Real Time Debit
Real Time Debit is a new way to make online payments. It enables consumers to make one-off and recurring debit payments directly from their bank account rather than using a credit or debit card.
Real Time Debit creates a seamless relationship between consumers, business and financial institutions, improving the timing, accuracy, and lowering the cost of processing online payments.
A new payment option for consumers
Real Time Debit is easy and convenient for consumers. Real Time Debit uses a direct-to-bank API so the bank controls the authentication, authorisation and settlement process, rather than a third party. Customers log in through their bank’s user interface. Once authorised, Real Time Debit transactions are treated as "cleared funds" and can be settled into a merchant's account immediately.
Efficient and cost effective for merchants
Merchants have an immediate debit payment authorisation, which means they can continue the online business process to conclusion, including the payment reconciliation to their finance system or ERP. Payment acceptance costs are reduced as Real Time Debit merchant fees are capped.
New revenue stream for banks
Banks gain a revenue stream from these payments where there was previously none, enabling them to invest in making access to their banking systems more open.
Real Time Debit, which sits within Datacom’s Payment Manager, offers out of the box, simplified payment processing and automation of receivables while providing value to all stakeholders in the payment process.
Reduced Costs, Improved Reconciliation & Reporting
Combining our direct or batch data exchange with CRM and financial systems information delivers faster, more accurate reconciliation and reporting for merchants.
Multiple payment channels using existing systems
Datacom’s Level 1 PCI Compliant Payment Manager Service offers bank account or card-based payments on any connected device. Real Time Debit uses the same payment engine as existing web, mobile, SMS and IVR channels meaning minimal change to backend systems.

Datacom’s Payment Manager offers a single, simple payments processing interface integrated to multiple banking platforms and payment networks. Our payment services support single or recurring payments using tokenisation for secure transaction processing. Datacom provides the tools to help support and manage your day to day payments processing.
