On average, there are 1.5 million instant payments per day number in Sweden
The European Central Bank (ECB) and Sveriges Riksbank have entered into the agreement offering Sweden access to the instant settlement system. This way, e-payments made in Swedish krona can be settled on the platform for instant payments operated by the Eurosystem.
The ECB’s Target Instant Payment Settlement (TIPS) allows payment services providers to transfer and settle their customers’ money in real-time. What is more, the customers can settle the payments in central bank money.
This agreement has already been signed by ECB President Christine Lagarde, the Governors of the Eurosystem’s 19 national central banks, and Sveriges Riksbank Governor Stefan Ingves.
