Chesapeake Financial Shares Inc (OTCQX:CPKF), which operates as the bank holding company for Chesapeake Bank, a community bank serving central and eastern Virginia, said it has joined the Real-Time Payments (RTP) network developed by The Clearing House.

With the RTP network, Chesapeake Bank customers can now receive payments directly into their accounts with real-time receipt confirmation and instant availability, while also providing for advanced messaging capabilities.

"Our customers need financial technology tools that align with their personal and business needs. Supporting real-time payments through the RTP network is an important step for us, allowing us to deliver new functionality to our customers, and improve their banking experience," said DJ Seeterlin who is the chief information officer at Chesapeake Bank.

"We are proud to be an early adopter of the RTP network, which demonstrates our commitment to be at the forefront of technology and payments."

The RTP network currently reaches 53% of US demand deposit accounts, offers a flat pricing structure for all depository institutions regardless of size, and doesn’t include volume discounts, or have minimum volume requirements.
