Bankline charges for Faster Payments worth it?

July 27, 2020

Natwest Bankline charges £2.50 per same-day Faster Payment. The next cheaper option is to schedule next-day payments which they charge £0.45 per line for. Same-day payments can be really useful but one has to be aware of the bank charges, and if it’s worth it?

Why same-day payments?

Any business they would benefit from immediate payment times including some of the use-case below.

Weekly wages: If you are a company who pays weekly wages, you only have a short timeframe to collect and finalise timesheets until Thursday or Friday and pay out immediately.

Daily pay runs: If you run daily pay runs, and your customers (payees) rely on receiving payments immediately

Because it’s 2020: It feels more in-line with the modern fast moving world vs waiting a few days to have your payments sent.

Bankline charges for Faster Payments

You’d need to become a Bankline customer to access higher limits including the option to make multiple payments in one go.

Becoming a Bankline customer comes with a new set of bank charges for your business. You get charged on a per month basis. Bankline charges per line currently are:

Payment type Bankline charge
Same day Faster Payment £2.50
Next day/future dated Faster Payment £0.45
CHAPS payment (above £250,000) £20

When having to make 100's of payments per month this can become expensive quickly.
