What is NPP in a few words

Launched on the 13th of February 2018, the New Payments Platform is an industry wide initiative aiming to develop a new national infrastructure providing fast, flexible, data rich payments in Australia.

The NPP provides Australian consumers with real-time, 24/7 payments to meet the demands of the new Digital Economy. It greatly simplifies payments by allowing business and customers to register an easy to remember PayID linking an email address, phone number or ABN to a bank account. It also increases competition between banks by making these PayIDs easily transportable between financial institutions.

The NPP also provides support for Overlay Payment Services which act as applications plug in to the NPP system to provide additional services customers that ties with their payments.
