Instant payments

Instant payments represent a quick transfer of funds between accounts held in different banks. Payment can only be made in EUR, in which case the funds are credited to the beneficiary's account within a few seconds of being sent from the payer's bank. This applies at any time, including weekends and holidays.

How SEPA instant payment works

Benefits of instant payment

  • Speed - one of the biggest advantages of instant payments is the speed of their processing. The funds are credited to the beneficiary's account within a few seconds, regardless of whether the beneficiary's bank is located in Slovakia or abroad.
  • Simplicity - entering a SEPA instant payment is as easy as entering SEPA payments. It is sufficient to enter the same information as for entering a standard SEPA payment.
  • Convenience - instant payments have the potential to gradually replace some card or cash transactions. You can use them for payments in brick-and-mortar stores, for online purchases - and the goods or services you pay for will be made available immediately. Other examples of the use of instant payments include services for which the provider requires payment immediately.
