Transfers between Alpha Bank accounts
Transfers between Alpha Bank accounts using the Alpha e-Banking services (regardless of the amount to be transferred) are free of charge.
Transfers to other domestic banks
For transfers from an Alpha Bank account to accounts kept with other domestic banks, the following charges apply, depending on your choice of payment regarding charges:
- Shared (SHA)
Alpha Bank's charges are paid by the sender according to the Bank's current price list, and by the beneficiary according to the current price list of the recipient bank.
- Paid by the sender (OUR)
The sender pays all charges for the fund transfer which include:
-Alpha Bank's charges: according to the Bank's current price list
-Surcharge for covering beneficiary's bank charges (OUR): additional interbank charges based on bilateral agreements between Alpha Bank and the corresponding recipient banks.
The above charges are not refunded if the remittance is rejected by the other bank for any reason, e.g. inconsistent beneficiary name.
For immediate fund transfers to accounts kept with other domestic banks (available for transfers to banks participating in the IRIS Οnline Payments system, during working days from 08:00 to 16:15, for amounts up to Euro 12,500), the sender pays an additional charge according to the current price list.
- Transfers abroad
For fund transfers to accounts kept 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 the 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.
