Unimportant question of the year:

 

Is it better to make a funds transfer at 9am on Monday compared to over the weekend?

 

(For speed of transaction)

I did ANZ to ANZ transfer on a Sunday, person got money straight away

Fastest way If can, is use same bank person you are paying has account with.

If different banks, the earlier you pay, the earlier they get money though can be a delay, I.e it might go through 5am Monday, but if you pay 9am, it can’t go through any earlier then that.

ANZ to ANZ of course it will be instant lol

Doing funds Transfer at 6pm Saturday or 8am Monday morning between NZ banks makes zero difference

I have no idea why you even think it would

It would depend on the times the banks do transfers between each other.
Not a 100% sure but think it’s two hourly now, if you know there’s no bank interchange in the weekends then fine.

It was only a few years ago that An ANZ to ANZ transaction after 10pm Friday would not not go into the receivers bank until sime time early Tuesday morning. The only ones that had live transactions were ASB and HSBC. Thankfully the banks have woken up and now you can go any bank to any bank within and hour.

 

It used to frustrate the hell out of me I could not pay a supplier same day but I could do a TT to Australia virtually instantly.

 

So I can see how the OP could ask this question.

Moving money between NZ banks has been fast (business days) for a long time a number of years

I work in the team that manages the payments systems at a large bank.

 

Lets say banks send batches of payments very regularly after 9am on a business day.

Reading between the lines the OP is asking whether a live payment made during business hours Monday will get processed before things that have been queued to run over the weekend and "jump the queue" so to speak...

Thanks michaelmurfy.

 

I have had issues in the past with transfers being unreliable when made over the weekend, whereas my last gazillion transactions made during working hours appeared within a max of 2 hrs.

 

Bank with BNZ.

It's just some type of batch file (guessing) that gets processed at fixed times much like a job that runs in Cron on a Linux box

All payments over the weekend will be included in the very first batch the bank sends on Monday. No preference is given.

To the OP, is the other party also with the BNZ? I've just made a transfer BNZ to BNZ (as a test), and the payment was instant (at expected).




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yes BNZ to BNZ is instant. But to other banks it's a batch process. I think things are much improved nowadays compared to years ago. IIRC it took a few days at one stage!

Yes, it used to be slow regardless. You hadn't mentioned if it was between banks or just BNZ\BNZ.
