Rapyd also enables high velocity and high volume transaction types, in addition to a diverse range of payer and beneficiary use cases, such as one-to-one and mass-payouts in business-to-business, business-to-consumer, and person-to-person situations.
A batch payout is referred to as a Mass Payout. You can make several payouts to persons or corporations, all within the scope of a single transaction. Mass Payouts can be processed either manually or automatically. Examples of common applications for bulk payments include paying gig workers, insurance claims settlements in batches and transfers of pensions in batches.
An efficient method for transferring money to a bank account utilises the SWIFT – Enterprise network. If a Payout is used, a beneficiary can receive money sent from Rapyd. If the recipient of your wire transfer has an overseas bank account that is part of the SWIFT network, you can send them money by using the Swift Transfer payout method, also known as xx_swift_bank. Common use cases for SWIFT Payout are when an employee’s bank account is located overseas or with a business partner in a different nation (B2B).
