Enjoy unique ease and speed in your direct payments to your suppliers, for imports within the European Union.

Take advantage of the user-friendly service of myAlpha Web for transactions concerning imports from the European Union and pay your suppliers abroad directly in Euro, by selecting from the following:

  • same day deposit to the foreign supplier’s bank account held in Alpha Bank.

Furthermore, the service gives you the opportunity to print and save the receipt with a cost breakdown as well as a copy of the payment order (if available). 

Limitations

The payment must not concern:

  • Documentary Collections received from a bank, transport company or commercial agent, containing terms with which Alpha Bank must comply, such as instructions for the delivery of documents against payment/acceptance, for the payment of a commission to an agent, transport or insurance company etc.
  • Clean Collections such as IOUs, Promissory Notes, Bills of Exchange and Cheques, containing terms with which Alpha Bank must comply.
  • Payment of an obligation from an already existing import file under deferred settlement.
  • Letters of Guarantee or Standby Letters of Credit.
  • Documentary Credits.

For these cases of payments which cannot be made via the “Simple Imports within EU” service as well as for all other Imports (in Euro and in Foreign Currency, within and outside the European Union), companies can use the Alpha Web International Trade service, given that they are already subscribers to it or contact their nearest Alpha Bank Branch.

Cost
