SWIFT Low Value Payment API

Version 5.0 Dev Version 4.0 Live
APIs

As the world embraces new waves of digitisation, the experience consumers are accustomed to in their day-to-day lives has been transformed. In the payments world, that translates to an expectation that payments be fast, with transparency baked in up-front, and an elegant and seamless user experience. The foundations we’ve laid over the past forty years in the high-value inter-bank payments space, in particular with SWIFT gpi, give us the exciting opportunity to transform the experience in the SME and consumer space as well.

Our Solution

The new low-value payments offering will enable SMEs and consumers to make fast, easy, predictable and competitively priced cross-border payments from account-to-account.

  • Easy to use, the service will have a simple and streamlined user experience with security ingrained at every level.

  • Fast payments, tighter service levels between banks will increase speed. A single payment format will increase straight through processing, while existing services such as pre-validation will remove frictions that cause delays.

  • Competitive prices, predictable and competitive processing fees are agreed bilaterally between financial institutions, enabling them to provide their end customers with upfront transparency on fees.

  • Secure, payments will be exchanged through the secure SWIFT network and cleared through best-in-class channels for international payments.
