What is a directly connected non-settling participant?

Directly connected non-settling participants have a direct connection to the payment scheme’s central infrastructure where they can submit and receive payment messages, scheme messages and transaction reports. However, they use a sponsor bank (an existing direct settling participant) to settle on their behalf, using the sponsor’s settlement account at the Bank. Directly connected non-settling participation is not available in CHAPS.<br/><br/>
