Tinkoff now has instant ruble transfers via the Fast Payment System (FPS) to Freedom Finance of Kazakhstan. The operations are carried out without commission.
Transfers are available by phone number, in the menu with a list of banks you need to select “Freedom Bank”.
In addition, Tinkoff transfers dollars directly through the SWIFT system to Kazakhstan’s Freedom. The commission for such operations is 1%, the minimum transfer amount is $30.
Earlier, the Russian bank began to inform its clients about the new option. The organization offered to open a card at Freedom Finance. The service was said to be available to premium customers only.
However, Freedom Finance denied the existence of such a possibility. The credit institution stated that it does not provide remote card opening services to non-residents of Kazakhstan.
Upd: Users on social media report that commission-free transfer is not available to everyone. Some clients are informed that the commission is 1%, but not less than 390 rubles.
