Payments in the Real time payment system

The volume trend in real time payments in the Bankgirot Real Time payment system BiR has been strong since inception about 12 years ago. In February 2024, BiR was closed down as real time payments are now handled by Riksbanken, Sweden’s central bank. This as a part of the transformation of the payment market in Sweden, which has been going on for several years. No payments was therefore made in BiR during June.
