Raiffeisenbank’s BYSTRAYA POCHTA™ money transfer system and Elecsnet, a market leading payment terminals operator, have launched a joint project. Now, BYSTRAYA POCHTA™ customers can perform instant transfers via 1 500 Elecsnet self-service terminals in Moscow and the Moscow region. In the near future the service will be available in all Elecsnet payment terminals, which number about 5 000 across 27 Russian regions.
To send an instant transfer through an Elecsnet terminal, you need to obtain an ID code at an BYSTRAYA POCHTA™ service point in a Raiffeisenbank branch in Moscow and the Moscow region, or a unique ID card at the following Raiffeisenbank branches:
The ID code and ID card simplify the procedure for sending money through a terminal. To make a transfer using the ID code you must select «Payment systems, money transfers, insurance premiums.» Then select «BYSTRAYA POCHTA money transfers.» Enter the ID code and password, and then proceed to select the transfer details.
With the unique ID card it is even easier to make a transfer. Place the card on the yellow circle on the terminal, enter the password and then immediately proceed to select the transfer details.
Through the terminals, you can send transfers in Russian roubles within Russia and to neighboring countries. It is possible to receive a transfer at all BYSTRAYA POCHTA™ points, which operate with the currency of the transfer.
The maximum size of a transfer is RUB 15 000. The total value of transfers from one sender can be no more than RUR 150 000 per day.
The transfer fee within Russia is 1.5% of the amount, but not less than RUB 150, for transfers from Russia to neighboring countries the fee is 2%, but not less than RUB 150.
