Stupid question for people who know about banks / online payments

27 posts in this topic

I have to pay 10g for a holiday

I currently have 9800 expendable dough

I have been informed by the travel agent that the payment takes 5 days to clear

I get paid in two days

if I ring up now and say try to pay the 10g, given that I am paid in two days, will the payment go through, and then clear once I'm paid?

or will it get rejected as at the moment there isn't actually 10 grand in the account (this seems the logical outcome but I have been told otherwise)

Any one know?

I used to do this with paypal, pay 400 quid for suttin with no money in my account knowing I'll get a cash injection 2 days later, and it was always bless so I would say yeah, but can also depend on who you bank with.

Nah it won't

The money might not be taken for 5 days but it has to be present in the account for the transaction to go through

Gonna have to find a couple bills or wait till payday

Like Profit said, you won't be able to as they freeze the money so it has to be available

It only works with PayPal because they work on a 2-3 day basis because they're bank transfers.

I'm assuming this payment is by bank transfer, or it really is a stupid question...

No it wouldnt go through, like you said you dont have 10k in your account. The bank "earmarks" the 10k ready for the retailer to collect

^Yeah I assumed

It is a bank transfer though, I assumed I had to have it as it gets moved to another account before it clears

Cheers all
