    Default How long does a Standard to Standard EFT take to go through

    Is it immediate or is it next day? If the latter, why the delay?
    You only get one chance to piss off a client. After that they are an ex client ...

    Mine has always been immediate...
    CellC & Vodacom think its OK to charge more in middle of contracts, shows what they think of you, when your contract ends, hit their wallet

    I EFT'd the Mrs. Told me it reflected like 5 minutes later when she checked her balance. I'm not married though. This was 3-4 weeks back.

    Depends on when you do it and also what type of bank account.

    I've got 3 different ones and one takes forever (CC), the savings is normally 1 banking day and the cheque seems to be immediate.
    Character is how you treat those that can do nothing for you.

    Not gospel but I'm told if there are debit/stop orders going off on that business day they take precedence, EFTs will only be effected if funds permit at end of business day.

    If it's same bank then 2 to 3 hours, if it's bank to bank then it's 2 to 3 days.

    Geez, Standard Bank is really a rubbish bank then... With ABSA it's immediate, from ABSA to ABSA.

    If i transfer to another bank before 15:30, it'll show around 19:30 that same evening. For an extra R2, I tick a box, and goes through IMMEDIATELY to ANY BANK, at anytime. :-)

    uuum, I think it also depends on what time the transaction is done. If it is before a certain time (not sure when but around 17:30) then the money will be in the receiving account immediately. After a certain time, it will be there the next morning.

    Credit card payments take a day to reflect :/

    Usually immediate, however if you are transferring to your CC, then it takes 24 hours.
