The commission on utilities payments to United Information-Computing Centers, Moscow, and to Mosenergosbyt (Moscow, Zelenograd) is 1% of the transaction amount, while transactions with other counterparties are free of charge.
Also, Raiffeisenbank cardholders will now be able to make money transfers from card to card via ATMs of Raiffeisenbank branches in Moscow and the Moscow Region. It’s very simple to transfer money from one card to another via Raiffeisen ATM. Upon inserting the card from which account the money will be transferred in the ATM, the customer must then dial a PIN code and follow the onscreen instructions. All parameters of the operation, including the transfer fee, will be reflected on the screen and on the check.
«Within a month we plan to make these services accessible to all ATMs in Raiffeisenbank Moscow offices, and by the end of the first quarter of 2012 these services will be available at all other Raiffeisenbank ATMs in Russia. We are confident that these services will be in demand among our customers, especially instant transfers from one Raiffeisenbank card to another. This is another step towards quick management of your funds in real time, which is one of our priorities,» said Andrey Stepanenko, member of the Board of ZAO Raiffeisenbank and Head of Retail Private Individuals Directorate.
