FAQs Global Payment

In our system, we don’t charge fee on cover rate, and there is no reason for bank to charge fee on cover rate. The reason that cover rate fee is shown on the FX Deal History log is because the cover rate is attached to the pricing templates that consists of fee amount. You have a good catch. Maybe it should not be shown it there. You can go to see your customer profile, under Foreign Exchange setting, you will see the place to set cover rate template.

Yes, receiving customer and beneficiary name is the same person.

The bank which receives Swift message does not need to have TSG’s platform. The bank use Swift application to send Swift message, and they just generate the swift message in our system, so they can send the swift message through the Swift application to the other bank without needing to key the swift message manually.

“Cash Trade cutoff time” is the time of the day that Cash Trade can no longer apply or the deal cannot be settled on the same day. If the customer book Cash trade beyond that time, the value date of the deal will be the next day.

“Account alias” is the number that banker set up to represent the real account number. If someone sends a payment to that number instead of your real account, the payment will still go to your account. “Account alias” is usually created for Australia since the format of account number is confusing. Some people put BSB before account number and some put account number before BSB. Thus, it is good to create an alias so that whether BSB is put before or after, the money still goes to the right account.

When customer order a big amount in FX Deal, the bank will charge smaller fee/ no fee and smaller spread since the bank wants to encourage customer to order in big amount, which make the bank earn more money. For the time allowed to book the deal for the quoted rate, it is often shorter when the amount is bigger since the rate is changing all the time, so the longer the time the bank provides, the more risk the bank has.

auto generated is where the system saves (in some currencies) the routing from payments set out. It is building its own database.

Payment Profitability Report is the report of all payments and fee from each payment which is generated based on value date of the payment.

Payment Profitability Report‐Processed Date is the same as Payment Profitability Report, but it is generated based on the date that the payment is created.

Payment Profitability Report-Processed Date by BSB is the same as Payment Profitability Report-Processed Date. The difference is that banker will be able to generate Payment Profitability Report-Processed Date by each account representative or multiple account representatives.

Although bank does not allow customer to book Spot deal on their own, but under customer profile in foreign exchange setting, the pricing template is set for each type of deal.

The banker and or the customer can click on the view link under action in the documents tab.

That is just the status of LC application. It tells the user what stage of LC application they are in now. This phrase tells user that they are in Entry stage, and this LC application has not been submitted to bank for review yet.

And if we give the access right to be able to Submit LC only, the File shows up only Release to Entry Review. Moreover, if we give access right to both, both also show up in the File. Their benefit is to move LC to Entry Review step.

No, after clicking on “General Swift File” function, there is a file downloaded. Banker will use this swift message file to send to Advising bank. If the LC is advised by the advising, the banker needs to mark it as advised.
