for instant payments via Internet and mobile device. 

The OPN platform integrates with existing core systems and moves payment value and associated data in real time for immediate settlement. Financial institutions can provide access to the OPN API so business customers, fintech developers and internal teams can create applications such as instant mortgage payments, payroll processing, and peer-to-peer payments.
