The launch of the Federal Reserve’s instant payment system, FedNow, is changing the U.S. payments system. It’s now one of only two real-time payment systems in the country. But how long will it take banks to adopt the first publicly run real-time payments system and what will its best use cases be?

Join the editorial team from Payments Dive for an insightful virtual event discussing this evolving landscape. With our industry executives, we’ll delve into how banks will (or won’t) accept this change, the potential ripple effect across commerce, and whether FedNow is a payment option for merchants eager to embrace an alternative to credit cards.

During this free event, our industry professionals and journalists will address questions all payment professionals will need to know, such as:

  • How has the uptake of FedNow by banks and other market participants fared vis-à-vis industry expectations?
  • What may discourage or prompt banks to adopt FedNow this year, and how could that impact payments companies and transactions nationwide - for better or worse?
  • How could faster payments via FedNow and its rival RTP network change American commerce?
