Plaid Transfer (US only) is a flexible multi-rail payment platform designed for companies looking to add or improve their bank payment solution. Transfer provides all of the necessary tools to easily send and manage ACH, RTP and FedNow transactions, including:
Easy integration with a single API: Avoid the need for multiple service providers. Connect user accounts, make smarter transaction decisions, manage risk, and move money—all through a single Plaid integration.
Fast settlement, simplified reconciliation: Sweep transaction funds into your treasury account quickly and balance your books with an intuitive reconciliation report.
Multi-rail routing: Dynamic routing between RTP and FedNow. Fall back to same day ACH if needed
Streamlined operational support: Manage daily operations with dashboards to easily monitor transfer activity.
Payment risk reduction: reduce your return rates by using Plaid's risk engine.
Plaid Transfer provides a full-service funds transfer solution for payers and recipients within the US. If you prefer to use a third party payment processor, or if you or your counterparties are outside the US, see Plaid Auth instead for a bring-your-own-processor funds transfer solution.
