Early Warning Launches Real-Time P2P Payments with Bank of America, U.S. Bank

Company now enabling two Top 5 U.S. banks to deliver P2P transfers
with immediate funds availability

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Early
Warning
, the industry leader in real-time payments, authentication
and risk mitigation, today announced that Bank of America is live and
actively processing real-time person-to-person (P2P) transactions
through Early Warning’s clearXchange™ network. Bank of America is one of
the first banks to go live along with U.S. Bank.

Customers at both banks are now able to send eligible real-time P2P
payments to customers at either bank, with funds made available for use.
The solution is unique in its ability to provide consumers with
immediate access to funds, directly in their bank account. Bank of
America and U.S. Bank have a combined reach of nearly 22 million mobile
banking customers in the U.S.

“Bank of America is committed to being a leader in payments and making
it easier than ever for our clients to manage their finances,” said
Thong Nguyen, president of retail banking at Bank of America. “We’re
focused on creating a simple, straightforward person-to-person payments
experience that lets our customers pay anyone with a couple of easy,
intuitive steps.”

Real-time P2P payments are processed in two simple steps. First, after
enrolling in their bank’s money transfer program, a customer initiates a
P2P payment through online or mobile banking channels using a qualified
recipient’s email address or mobile number. Second, a payment
notification is sent to the recipient and funds are made available for
withdrawal using any channel, including in the branch, at the ATM, with
a debit card, at a point of sale, or more. Consumers’ account
information is not shared and fund transfers are protected by the banks’
comprehensive authentication and fraud prevention tools.

“At Early Warning, our vision of faster payments is an ecosystem built
by financial institutions to provide consumers the ultimate in
convenience, flexibility and safety,” said Paul Finch, chief executive
officer, Early Warning. “Today, I am pleased to see that vision become a
reality with Bank of America and U.S. Bank. We are proud to partner with
these forward-thinking institutions as we bring our real-time payment
solutions to consumers nationwide.”
