Payments in Real Time


Transactions are effectively liquidated at the very moment they are processed. Therefore, creditors received the amounts transferred to their accounts also in real time, or otherwise a confirmation of their deduction the following day.


Transfers to Third Parties


SINPE clients may do cash transfers in real time from their financial entity to a "cuenta cliente" in another entity.


Debiting in Real Time


Debiting operations may be ordered from a given financial entity, to be charged to a "Cuenta Cliente" in another entity, provided that the account has been previously authorized for direct debiting operations by its owner. Amounts are debited in real time, while funds are credited the next day.


Interbank Cash Transfers


Funds are transferred in real time between accounts that SINPE members keep with BCCR.
