Who will use FedNow?
FedNow is used by any bank or credit union that chooses to adopt the service. Individuals, businesses, and government entities with accounts at participating banks have access to FedNow. The Fed has relationships with over 10,000 different financial institutions, and all financial institutions eligible to hold accounts at Reserve Banks will have access to FedNow.
Faster payments like FedNow will support a variety of use cases, as shown in the diagram below.
The FedNow charge per transaction for sending money will be $0.045 for each credit transfer, paid by the sender. The charge per transaction to receive money will be $0.01 for each request for payment (RfP) message, paid by requestors.
The primary difference between FedNow and RTP is that they are distinct payment rails managed by separate parties. FedNow (releasing in July 2023) is managed by the Federal Reserve and RTP (originally released in 2017) is overseen by The Clearing House.
