From one account to another Post account? To another Swiss account? To another account elsewhere in the world? Come on, give us a clue, or just call the Post and ask them!

What do you mean "come on" how the hell do we know that? You asked (but only in the title) how long does it take to transfer from 2 Post accounts, not where to.

Answer (in my experience), send from one Post account today and it'll be in the other Post account Friday. Unless you pay extra for express when it should be there tomorrow.

You're welcome.

Re: How long does it take to transfer money from two postfinace accounts

What the what?! Sometimes I do appreciate a bit of good old fashioned laziness, but this might be taking it a step too far.

Using all of my powers of inference, is it safe to assume you're asking about transfering funds between two post accounts? If so, I believe it takes approximately 2 business days.

If you're asking anything other than above, then more information is definitely needed.

The courtesy of a please or thanks wouldn't go amiss either...

Nonsense.

It takes seconds or at most minutes, PF-PF or UBS-UBS.

UBS-PF arrives next morning.

This is my experience shifting money between various accounts that my wife and I have.

That's strange, when I send money, the first available booking day is always the next business day. Then the recipient account makes the funds available the day after that. But perhaps I've missed a step which speeds up the process? Or... I usually do all of that in the evenings after work. Maybe relevant?

Possibly between connected accounts? I know if I transfer from my Sterling to CHF Post account it's pretty instant, but I sent funds to another Post account last week and I'm pretty sure it wasn't in their account the next day.

No, totally separate.

Until we switched medical providers, I was constantly shift money from my wife's UBS account (where she'd get the back payments) to my PF (as I pay the bills), and it was always in my PF the next day.

Re: How long does it take to transfer money from two postfinace accounts

Sometimes it is too quick!
We keep a certain amount in one 'current account' for day to day expenses and it is topped up from another account or if the sum in the current account excedes the limit, the excess is moved in the other direction. This happens regularly, once a month, without any special action on our part. Works fine. Until recently Mr. Longbyt deliberately moved extra funds to the current account to pay the tax bill and before the transaction went through the clever arrangement had already sent the 'excess cash' back where it came from.

UBS e-banking the default date is next business day unless you specify otherwise. So yes, in PF next day.

Re: How long does it take to transfer money from two postfinace accounts

Transferring between two accounts under the same name (eg current to savings), immediately. Anything else, next working day, in my experience.

And enough of the "come on". Cheeky twat.
