Standing orders and direct debits can be set up for the following:

Who can set up a standing order?

This option is available to all customers holders of current, giro or foreign currency accounts with OTP banka, as well as signatories to their accounts. You can set up a standing order to pay someone else's bills (e.g. radio or TV licence or phone bills).

 

Advantages of a standing order

In addition to settling of various obligations and paying utility bills you might have, you can also use a standing order to commit yourself to saving. By setting up a Scheduled Savings or a Children’s Scheduled Savings account in OTP banka, the amounts you wish to set aside can be earmarked for a certain purpose, e.g. skiing, travelling, children’s education… The standing order will help you in a way that the amount intended for that purpose will be transferred to your savings account automatically, so you will be committed to savings. It is worth a try, especially when you know that the entire process is free of charge.

 

Date and manner of executing a standing order

The date of executing of the standing order is defined in the agreement. 
For your standing order to be executed in full, you must make sure there are sufficient funds on your account at the due date, which includes your authorised overdraft. Otherwise, the Bank will not be able to execute such standing order, and you will have to make separate arrangement by yourself. 
A standing order for loan repayment is executed in full or partially, debiting your account up to the authorised overdraft limit. Under any standing order for loan repayment that is not executed on the due date, or is executed only partially, execution attempts will continue until complete settlement.
