Frequently asked questions
Yes, the convenience of immediate payments is available to all our clients, whether they are individuals or companies.
Since instant payments are based on SEPA standards, you need to provide the same information to enter an instant payment as to enter a standard SEPA payment. These are: the beneficiary's IBAN format account and the payment amount. You can also provide other optional data, such as a variable symbol or a recipient note. In the case of immediate payments abroad, the name of the beneficiary's account must also be provided.
No, as the funds are credited to the beneficiary's account within a few seconds, it is not possible to cancel or cancel the payment after sending.
No, instant payments can only be made in EUR. Instant payments are part of the "SEPA Instant Credit Transfer" scheme, to which Slovakia has also signed up, thus enabling clients to make instant payments in EUR within European countries.
Instant payments can only be made to banks that have voluntarily signed up to the new payment scheme. The currency of payment is always EUR. The maximum limits set by the bank for the execution of instant payments in individual distribution channels are specified in the section "Payment order and limits".
Express payments make it possible to shorten the standard time for processing transfers so that the payee's bank has funds at its disposal on the day of processing the payment order, while the express payment can also be made in a currency other than EUR. This type of payment is charged separately in accordance with the Price list of services.
