U.S. Bank among first to go live on clearXchange with real-time
payments

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–U.S. Bank customers can now send money to and request payment from
anyone across the country with an option for those funds to be available
in real time as U.S. Bank goes live on the clearXchange network. The new

done easily online or on a mobile device.

“U.S. Bank is a pioneer in its mission to provide customers a safe and
easy way to send money to another person anywhere in the country,” said
Gareth Gaston, executive vice president of omnichannel banking at U.S.
Bank. “U.S. Bank has invested heavily in clearXchange and parent
company, Early Warning, because we believe person-to-person payments in
real-time is the future of fast, secure payments. The service saves
customers time when paying another person, and has the security of
online or mobile banking. With the click of a mouse or the tap of a
screen, U.S. Bank customers can quickly split a dinner tab with friends,
or send cash as a birthday gift to their kids in another city.”
