Slow Bank transfers?

Is anyone else finding bank transfer speeds have dropped off the Earth?

I know at the start of the year they were painfully slow. And then during the last few months. They were moving into my account with half an hour.

The last 3 deposits though, have been going across into the next day :man_shrugging::dizzy_face:

I couldn’t quite find the answer in the search section; Are transfers manually approved before moving over?

Getting pretty frustrated with it.

Any thoughts would be highly appreciated.
Thanks :slight_smile:

Which bank was the deposit made from? Other users transferring from the same bank might be able to comment.

I made a deposit from Barclays at 08.20 today and FT had it by 10.00.

Same bank I’ve always had connected. Halifax on faster payments. As mentioned, transfers were under 30 minutes most recently. Now seems to have gone back to the “good ole days” :dizzy_face::rofl:

Mine have never been very fast (Santander), but that’s why it’s worth having some spare in FT ready to go (not like you’re getting any interest on it anyway!)

Yea I really hope they can put instant deposits in soon the current process is pretty tedious and takes a long time to get your money

Transfers I make from my Co-Op current account don’t follow any pattern so I assume it’s making its way through in a queue. If I make a transfer during the night it’s in FT fairly soon after open but transfers during the day can take a couple of hours. I’ve never had to wait longer than (I think) 2.5 hours.
