GO FURTHER IN PAYMENTS
The Center for Payments™ is a joint program sponsored by ten payments associations for the purpose of helping members and staff better prepare for the continued evolution in U.S. payment systems. The mission of the Center for Payments is to advance the payments industry as a united voice through market intelligence and thought leadership. This program further enhances the value of membership in the participating associations. Current participants in the program include: ePayResources, EPCOR, Macha, NEACH, PaymentsFirst, SHAZAM, Southern Financial Exchange, The Clearing House Payments Authority, UMACHA, and WesPay. These associations represent over 10,000 financial institution members, businesses and stakeholders with an interest in U.S. payment systems.
The ten associations sponsoring the Center for Payments have over 40 years’ experience supporting the evolution of the U.S. payment systems by providing guidance to the industry, and by partnering with rule makers, regulators and other industry partners. All ten associations are individual members or supporters of Nacha, ECCHO and the Faster Payments Council and participate in the rule making processes of those organizations. The associations are also actively engaged in other industry development activities led by The Clearing House, Federal Reserve Financial Services, regulators and other industry partners.
