Transaction execution

You can access the Internet bank 7 days a week and 24 hours a day.

Whether or not it is a banking day, we immediately execute:

  • prompt transfers between OTP bank cards,
  • motorway toll payment, and
  • top-up of mobile phone cards.

You can access any time:

  • your account history,
  • the turnover data, and
  • in the case of term deposits and corporate accounts, the queuing items.

The credit transfers submitted on banking days are executed on the same day during the opening hours. If you initiate a credit transfer outside the opening hours, it will be executed on the next working day.

Opening hours: for intrabank credit transfers, until 7 p.m. on working days.If you make an interbank credit transfer you have to initiate your order on working days until 4:30 p.m. for same day execution.

If you place your deposit outside opening hours, it will be fulfilled on the next banking day, applying the interest rate prevailing on that day. Thus in this case it may happen that the effective interest rate differs from the one you saw upon submitting the order.

Credit transfer

If the amount that you wish to transfer exceeds the daily limit you had specified for the Internet channel, we are not in the position to execute the transaction. If you wish to change the daily limit:

  • visit any of our branches, or
  • if you have a contract for OTPdirekt call centre services, call +36 (1/20/30/70) 3 666 666.

If you are a commercial banking customer, you can initiate the limit amendment only in person in your home branch.

You can transfer funds from an OTP bank card to another OTP bank card immediately, even during the night or weekend. You can initiate such transaction through the Internet bank in the Bank account / Credit transfers / 7*24 hours, Prompt transfer between OTP bank cards menu item.

You may enquire about, modify or cancel the orders awaiting execution

  • through the Internet bank, in the Bank account / Credit transfers / Maintenance of value dated and standing orders menu item, or
  • via the call centre service at +36 (1/20/30/70) 3 666 666, or
  • in any of our branches.

In the Internet bank you can check your order in the Bank account / Enquiries / Checking, approving, signing transactions menu item.

If the status of your order is:

  • pending or awaiting processing, it will be executed on the next banking day at start of day. Before your order is executed you can cancel it any time;
  • awaiting approval, then your order has been captured, but it will be executed only if you approve it within 1 hour from the capturing. You can approve your order with the code sent in SMS by Mobile Signature, or by scanning the QR code if you have registered for SmartBank;
  • executed, then your order has been processed. Your order will be executed on the day that you have specified, taking into account the opening hours;
  • rejected during processing, then it was rejected during processing;
  • rejected, then you have failed to approve the transaction within the applicable time frame;
  • cancelled, then you have cancelled the transaction prior to execution;
  • awaiting signature, then, as it is an order placed by a commercial banking customer, a signature of minimum 10 scores is necessary for the execution, which has to be provided within 24 hours.

We will always notify you in a Mailbox message when your stored order has been executed or rejected. You can check the result of the orders in the Bank account / Enquiries / Account history menu item and on the account statement as well.

With the templates you can save the details of your frequent transactions, thus you can perform them faster. For example, if you make payments to the same person or company regularly, you can save it as a template. In this way you do not need to fill in the beneficiary's name and bank account number every time.

If you need a confirmation of a specific transaction (e.g. that the payment has been executed), use the "Save transaction" button after completing the transaction.

Technical issues

For using the Internet bank does not require any special browser settings. For more information you can read the technical information.

If you perform no transactions in the Internet bank for a longer period after logging in, you will be logged out for security reasons. This is to prevent unauthorised persons from using your account. If you wish to continue using the Internet bank, you will have to log in again.

  1. We recommend that if you do not regularly switch your phone off and on again, and then do it now.
  2. If you still do not receive the SMS, call our customer service at +36 (1/20/30/70) 3 666 666.
  3. If our call centre staff confirms that the bank did send the SMS, then call the customer service of your mobile provider.

If you have specified in the settings that the Internet bank should require a password for each transaction:

  1. you have to submit the order (e.g. credit transfer),
  2. enter your password,
  3. and only then will we send you the SMS.

If you use Mobile Signature, we can only execute the transaction if you:

  • enter the code received in SMS at the bottom of the screen confirming successful processing or in the Checking, approving, signing transactions menu item, or
  • approve the transaction with a QR code, if you are a registered SmartBank user.

If you are a commercial banking customer, you also have to add signatures of an appropriate score to the orders in the Bank account / Enquiries / Checking, approving, signing transactions menu item. At present, the execution of orders requires 10 scores. If this is not performed within 24 hours, the order will be cancelled.

In mobile browsers you will see an automatically mobile optimised Internet banking interface, which offers limited services. If you wish to use the full Internet banking functionality on your mobile phone, click on the "full functionality view" link.

Probably a technical problem occurred in the banking system. Wait a few minutes and try to log in again. If your login attempt fails several times, please contact our customer service at +36 (1/20/30/70) 3 666 666!

Service-related questions

We apply state-of-the-art information security technology. Data traffic is encrypted by 128-byte keys. Through approval by Mobile Signature (SMS or QR code, if you are a registered SmartBank user), in addition to the private password known only to you, a one-time code offers a second level of security, protecting login and the initiation of transactions.

For your security, please don’t forget to do the following:

  • Set the highest data security level in your browser.
  • Use the Mobile Signature service. Upon login and transaction initiation, we will send you a one-time identification number in SMS, which you can use for approving the transaction. You can only use each identification number once.
    If you also use the SmartBank mobile application, we display a QR code in the interface instead of sending an SMS. You have to scan the code with the SmartBank application in order to approve the transaction.

Commercial banking customers are also required to add a signature of an appropriate value (10 scores in total), in addition to applying the Mobile Signature, for the transaction to be executed.

Please check out our security page, where you will find additional useful information.

Yes, it is possible to use it more simply, with fewer SMS messages:

  1. Go to the Settings menu in the Internet bank.
  2. Select the Mobile Signature settings menu item.
  3. Set the "Transaction confirmation – Simplified" option.

After this, if you initiate a transaction by using a saved template, you will receive no SMS for the approval. If you are a retail customer, you will not receive an SMS for transactions between your own accounts managed in the Internet bank.

If you wish to use the Internet bank in an even simpler manner, register for the SmartBank mobile application, through which you can use QR code-based Mobile Signature. This enables you to approve login and transactions by scanning the QR code instead of SMS.

Some of the transactions are not posted immediately, only a few days later. Purchases made by bank cards are a typical example. The booked balance does not include the transactions "in transit", while the available balance includes all transactions. The available balance is the amount that you can actually use.

You may enquire about your account statements as from 2011.
If you do not find an account statement,

  • you may be enquiring about a period for which the statement has not been generated yet, or
  • if you are a commercial banking customer, the authentic e-statement might not have been generated yet for the period you are enquiring about.
