Panel: Instant payment users – ready to engage?
The SEPA Instant Credit Transfer (SCTinst) scheme was launched on 21 November 2017 and TARGET Instant Payment Settlement (TIPS) is set to go live in November 2018. Instant payment initiatives have been implemented in some European countries but a full roll-out across Europe is still pending. Are banks ready to offer instant payments to their customers? What is needed to speed up the process? What do end-users need? And can common payment initiation apps accelerate the process?

Event hosted by the European Central Bank
In November 2018 the Eurosystem will launch TARGET Instant Payment Settlement (TIPS), a new service for settling instant payments in euro. TIPS will be compliant with the SEPA Instant Credit Transfer (SCTInst) scheme developed by the European Payments Council to accommodate instant credit transfers across the Single Euro Payments Area. However, TIPS, or any other market infrastructure alone, will not be enough to ensure that the citizens of Europe start using instant payments. Apps that can easily initiate instant payments will also be needed.
To help create awareness about instant payments, the European Central Bank (ECB) invites all interested service providers to develop a solution for an app that can be used to initiate transactions for settlement. See below to find out how you can attend and potentially have the chance to present your end-user solution at a market event organised by the ECB.

|How can I take part?||Send an email to TIPS@ecb.europa.eu, expressing your interest.|
|Closing date for expressions of interest||1 December 2017|
