Piraeus Bank announces the launch of instant transfer of funds service via bank's website between your own bank card to any other card, regardless by which bank it was issued.
Instant money transfers are possible between Visa, Visa Electron and MasterCard cards, issued by any Ukrainian bank within the territory of Ukraine. There is no necessity to visit the branch or the bank’s electronic banking platform to make a transfer; it is done directly via the bank’s website following very few easy steps. To make a transfer one should indicate: the sender’s (16 digits) card number, the card’s validity period (month, year), CVV-code of sender’s card, the amount of transfer and the number of recipient’s card.
Safety of transfers is guaranteed by 3DSecure system or, if the sender’s bank does not support this technology, the operation is confirmed by a one-time sms-password.
Ilias Mouzakis, a Member of the Board of Piraeus Bank stated: "We have to realize the fact that the banking system moves towards the direction of remote servicing, which is understandable given the today’s style of living. When time is counted in seconds, it is very important not to waste it by standing in queues and giving additional explanation. Everything should be as simple, fast and safe as possible. All these are met by our new service."
Transfer fee is UAH 5 + 1% of the payment amount. The minimum amount of replenishment is UAH 5, and the maximum is UAH 6000.
On July 21st, 2022, the National Bank of Ukraine introduced changes on the transactions and operations carried out abroad (outside of the territory of Ukraine) on Hryvnia (UAH) cards and accounts. Those new limitations are only related to operations, carried out abroad from UAH cards and accounts, whilst foreign currency cards and accounts have not been impacted from those restrictions. In detail:
UAH12.500 equivalent in foreign currency per 7 days from the first time of withdrawal. The limit is not calculated cumulatively.
UAH80.000 equivalent per calendar month for transactions at POS terminals (physical presence of card or NFC technology on phone), purchases on the internet secured by full 3DSecure* and recurring payments**.
UAH20.000 equivalent per calendar month for the rest type of online transactions.
