Sberbank and Tinkoff Bank are testing the system of transfers between cards of banks by a mobile phone customer. This is with reference to sources reported by family-owned Demyan Kudryavtsev, the newspaper “Vedomosti”.
Now these operations are available from both banks, but to send money by phone number is possible only within each of them. Tinkoff Bank is allowed to do the translation number to the clients of other banks, but in this case, the recipient must enter the card number, the link that comes via SMS.
Thus, Tinkoff Bank could be the first Bank that the savings Bank has let the system cards. Last year it accounted for about 65 per cent of all remittances, according to “Vedomosti”.
It is reported that transfers between the two entities “are unlikely to be free.” Counterparty one of the parties suggested that the customers will pay for the service about one percent of the amount transferred. The press service of the banks declined to comment.
