Same-day cleared payments
If you need to make an urgent, high-value payment to another bank ask about same-day cleared payments.
Key features and benefits
Useful if you need to make an urgent payment to a non-Kiwibank account.
The money will land in the account you're transferring to within an hour.
Same-day cleared payments can't be reversed.
How it works
Funds appear in the bank account of the person you’re paying within 60 minutes (usually less) from the time funds come out of your bank account. Normally, when you make a payment to another bank, the bank you're sending to may only process incoming payments every few hours or overnight.
A $25 fee applies when you make a same-day cleared payment.
You can ask the receiving bank to send an email to the payee to let them know when the funds have been credited to their account, so they know the money has arrived and can be used.

Urgent payments between Kiwibank accounts
If you want to urgently pay funds from one Kiwibank account to another, we recommend that you use a one-off payment via internet banking instead, as these transfers happen instantly.
