The Postal Payment Services User Group (PPSUG) was established with a view to ensuring, within the worldwide electronic postal payment network, the continuing focus and degree of responsiveness required for the development of quality products and services in a highly competitive and dynamic payment services market environment.
The PPSUG operates within the remit of Committee 4 of the Postal Operations Council.
PPSUG members are able to enhance their electronic postal payment services and benefit from:
- The PosTransfer trademark;
- Adoption of the PPS Multilateral agreement;
- Projects on quality of service implementation based on the Quality of Service standards;
- An automated Clearing & Settlement, known as PPS*Clearing;
- The development of new technologies.
The PPSUG has contributed to the finalization of the PPS Operational Guide, the update of the PPS Multilateral Agreement and PPS AML/CFT rules, the deployment of the UPU’s collective PosTransfer trademark, the establishment of PPS quality of service standards, and the implementation of the PPS e-Compendium and the Financial Electronic Inquiry System (FEIS) relating to postal payments.
The package of available software tools enables postal operators to offer electronic postal payment services with state-of-the-art guarantees to secure payments between operators and protect the interests of consumers, senders and beneficiaries alike. These services are complemented by the UPU’s PosTransfer trademark and a set of additional tools for business and quality support.
