Frequently asked questions
Does SBS have experience with CSMs?

Yes. We have extensive experience collaborating directly with CSMs. We work with several partner banks in Belgium to provide a mutualized connection to interbank systems as well as the hosting for the clearing solution.

Is SBS ready for European reachability?

Yes. We’re able to provide a direct connection to pan-European TIPS from BCE or an indirect connection to TIPS through other CSMs.

What are the Instant Payment use cases currently deployed?

Our solution provides the flexibility and scalability to meet numerous use cases for both individuals or corporates in various contexts — for instance, P2P, C2B, B2C (e.g., pay employees’ salaries), or B2B (e.g., pay suppliers).

Is it necessary to buy the complete Instant Payment solution, even if I only want to use the connection to CSM?

No. Our component approach allows customers to use one component independently from the others. For example, Instant Payment Clearing Exchange (IPCE) can be implemented as a stand-alone component to manage connectivity to Instant Payment interbank networks.
