Variable Recurring Payments (VRP) is viewed as either one of the most important innovations in UK payments in the last 20 years, the end of Open Banking, or not much use for anything outside sweeping payments from one internal account to another.

In this webinar, we look at which of the three it is most likely to be, what that means to the industry, businesses and consumers.

We look at the industry and external factors that shape the development and adoption of VRP and look ahead to how you can make sure that your business and your customers are best placed to benefit from VRP.

We will look at the Payment Systems Regulator’s recently issued report into the Digital Payments Initiative and the impact that this might have on the adoption and spread of services like Variable Recurring Payments as well as its wider recommendations.

You will come away from the webinar with a better understanding of the purpose of VRPs, having gained insight into the issue and challenges around their deployment and understanding the potential impact of the latest report from the new Open Banking regulatory body, the PSR.
