The above fees are not refundable in the event that the fund is returned to the sender by the recipient's bank for any reason, e.g. discrepancy on the beneficiary's name.
For immediate fund transfers to accounts held with other domestic banks (available for transfers to domestic banks participating in the IRIS Online Payments system, on working days (08:00 -16:15) for amounts up to Euro 12,500), the sender pays an additional charge according to Alpha Bank’s current Price list.
- Transfers abroad
For fund transfers to accounts held with banks abroad, the payment method for the charges is SHA, which means that Alpha Bank's charges are paid by the sender and the recipient bank's charges by the beneficiary.
If the recipient bank is not in the EU or if it is within EU but the currency of the transfer is not Euro, the amount credited to the beneficiary's account may be reduced by the charges incurred by the correspondent banks that act as intermediaries for the transfer of the amount to the recipient bank.
