Trustly and Cross River Lead RTP® Adoption Approaching 10% of Total Network Volume

Trustly, a global leader in Open Banking Payments, is proud to announce significant growth of its Real-Time Payments (RTP®) service. Trustly’s RTP® volume grew 29% in transaction volume and 31% in payment value from Q2 2023 to Q3 2023, and has become one of the largest originators currently on the RTP® network.

Trustly continues to make its account-to-account payments platform the most advanced “pay with bank” service. In partnership with Cross River, a financial services and technology infrastructure provider that offers embedded financial solutions, Trustly launched instant payouts in the US, enabling merchants to provide instant payouts to their customers. The rapid adoption of Trusty’s RTP® service has led Trustly to approach 10% of the RTP® network’s total transaction volume. 

Reports from The Clearing House reveal that in Q3 2023, there were 64 million transactions, up 11% from Q2 2023, totaling $34 billion in transaction value, up 18% from the previous quarter. Trustly and its banking partner, Cross River, an early participant in the RTP® network and the second largest RTP® originator in November, have been instrumental in the growth of the rail, with Trustly’s year-on-year RTP® growth from Q3 2022 to Q3 2023 booming by over 160%, significantly outpacing the network’s year-on-year growth.

Since its launch in 2017, RTP® has consistently grown in volume, with hundreds of financial institutions utilizing the network. Trustly and Cross River will continue to foster the adoption of RTP® as it matures and more merchants and consumers realize its benefits.
