The table above is a guide only and does not account for timezone variances or international payouts where available. For more detail on a particular scheme's timings, please click on the applicable scheme name in the table.
Betalingsservice: 'M' refers to the month the customer is being charged in. 'WD' refers to working (business) days.
* The timings specified assume the customer has an active Direct Debit mandate. If they do not, the process will take an additional working day to allow for their mandate to be set up once they've completed the online authorisation form.
