Halifax authorisation needed before transfer of funds ?!?!?!?!?!


Novice Member
Quick question, could anyone tell me if it is normal for the Halifax that when u want to transfer money between two peoples accounts both held by the Halifax to have to wait for authorisation from them before being able to send the funds??

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

If it is the first time you've set up that payment instruction, you do have to wait for them to authorise and activate it. It shouldn't take longer than overnight after which time you'll be able to transfer money. You'll likely get a letter confirming the payment instruction as well over the next few days.

Hope this helps.
