ACBB announced yesterday it is now supporting live transactions on the Federal Reserve’s new instant payment rail, the FedNow Service. ACBB is among the first service providers supporting transaction activity for financial institutions on the service.
Through the FedNow Service, ACBB is positioned to offer financial institution customers access to instant payments, helping them remain competitive and offer best-in-class service for their customers.

To support transaction activities for financial institutions participating in the FedNow Service, ACBB completed a multi-step customer testing and certification program in the months leading up to launch. Early adopters of the service include a diverse range of financial institutions and service providers across the U.S.
