The agony of split bills and chasing payments could be over from today with the launch of what’s been hailed as the biggest revolution in digital banking in more than two decades.

From midday today the New Payments Platform, dubbed the “most modern payments system in the world”, will go live.

With a simple PayID users will be able to use their existing online or mobile banking to transfer money instantly to accounts held in different financial institutions.

Payments can occur 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will appear instantly in the receiver's account, and both parties will receive a receipt.

Google explores texting from your browser

  Google explores texting from your browser Google's Android Messages app could soon get a dramatic makeover with some interesting new features, judging by an APK teardown by XDA Developers and Android Police. Unlike Allo, however, Android Messages could allow you to send mobile SMSes rather than web messages, making texting a fair amount easier. To use it, you may have to scan a QR code on your PC or Mac, then pair your device each time you want to text. The feature appears to be partially implemented in the latest Android Messages 2.9 APK, but you can't yet send an actual text.

The New Payments Platform was developed to meet these objectives, whilst providing the infrastructure needed to support the digital economy of the Currently, the New Payments Platform is owned by 13 financial institutions participating in the NPP: the ANZ, CBA, NAB, Westpac, Cuscal, ING

The New Payments Platform is a 24x7 payments network connecting all the major Australian banks and many other financial institutions. It 's aims are to provide a faster settlement and a richer set of services than the current 1-2 days taken to transfer funds between institutions.

Even better, there’s no need to collect someone’s BSB and account number.

Instead, users can use an email address or phone to create a PayID.

NPP chief executive Adrian Lovney says Australians will appreciate having their money available 24/7.

Banks wary of higher fraud risk from real-time payments

  Banks wary of higher fraud risk from real-time payments Banks are on guard for an increase in money-transfer scams as a shift to near real-time payments pressures them to detect suspicious transactions more quickly. With the new payments platform (NPP) launched to much fanfare on Tuesday, fraud risk is getting close attention within banks, which will have much less time to detect and halt questionable transfers of cash.The focus on fraud prevention comes amid confusion from some bank customers over their access to the NPP, as banks including National Australia Bank and Westpac explained on social media that many customers could not immediately access the service.

The New Payments Platform has gone live, but what does it mean for you ?

The New Payments Platform is a centralised platform that facilitates real-time clearing and settlements of Osko is a service built on the New Payments Platform which will enable near real-time payments , typically in less than a minute, 24/7, including weekends and public holidays

"It will make payments faster, easier, and more convenient than ever before,” said Mr Lovney. “With Osko, you'll no longer have to dash to the ATM late at night to get money for the babysitter.”

This sounds great but what difference will it make to the average Aussie?

In real terms, it’s another reason to avoid carrying cash, and will make payments more efficient than ever.

Take the average self-employed tradie, for example. When they're not doing quotes or working on jobs, much of their time is spent chasing down payments from customers.

Under the NPP, a tradesman could invoice a customer, be paid instantly, and have a digital transactional record to use come tax time.

But the convenience isn't limited to the self-employed.

Say you're out to dinner with a group of friends, and the bill arrives. It's rare for one person to carry enough cash to shout the table – and even rarer for everyone to have the correct change to split the bill.

Australians will finally enjoy the ability to send each other money in “real time”, with the launch of the New Payments Platform (NPP) today. The platform is a mixture of new processes for settling transactions between banks, guided by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Using the NPP, each party could instantly transfer their share to one diner and have those funds instantly available.

"We know Australians are frustrated about the amount of time it takes to move money between accounts at different banks, which can sometimes be as long as two to three days," Mr Lovney said.

The option to pay to a PayID will appear within your normal mobile or online banking. This process may differ slightly according to each bank. In some, the ability to pay a PayID will be an automatic option.

In others, you may be required to choose an Osko payment first. Over time, it’s expected other payments products and services will include the option to pay a PayID.

"You'll be able to pay them on the spot in under a minute, in your secure banking environment, 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

A full list of participating financial institutions can be found on the NPP website.
