The flows task force have been working on defining a normalized set of terminology for the flows and have identified a particular set of terms that require normalization.

To date the WG has used the terms __payer__ and __payee__ to identify the sending and receiving parties in a payment respectively. Many discussions and documents use the terms __user__ and __merchant__ as these are the most common specializations of these roles however the ISO20022 terms are __debtor__ and __creditor__.
