Throughout this document, the term 'Ordering Customer' refers to either an Ordering Customer, or a Payor or Agent acting on behalf of the Ordering Customer; likewise the term 'Beneficiary' refers to either a Beneficiary, or a Payee or Agent acting on behalf of the Beneficiary.


1.2. Field of Application

1.3. Principles

A Payment Order may cover the financial settlement of one or more commercial trade transactions, such as invoices, credit notes, debit notes, etc. It is not intended for use in securities trading.

The Ordered Bank may need a confirmation/authorization to be able to process the Payment Order Message, if the payment order(s) is (are) sent by a third party.
