RPPS parameters

You can use the RPPS rail in Arix to electronically transfer funds to pay loan proceeds directly to billers. Borrowers who select to use this rail, can have funds sent directly to billers to pay down their outstanding bills, most typically used to pay down outstanding credit card bills.

The rail uses Mastercard's RPPS rail system. Arix sends an API call to the CRB RPPS gateway, which in turn sends a request to Mastercard to transfer funds. Mastercard then sends a credit to the biller.

RPPS requests are batched daily by the CRB RPPS gateway when the system sends the batched requests to Mastercard for processing.

👍

Note

The borrower's credit card doesn't have to be a Mastercard. It can be any card issued by a biller that signed up to receive bill payments via the RPPS service.

PCI compliance

Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards ensure that sensitive credit card information is protected from fraudulent use. Arix processing complies with PCI standards.

When an RPPS transaction is initiated, Arix receives a request that includes the borrower's credit card number. This number is sent to a tokenization service that is Level 1 PCI-compliant. They send a token back to Arix, which stores the token.

When processing the RPPS batch, Arix calls to detokenize all the credit card numbers, and sends the credit card numbers in a file to Mastercard.

Arix logs contain only masked credit card numbers.
