The reception of the sum costs nothing, no costs but depending on the banks each transaction can be billed to those who make the transfer 0.70 euros, 1 euros, or even more. In fact each bank chose its price, some have opted for free, such as the postal bank. You should know that the real cost price calculated by the European Central Bank (ECB) is 2 cents per bank transfer.

It has existed for 45 years in Japan and 30 years in Switzerland ! It represents only 11% of the total transfers in euros made in the European Union.

The Committee welcomes the increase in payment accounts to issue and receive instant transfers in almost 50 % of banking establishments in France. But France is lagging behind: the CNPS points to the lack of notoriety of this service to individuals and professionals. A promotion campaign will be set up to promote the immediate transfer in France in 2022.

The European Commission wants to impose the instant settlement

On October 26, 2022, a legislation proposal was presented by the European Commission. The European Commission wants to oblige all banks in the European Union and therefore French to offer an instant payment offer at no additional cost compared to the conventional transfer.

He also forbids them to submit these instant payments to costs above those of traditional transfers. An obligation to verify the correspondence between the IBAN account number and the name of the beneficiary, to avoid fraud.

What a risk with an instant transfer ?

Be careful, this transfer is irrevocable, not going back. It is of course necessary to take precautions such as changing password regularly to access the application of the bank (in the event of theft). Well check the recipient of the transfer, by making him a phone call for example, in order to check if it is his laptop !

Paylib also explained that “its service is secure, you have to enter your phone -related codes and then to the mobile application. And then, with Paylib, no need to communicate its bank details so that all personal data remain protected within the customer’s banking system “.
