SWFT Launches SWIFT Go, fast, cost-effective service for low-value cross-border payments

 New service enables businesses and consumers to send payments in seconds with full transparency and strong security, SWIFT Go is a key building block in the co-operative’s strategy to enable instant and minimal friction cross-border transactions; Seven leading global banks already live with the service.
SWIFT today announces the launch of SWIFT Go, a transformative new service that enables small businesses and consumers to send fast, predictable, highly secure, and competitively priced low-value cross-border payments anywhere in the world, direct from their bank accounts. Seven global banks, which collectively handle 33 million low-value cross-border payments per year, are already living with the service.
SWIFT Go enables financial institutions to offer a seamless payments experience for low-value transactions often started by small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to pay suppliers overseas and by consumers sending money to friends and family internationally. Using tighter service level agreements between institutions and pre-validation of data, SWIFT Go enables banks to provide their end customers a fast and predictable payments experience with upfront visibility on processing times and costs.
The SWIFT Go service builds on the high-speed rails of SWIFT GPI, which have transformed the speed and predictability of high-value payments. The service marks another milestone in SWIFT’s strategy to enable instant and minimal friction transactions from one account to another, across SWIFT’s network that connects over 11,000 institutions, and 4 billion accounts across 200 countries worldwide. It will further strengthen the capabilities of banks to serve their customers in the high-growth small business and consumer payments segments.
Stephen Gilderdale, Chief Product Officer, at SWIFT said: “SWIFT Go is a further step towards achieving our vision of enabling anybody, anywhere, to send money instantly and securely around the world. The new service is a direct response to the needs of small businesses and consumers for easy, predictable, secure, and competitively priced cross-border payments. Our new service will allow banks to compete effectively in one of the fastest-growing segments of the payments market, delivering a seamless experience for their customers.”
