http://www.zengin-net.jp/en/zengin_net/zengin_system/0000The original fast payment system is Japan’s Zengin. The Zengin system allows consumers and
businesses to initiate fast domestic payments and collections (direct debits) using a number of
methods ranging from paper based instructions and ATM transactions (neither of which fits our
definition) to online and mobile payment initiation. As the system has evolved over time virtually
all deposit-taking financial institutions in Japan now participate in the Zengin system which
processes payment requests in real-time during normal business hours.
Zengin is notable not only for the early development of fast payments but also for its commitment
to continued innovation since 1973 adapting the system to changing consumer and business
behaviour as well as to the evolution of thinking on the topic of payment systems risk by global and
national regulators. Zengin-Net’s mission statement includes the following statement: “We aim to
realise a clearing system that responds flexibly to environmental changes and is able to continually
undergo innovation.” While the speed remains the same Japan’s flavour of fast has changed with
the times.
With the Sixth Generation Zengin System implemented in late 2011 Japan now has a fast payment
system that supports bulk and individual message payment requests a dual scheme that supports
both net settlement and real-time settlement based on value (RTGS for payments greater than 100
million yen) and optional use of XML-based formats including ISO20022 for certain message types.
