Online Wire Transfers


Frequently Asked Questions

What is a wire Transfer?

A wire transfer is an electronic payment service for transferring funds by wire through for example, SWIFT, The Federal Reserve Wire Network or the Clearing House Interbank payments Systems.

How do I send an online wire?

To send a wire in Online Banking, you’ll need our Online Wire Transfer Module. Visit your nearest branch to complete an application. Once complete, simply log in to Online Banking and select the Wire Transfer tab under Business Services. Then you can send money to your own accounts, to another individual or business.

How much money can I send with SESLOC Business Online Banking?

For your security, we restrict the amount of money you can send to recipients. Your limits are shown under the Company Policy and User Roles (if different then the business).

What is the cut-off time to send a wire online?

Online wires are typically sent the same business day if it is submitted by 1:00 p.m. PT for domestic and international wires. Otherwise, it will be sent the next business day.

How soon can an international recipient receive the funds from a wire transfer?

If you are transferring funds to an international account, your account will be debited the same day and SESLOC will send the payment out immediately. The beneficiary's bank will generally receive the funds one to two days later. The funds will usually be credited to the beneficiary within two days. However, there are a number of factors which could delay the credit to the beneficiary. These include, but are not limited to: local bank holidays, delays by an intermediary bank or other local conditions. Note, too, that some countries have been designated as slow-to-pay countries. Transfers made to or from a slow-to-pay country may experience delays in crediting the beneficiary's account.

What happens if I submit a wire transfer over the weekend or on a holiday?

SESLOC will process the wire transfer on the next business day following the weekend or holiday.

Can a wire be canceled?

An online wire that has a status of “scheduled” may be canceled. Wires initiated prior to cutoff at 1:00 p.m. during normal business hours generally start processing immediately and cannot be canceled.

Customers may cancel by selecting the “cancel” option within Online Banking under the Online Activity Center or by calling the SESLOC at (805) 543-1816.
