What is an Inward Telegraphic Transfer (TT)?
An Inward Telegraphic Transfer (also known as an “Inward Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to your account from an overseas remitter. In most cases a TT is the quickest way to receive funds from abroad (a TT will normally take two-to-three business days to be credited to your account, although this can never be guaranteed).
How does it work?
The remitter should send the funds in their own currency, and Western Union Business Solutions will convert them into Australian Dollars before forwarding to People’s Choice for credit to your account. Please refer to the online form for the list of available currencies.
Why should I ask my sender to send money via this service?
To receive money to my account please follow the steps below.
- present these instructions to their bank when sending the payment to you
- deposit the amount into the dedicated account as stated in the instructions in local currency and not in AUD
- instruct bank teller to include the “Payment Notes” in the bank’s reference field as specified in the PDF deposit instructions For more detailed information please refer to the Telegraphic Transfer Request page.
