Just on news tonight BNZ ditching cheques mid next year. Know been discussed before but can't remember answer to question.

 

I only write cheque about once to twice every 10 years, but as the limit for bill pay is about $10,000? how will things above this amount be paid for.

 

If buying a house will a suit case of money be needed? Only things I've used cheques for is house and more frequently car purchases.

 

Last car purchase around 5 years ago was $20,000, paid for by using cheque book, how will that work going forward?

 

Cheers.

Bank transfer.

 

If you don't trust your internet connection / net banking in general, then you can arrange for your bank to facilitate this for you.

Credit card - load money onto it if it will exceed the limit

 

Banks can do manual transfers for large amounts if you are limited to 10k

Tell or ask the bank that you want to extend your eftpos limit for a particular purchase.

 

I have done that in the past... can't remember the process and what questions the bank asked.

Don't know about BNZ but I know with ANZ you can increase the maximum one off payment amount to different limits up to $250k 

 

 

 

ASB limit is $100k under Fastnet Classic

Can do credit card with loading cash but would prefer not to pay a surcharge on a large amount.

 

If can see the bank to arrange transfers over limit that would work. Thanks.

I just looked it up for BNZ, one off payments from internet banking are limited to $50,000. I didn't look earlier as didn't expect it to be that high.

 

No worries for future car purchases then, won't be buying a Tesla. :)

I can confirm that you ring BNZ and ask them to increase the limit to $x and they give you a window of time to do it until it drops back.

I'm fairly sure when I purchased my house, with everything moving so quickly, they must've done a bank transfer.

@rugrat You are kidding? Yes people carry around bags of cash to pay for houses and cars that are valued over 10k

 

I paid a $250,000 deposit on my house from my 00 account in 2 minutes after walking into a Bank

I bought a house last year, and somewhat scarily can't remember how I paid the deposit... Wasn't a cheque though. 

 

Transferred just under 50K from ASB to my lawyer it seems...
