What are my options concerning the execution date of a payment?

Most payments can be submitted for execution at a selected date. However, there are a few exceptions, for which you can also choose immediate execution. Thus, payments can be executed:

The amount is transferred to the beneficiary's account immediately. This option is available for payments to Alpha Bank cards (whether they are saved in your profile or not), to Alpha Bank loans, such as Α700 and Alpha Revolving, and to various payments to private companies and organisations.  
At a selected date:
You can schedule a payment order for future execution. With this option, the earliest possible execution date is the current working day.

If you select the current working day as the execution date and you submit the payment order before 16:00 of that day, your  transaction will be executed at 17:00. Otherwise, if you select the current working day as the execution date but you submit the payment order after 16:00, the transaction will be executed after 22:00 on the same day. The relevant information is shown on the transaction copy.
