U.C.C. 4A-103 (Payment Order; means an instruction of a sender to a receiving bank, transmitted orally, electronically, or in writing, to pay, or to cause another bank to pay, a fixed or determinable amount of money to a beneficiary if: (i) the instruction does not state a condition to payment to the beneficiary other than time of payment; (ii) the receiving bank is to be reimbursed by debiting an account of, or otherwise receiving payment from, the sender; and (iii) the instruction is transmitted by the sender directly to the receiving bank or to an agent, funds-transfer system, or communication system for transmittal to the receiving bank." "Today Payments Gateway", (a fast credit push payment system) electronic bank transfers are not restricted like ACH transactions to amount, or account type, and work with 100% of US checking accounts for any amount. Electronic checks do not fall under NACHA rules or Reg. E.

  • In the case of a purchase and sale, the buyer will instruct it’s bank to debit it’s account in the amount of the purchase price and credit those funds to the account of the seller. The law calls the buyer’s payment instruction to it’s bank a “Payment Order”, everybody else calls it a wire. If the buyer and seller share the same bank, the bank will affect the payment order by means of a “book entry” essentially adjusting it’s internal books and records to reflect the debit to the buyer’s account and corresponding credit to the seller’s account. If the buyer and seller do not share the same bank, the buyer’s bank will have to communicate the payment order to the seller’s bank. The three primary networks over which payment orders are transmitted are: (1) Fedwire, (2) Clearing House Interbank Payment System (CHIPS), and (3) the Society for Worldwide International Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT). In some instances, especially in more complex transactions such as international transactions, a payment order might make short stops at one or more intermediary banks for further processing along it’s way from the buyer’s bank to the seller’s bank.

  • The ability of a sender to recall a wire hinges primarily on whether or not the payment order has been accepted by the receiving bank. The reason for this is that the general rule under 4A is that a cancellation order is effective as long as it is received at a time and in a manner that affords a receiving bank a reasonable opportunity to act on the cancellation order before the receiving bank accepts the order. Put another way, as long as the seller’s bank hasn’t accepted the payment order, chances are good that the buyer can reverse the wire. However, after acceptance by the seller’s bank occurs, the scales tip in favor of the seller; cancellation orders are generally ineffective. The key time for a seller therefore, is the point in time at which it’s bank accepts the payment order.

    The rules regarding acceptance of a payment order are set out in §4A-209. §4A-209 sets out a couple of different events which will trigger acceptance of a payment order. As far as a seller is concerned, by far the most important trigger is set out in §4A-209(b)(1) which basically states that the beneficiary’s bank accepts a payment order when it pays the beneficiary or notifies the beneficiary that it’s account has been credited. Therefore, once a seller or seller’s counsel learns or is notified by it’s bank that funds have been credited to their account, the seller can safely assume that the payment order has been accepted and that therefore, the funds cannot be recalled.

      How Today Payments Gateway works for Real Estate Companies in Sending & Receiving Funds

      Working with two Financial institutions (i.e. the "Sender's" Financial Institution and the "Receiver's" Financial Institution), Good Funds money transfer services engage in two transactions to accommodate the money transfer between the Sender and the Recipient: a funding transaction and a payment transaction.

      Step 1: Funding Transaction

      Today Payments Gateway platform creates a Funding transaction (i.e. Credit Push) to move money from the "Sender's" Originating Financial Institution (the financial institution where the money is currently on deposit); transactions enter the payments systems from the sender�s bank through the "Good Funds Wallet".

      • The amount used to fund the transaction will be the total amount to be sent to the Recipient. Today Payments Gateway fees and any fees charged by the Originating Institution will be charged in a separate transaction.
      • The Sender can fund the transaction using any deposit account at their Bank or Credit Union.
      • The Funding Transaction can be initiated in a number of ways, including at our website's Virtual Terminal, a mobile application, QuickBooks accounting software or a Web-based integrated software.

      Step 2: Payment Transaction

      The Today Payments Gateway platform transfers funds from the Originating Institution, via the "Good Funds Wallet" to the account identified by the Recipient at the Receiving Financial Institution. The Originating and Receiving Institutions must both have the ability to process electronic check transactions, (Good News: 99% of Financial Institutions have these abilities!).
