Excellent

Fast, simple, efficient, useful.

Only accepts Internet Explorer, and not widely use...

Although I believe that Natwest Fastpay is probably the best value for money online payment service, it could do with some improvement. The ideal user of Natwest Fastpay is someone who has to send their mate a tenner, or even (and I use this quite often) transferring money between different bank...

“A must for eBayers!!!”

published 30/06/2003

Instant payment for goods, Low fees

Limit to amount you can load and send

I use eBay on a regular basis and find paying via online methods not only is easier but means you get your goods quicker, instead of waiting for a cheque to clear. Now I know a lot of people aren’t happy with fees when using online payments, but when you put it in context is actually the same as...

Super

Cheap, fixed price

Initial fee, service now closed (June 2005)

I've been transferring money OnLine for a few months now, but was wary of FastPay as unlike other IMAs (Internet Merchant Accounts) the sender of the money is charged, not the recipient. Anyway, I had a customer that wanted me to send me money, advising me that it cost the sender just 20p so I...

Will not always be free.

I signed up to fastpay a few weeks ago when the service was just getting off the ground and have to say that it has been very handy for me so far. As someone who uses auction sites a lot it has been very convenient in arranging payment of money. I also use it to pay small bills to people when I...

Speed, Exchange Rates & Cost

Only £3000 in a day.

Well, Barclays has also launced an Online Money Transfer service to India and it is pretty good as compared to the other money transfer operators which offer similar service. Here is what I fond out after using the service. - Fully Online Money transfer - Best exchange rates in the market...

I signed up to the FastPay system when I came across it on a freebie site to get some freebies but soon found myself using it quite often. (£1,000 off food at various restaurants across the UK per person.) It allows you to transfer money to other people on the scheme through their e-mail or...

Free

Free 'til September

I also have had experience with fastpay.com (provided by natwest) but contrary to what Alex stated, It is only free 'til september - which is a real shame as I enjoy using the service and benefit by saving time, but the administration costs must be pressuring. Still... it will only cost 20p to...

“Altogether good service”

published 24/02/2011

quick and easy to use

uncompetitve exchange rates

A good service, I did find better alternatives though when I compared the service against other money transfer providers at www.comparecurrency.co.uk/international-payments. The money arrived quickly but I did find far better ways of transferring money. Using a money transfer brokerage as my...

“Easy”

Free

Won't Be Free

This is one of the most easiest accounts I have ever had. It helps me pay for my bills and my online purchases. I have not had it long, so I have not benefited from all the benefits it says it will give me. As there are so many features, I havn't had enough time to use them all. I have paid on...
