Payments case study How a clearing house developed a real-time payments strategy and earned $5M in incremental revenue

An automated electronic clearing house in Latin America wanted to better compete with card-based and closed-loop competitors. It partnered with Mastercard payments consultants to implement a payments strategy that included four key phases: analysis of the operating models, exploration of global best practices, prioritization of opportunities and design of a detailed implementation plan. As a result, an additional $5 million in revenue was generated for the clearing house and 3B+ additional transactions in 5 years.
