While payment exceptions are a relatively small percentage of overall transactions, their impact to billers, financial institutions, businesses and consumers is significant. Exceptions require someone to manually resolve the issue, in turn creating additional expense for the business and for processing organizations. Consumers’ payments are often delayed, resulting in late fees or service impacts, and negatively impacting good will.
