How are standard domestic payments routed?


Payments entered via the 'Standard Domestic' option will always be routed through the Faster Payments system.

Your payment will be sent on the date you requested so long as:

  • The beneficiary sorting code can accept Faster Payments
  • The amount of the payment is within the service limits of £1 million

The value you enter for the ‘Date payment to arrive’ will determine if an Immediate, Next Day, or Future Dated Faster Payment is sent. Each of these has its own tariff which you can check by selecting 'View Notification' from the left hand menu.

Faster payments is a near real time system. A payment will be received by the beneficiary almost immediately after leaving your account, though sometimes it may take two hours.

Note - the beneficiary's bank may not make funds available to the beneficiary on this date.

If a payment is over £1 million it will need to be made as a CHAPS.

You can't make BACS payments through Bankline. But you can future date faster payments, which is cheaper than sending an immediate faster payment or a CHAPS payment.
