Any business that sends and receives money can use PayID to give each of their customers a simple and human-readable ID that works across any payment network and makes payments easier with greater network reach. PayID is an open standard, so anyone can build implementations and extensions on top of PayID.

PayID creates a common protocol that allows for interoperability between payment networks. Ripple’s Ethan Beard said PayID aims to make global payments simple and fast. He quotes:

“If sending a payment were as seamless as sending an email or text, we would all send more payments quickly and easily around the world.”

“Payments will need to be interoperable between fiat and cryptocurrency, and easy to send and receive across the globe.”

PayID is already in wide use in Australia, where it was progressively introduced over the last three years. The majority of bank and crypto exchange users in the country can send and receive instant money transfers at any time, 24/7.
