Challenges of Legacy Payment Methods

Traditional payment methods such as checks and ACH transfers can be slow, expensive, and lack real-time visibility.

How Instant Disbursements Work 

There are multiple ways that funds can be dispersed instantly in the U.S., including the RTP network and the new FedNow option.  Payouts Network leads with the push to card technology offered by Visa and Mastercard to deliver a seamless claim experience that doesnโ€™t require collecting bank account or routing numbers.  The recipient just validates their identity by answering a challenge question and then enters their debit card or reloadable prepaid card number to receive the funds instantly. If they expect to be paid again, they can opt in to save their card information, so they donโ€™t need to enter it again. And the experience is white labeled to match the payerโ€™s brand.
