  • One-time: if you select this option you will then have to choose one of the following three types:
    • Now: if you want to carry out a single transfer right away.
    • Same-day: These transfers are faster than regular ones, and they also allow the transfer to be credited into a recipient account at another financial institution. This option is available if performed on business days (Monday-Friday, except for holidays) before 2:00 p.m. and the transfer is within the SEPA area (the 28 EU countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, and Switzerland).
    • Later: this option lets you schedule your one-time transfer by selecting the sending date.

    • Frequency: you can select your frequency as:
      • Monthly
      • Quarterly.
      • Annual.
      • Others: weekly, bi-weekly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or half-yearly.
    • Start date for payments: you will have to select the date on which you want the transfers to begin.
    • End date for payments: you also have the option of specifying when you want the transfers to stop, although to do this you will have to select one of the following three options:
      • Indefinite: The transfer will be carried out as long as you have not changed this option.
      • Select date: you must enter the end date for the transfers.
      • Number of payments: if you prefer, you can specify the number of transfers to be made from your account instead of an end date.
  • Finally, you will have to enter a code in order to confirm the operation, which you will receive via an SMS message.

So much if is punctual as though is periodical, reminded that the customer can carry out these transfers from anywhere and provided that it needs, good from or through BBVA's app.
