And all of this can happen 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

RPP also offers consumers (via participating institutions) a simpler way to pay through a Proxy Addressing Service. Once consumers register for the Proxy Addressing Service, they can receive payments via easy-to-remember information such as mobile numbers or NRIC numbers, without the use of banking account information. Consumers will be able to move their Proxy Addressing Service identifier between accounts or financial institutions, empowering customers to route their incoming payments easily.
