Understanding the New Payments Platform

The New Payments Platform (NPP) is a major industry initiative to develop new infrastructure for Australian payments. It will provide consumers, businesses and government with faster, simpler, smarter payments.

Indue is shaping the new face of Australian payments through being only 1 of 13 founding members of the NPP initiative, demonstrating the industry’s trust in our payments experience to deliver.

At launch, NPP will provide an industry tested, payments ready solution encompassing the network, switching and addressing infrastructure to enable the exchange of payments between directly connected participants.

Four organisations  have collaborated with financial institutions to develop the NPP:

  • NPPA: New Payments Platform Australia oversees the build, operation and management of the NPP and is owned by the 13 participating financial institutions of which Indue is one.
  • SWIFT: Appointed the vendor responsible to design, build and operate the Basic Infrastructure (BI).

 

  • RBA FSS: The RBA’s Fast Settlement Service (FSS) will be the new service of the Reserve Bank Information and Transfer System (RITS) supporting the settlement of payments from NPP.
  • BPAY: Appointed as the first overlay service to use NPP, known as OSKO. Consumers will be able to access Osko via their FI from launch with payments settled in less than a minute.
