is correct, periodic transfers do not yet go directly to ABN
Yes, as a rule, all payments made to the ECB on working days before 14:30 are usually visible on bunq in the same day on the ECB's incoming systems just after 15: 00h and bunq tries to pay all that payment on the the same time to be credited to all bunq customers.
Samzoiets I know the story of AccesOnline, my bookkeeper also works with that, so it is too bad that when he plans to install payments from ABN. to my bunq that are not instant, although, when I search for Insights on the ABN site (articles from ABN), I will be one of 2017 when the initiative of the Dutch Instant Scheme was announced , in which ABN clearly states, under the header Pay with speed of WhatsApp message :
The introduction of Instant Payments should ensure that payments are made as quickly and simply as sending a WhatsApp message. "All transactions are settled in real time and there is no maximum amount in the Netherlands - in contrast to Europe, where a maximum of EUR 15,000.00 will be applied. This applies not only to consumer payments, but also to business transactions, payments to suppliers and the payment of salaries ", says Sandra Peute, product manager of Transaction Banking at ABN AMRO. "Instant Payments offers the possibility to better manage payment flows and prevent cash flow problems."
So if I read this way it seems that ABN, at least in 2017 when this Insight was written, does intend to bring their batch system to Instant. Whether that intention is still there, I have asked ABN on Twitter for clarification, and I hope that this means that immediately for SCT INST. is chosen so that it works with all banks in Europe.
