Can I receive international transfers?
You can receive only SEPA Credit Transfers. We don’t execute incoming international (non-SEPA) payments.
What is Instant payment?
It’s a SEPA Credit Transfer in euros that can be made between financial institutions across 34 countries of the European Economic Area that are members of the SEPA Instant payment scheme. The payer’s money will reach the beneficiary’s account within seconds. This is a secure and convenient way to transfer money in a real time mode.
When Instant payments are executed?
The service is available 24/7, all year round, including weekends and holidays. Funds are credited instantly even if financial institutions are located in different countries.
Are there any limitations for Instant payments?
- The payment amount should not exceed €15 000, and the payee’s financial institution has to be also a participant of SEPA Instant payment scheme.
Why I’m not able to make a SEPA Instant payment?
There can be several reasons why you can’t make a SEPA Instant payment:
1. The beneficiary bank is not a member of SEPA Instant scheme, and therefore can’t accept a SEPA Instant payment;
2. The payment amount exceeds €15 000;
3. Temporary technical issues of the SEPA Instant system.
In this case you can choose to make an ordinary SEPA payment (not Instant).
How do I know if the beneficiary’s financial institution accepts Instant payments?
When you place a beneficiary’s account number in the payment form, the system automatically checks if their financial institution can process Instant payments, and if not, the Instant payment will not be available.
