    FNB to FNB EFT

    Hi all,

    Hope this is in the correct category.

    I have a FNB Silver Cheque account. Someone did an EFT last night from their bank account ( FNB Savings ) to my FNB Cheque account at 22:20

    The money only reflected today. Aren't FNB to FNB EFT's instantly available?

    I'm asking because a debit order has now bounced due to this money not reflecting immediately.

    I went to the bank & the Manager told me that after 7pm it only reflects the following day. Which I think is BS.

    Please could anyone help, before I take an AK-47 & make a turn at the bank.

    Thank you

    Sounds like bull to me.

    I EFT transfer from my FNB account to my wifes FNB account, any time of the day or night, and it shows immediately.

    Yea well apparently the last batch is at 7pm. I think it's a load of crap. What, so if I do an EFT at 2am that person must wait a few hours for it to reflect? BS

    Thats the whole point of doing EFT's from FNB to FNB.

    Between certain times of the night, early morning, the amount does reflect, but it is in suspension, and not available. It can take the whole next day for it to be available on your bank balance.

    I have many EFTs coming into my account, I think if it is after 10PM and before 7AM it does not reflect on your bank balance but is shown on your statement.

    Cant talk for FNB, on Absa - absa, anytime of the day the transfer is immediate.... i find it all sounding a little surprising and that also put FNB very behind in terms of EFT?? Even if i do an immediate EFT from Absa at 8.00pm to FNB (at extra cost naturally), my brother in laws acc, the money is there straight away!

    So should I go through the trouble of making a turn at the bank and asking about this? Or just leave it?

    Standard Bank have the following paraphrased policy, which I assume FNB will have a similar one:

    Standard to Standard can take UP TO 24 hours to reflect (even though they appear immediately 99% of the time).
    Other to Standard UP TO 3 days to reflect (even though they appear the next day most of the time if done before 7pm).

    They essentially cover their asses for unexpected glitches.

    The 7pm is typically an inter bank cut off time. I don't see why that time would be of any consequence for same bank transfers.

    The bank will also most likely hold the view that you should always ensure that funds are available in good time. Not always so easily done though.

    You won't win the argument with the bank, but you might feel better. Depends on you.

    Yes, the manager told me, "Sir, funds for debit orders should be available a day before the time in your bank account".

    I just want them to reverse the damn penalty charges. R210

    I have an idea ....

    Tired of being jerked about by your bank manager ?

    For just R99 once off, we'll add HIS e-mail address to our 'send spam please' list and distribute it to every new junk mail sender we receive junk from.

    Yes, all it costs is a once off registration fee of only R99
