What is PayNow?

What is PayNow?

PayNow is a peer-to-peer fund transfer service that enables all users of the participating banks and NFIs to settle funds via their bank accounts or e-wallets to another via Virtual Payment Address, mobile number, or Singapore NRIC/FIN instantly.

The underlying technology behind PayNow is FAST, which enables 24X7 near real-time transactions. This enables the sender to simply load money into another’s wallet/bank account without knowing the provider of their wallet or issuing bank.

PayNow can also be used by corporate businesses, government agencies, societies, and others, that are termed “entities.” This enables entities in Singapore to instantly pay and get paid in Singapore Dollar funds by simply linking their Unique Entity Number (UEN) to their Singapore bank account. The best part, this service is available 365 days a year without any limitations.
