ACI Worldwide has added support for the European Payments Council (EPC) SEPA Instant rulebook to allow payment service providers connect to any domestic or pan-European EPC-based instant payments scheme.

ACI Worldwide is supporting EPC within its Universal Payments (UP) solutions portfolio, including UP Immediate Payments and UP Real-Time Payments.

The US-based payment systems company offers a multi-scheme solution based on standard European SEPA Inst gateway to financial institutions and PSPs which can be modified to suit the requirements of any domestic or pan-European instant scheme.

The gateway can support the connectivity and functional requirements of any real time clearing and settlement mechanism.

It can also support other non-Euro-based schemes in development in nations such as Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.

ACI Worldwide director solution consulting immediate payments Barry Kislingbury said: “ACI’s standard European SEPA Inst gateway offers the utmost flexibility for our customers as the implementation will not be dependent on the availability of an individual instant scheme.
