The Need For Payment Speed

Payment Speed

Payment speed has never been more top of mind or important than now. In a recent PayPal survey, it found that 76% of small businesses in the U.S. have reported they are struggling with cash-flow shortages and 91% said having real-time payments could help with some of that. Organizations like Payments Canada and Nacha are working with their respective payment networks to usher in real-time payments for both consumers and businesses. At VoPay we’re also committed to improving payment speed and offer several different payment services that have varying funding times. Let’s have a look:

EFT / ACH, Intelligent EFT / ACH (iQ11) and Bulk Interact e-Transfer are all available through VoPay’s single API or payments platform. Learn more here.

Top 8 Payment Methods By The Numbers

Top 8 Payment Methods

We looked the 8 most common payment methods used in Canada. Cheque and EFT payment values clearly eclipses all other payment methods by a significant margin. These numbers are mainly driven by account to account payments by businesses and present a significant opportunity for modernization. It’s important to keep in mind that these Payment Canada numbers are from 2018 so we can expect cheque payment value to continue to decrease and shift to other payment methods.

VoPay’s next generation EFT payment service will help support businesses in finding new efficiencies including improved cash flow through faster funding times, bank account verification for added security and account balance visibility to decrease NSFs.

The Digital Payments Surge

Digital Payments Surge

This month the Bank of Canada designated Interac e‑Transfer as a prominent payment system which means the payment service will now be regulated by the Bank of Canada and highlights the importance of digital payments for both consumers and businesses, particularly during the pandemic.

In 2019 Interac’s e-Transfer system recorded approximately 486 million transactions worth about $169 billion. Those numbers are expected to dramatically increase in 2020 for both consumers and businesses with the current trends we’re seeing:

E-Transfers can allow businesses to move blocks of money around at a low cost and can provide a cheaper alternative to credit cards and offer much faster funding times then EFT payments.

ONE:ONE with Inverite’s Lloyd Evetts

Lloyd Evetts

Welcome to our new ONE:ONE blog series where we sit down with thought leaders and pioneers in the fintech, payments and open banking space.

Our first chat is with Lloyd Evetts, Director of Business Development at Inverite, a leading open banking provider with coverage for over 275 Canadian Financial Institutions. 

Q&A

1. What’s one thing everyone should know about Inverite?

My two partners and myself have each been involved in Financial Technology for over 20 years in payments, lending and now data aggregation.  One of the first questions I’m usually asked is how we have support for so many more FI’s than anyone else – experience goes a long way!

2. What’s your role at Inverite?

My role here is split between product management, business development and operations.  My background in IT has proven to be a great strength too, I work very closely with both our and our client’s technology teams and understand what goes into an integration and how the data is used.

3. What gets you most excited about the VoPay Inverite partnership?

I think the payments space is poised to see the same kind of radical change that we saw in credit decisioning with the introduction of open banking, and I think VoPay is at the forefront.  I’m excited to see how our data and coverage can help them innovate.

4. What does the future of open banking look like?

I’m optimistic that we’ll see a collaborative landscape where the incumbent FI’s and Fintech’s work together and we really unlock the potential of open banking and consumer-directed finance.  We all know the regulatory track has been delayed with COVID-19 but there is important progress being made by industry lead organizations.

5. Who is your fintech/ tech hero and why?

Eva Wong.  Borrowell was one of the first major Canadian players to really see the potential of a data driven approach and invest in data science.   I’m continuously surprised and impressed by how they leverage alternative data in their new products and finally also their involvement with groups like the Canadian Lenders Association who promote ethical lending practices.
