Pidgin, U.S. Century Pidgin, a secure real-time payments platform built for the future of payments, announced that U.S. Century Bank has chosen to partner with Pidgin to bring real-time payments to its growing customer base.

U.S. Century has selected Pidgin as its newest FinTech partner after an extensive evaluation process to provide instant payments to its customers, giving them a fast, easy and secure way to send and receive payments. With Pidgin, payments are routed directly from financial institution to financial institution. Since the platform eliminates the need to use a holding account by a third-party provider or a virtual wallet, Pidgin facilitates a more secure transaction.

For personal accounts, Pidgin is a single solution to send and receive payments directly from a checking account. There is no waiting or transfer period. Once a transaction is complete, funds are available almost immediately. For businesses and merchants, Pidgin makes it easy to accept real-time payments from customers with no waiting or transfer periods. Businesses get access to their funds faster and, as a result, can pay employees and vendor partners quicker.

Additionally, Pidgin supports the use of different payment routes, including FedNow, real-time payments, as well as same-day ACH. As a result, U.S. Century Bank can route payments according to speed, cost and network, which ensures payments arrive when an accountholder needs them, at the lowest cost possible.

“U.S. Century Bank provides the latest state-of-the-art technology for our customers that simplifies the banking process. As part of that mission, we strive to adapt as technology evolves and serve our customers with world-class banking, payment and technology solutions,” said Andres Collazo EVP and Head of Information Technologies and Operations for U.S. Century Bank. “That’s why we chose to partner with Pidgin. With their real-time payment platform, our bank will maintain its competitive edge while also facilitating a more positive customer experience.”

“The demand for real-time payments is growing, among consumers and businesses alike. With nearly one in four banks planning to roll out real-time payments in 2023, according to research from Cornerstone Advisors, there is no better time than now for banks to search for a fintech partner that aligns with their goals and mission,” said Abhishek Veeraghanta, CEO of Pidgin. “U.S. Century Bank is getting ahead of the curve and making real-time payments possible for the customers they serve. We look forward to our partnership.”
