  1. Even if the Bank accepts a money transfer request, there may be cases where the receiver is unable to receive payment at any part of or all of the Payment Center located in the payout country or where the relevant amount cannot be credited to the Receiver's Bank Account due to transactional restrictions prescribed by the Alliance Partner, the Payment Center or the Receiver's Bank.
  2. If the Credit-to-Account Method is taken, the crediting to a bank account will be conducted in the payout currency. In addition, a separate procedure may be required in some Payout Countries.
  3. ◆In the case where the Credit-to-Account Method is taken in China, if the receiver is receiving funds in the Receiver's Bank Account for the first time, the receiver must call the Alliance Partner. In such case, it may take longer than usual for the crediting to the Receiver's Bank Account to be completed, because the aforementioned procedure must be completed first.
  4. If there is an error in the transfer details, such as in the account number of the Receiver's Bank Account number, the money could be credited to the wrong account. Therefore, please always check the transfer details to ensure they are accurate. In particular, if the Credit-to-Account Method is taken in the Philippines, only the account number is checked to ensure that it matches the Receiver's Bank Account designated by the customer, and no steps are taken to ensure that the account holder matches the name of the receiver. We therefore encourage you to pay special attention when registering the account number of the Receiver's Bank Account.
  5. The customer must submit the Bank's prescribed transfer reversal request form to carry out a reversal. When submitting said form, the Bank may require the customer to submit the Bank's prescribed identity verification documents or provide a guarantor. In addition, there may be cases where it takes a considerable period of time to confirm with the Alliance Partner whether or not such reversal can be conducted.
