Monica Eaton-Cardone Says Instant Payments Demands Consistent Standards
The new FedNow™ service promises to bring instant payments settlement to the US market. However, Chargebacks911® COO Monica Eaton-Cardone suggests this new platform will create vulnerabilities, too, as outlined in a new feature for ValueWalk.
ValueWalk provides widely-read and cited investment news and coverage. Their beat includes hedge funds, asset management, value investing, and much more. The site analyzes business, politics, and tech trends, and how they might impact investors’ portfolios.
On one hand, 80% of all business owners say they’d like to have the benefits of instant payments settlement. At the same time, this would mean completely overhauling the entire payments process. And, given that the existing process already has plenty of oversights and shortcomings, this would create problems.
“First we need to establish consistent and fair standards for chargeback process and management,” Monica says. “Only then can we start talking seriously about instantaneous payments really working.”
