NOW® is a Network for our World. It's an intelligent money movement network that connects financial institutions, billers, small businesses and consumers. NOW is designed to speed the movement and management of money for a need-it-now world.
The NOW Network enables the secure exchange of money and information in real time and is an integral part of delivering a profoundly simple payment experience.
We've combined three proven capabilities – bill payment (CheckFree® RXP®), person-to-person payments (Popmoney®) and account-to-account transfers (TransferNow®) – and powered them with the NOW Network's intelligent money movement to create a simple and integrated experience. Those solutions will operate on a single platform and deliver a significantly improved user payment experience that delivers speed, ease and convenience.
The NOW Network also acts as a gateway to card-based networks such as Visa®, Mastercard®, STAR®, Pulse® and Accel®, as well as noncard networks, such as Early Warning Systems, enabling real-time payment connections. Integration to the NOW Network is possible through PEP+®, additional direct-to-core options and multiple partner networks.
