TrueLayer has published new recommendations for the EU to deliver a European payment method based on Open Banking and instant payments, in a newly released report, according to The Paypers.
The report is entitled `Payments in the EU — Building better user experience through open banking & SEPA Instant` and it outlines the manner in which policymakers can build on these existing initiatives. The EU should optimise the possibilities for businesses and customers to access safer, more convenient, and faster payments by building on Open Banking rules detailed in the Payments Services Regulations (PSR), as well as following the Instant Payments Regulations (IPR).
Included in the recommendations provided in the report are the process of lowering the cost of instant payments for clients by keeping fees low, as well as improving the competition around instant payments by allowing fintechs access to payment systems on a non-discriminatory and proportionate basis. At the same time, the companies should focus on designing improved user experiences by eliminating the challenges and obstacles in the Open Banking payment journeys, as well as removing IBAN discrimination in order to create a single European payments market.
