The Online ATM Payment of Bills is a service provided by SIBS, the entity that regulates and manages the service. This service gives a company that subscribes it, the possibility of providing their clients with a way to pay their bills for services provided by the company through the Multibanco network.
How it works
Briefly, the main steps to implement the service are the followings:
- Signing a Contract with Millennium bcp;
- Filling in the SIBS forms;
- The bank delivers to the Company the SIBS Manual with the description and planning of the payment of services/purchases;
- Delivery to the Company of the Manual of the SIBS Services Portal.
The way selected by the Company to validate the payment references determines the way the same are presented for payment: by construction of the reference with the addition of 2 check digits or by the remittance to the SIBS of a file detailing the referen.
The Subscribing Company must include the following data in the bills for payment in Euros it sends to its Clients:
A number with 5 digits supplied by SIBS and higher than 10,000 that identifies the Company;
A number with 9 digits, created by the Subscribing Company that enables it to unequivocally identify the client and the payment made;
Amount that cannot exceed € 100,000.00 rounded to cents of Euro to be paid by the Client of the Subscribing Company.
Daily and after clearing, SIBS sends to the Bank the total of payments made using the Multibanco Network for credit into the account of the Subscribing Company, after taking the Bank's fee and respective VAT.
After clearing, (usually after 00.00 - midnight) the SIBS Portal makes available to the Company a file with all the payments made using the Multibanco Network. If the Client so wishes, it may be notified in Real Time on the payments made.
Millennium bcp issues a monthly statement describing the total amounts paid and the respective bank fees and VAT debited daily for the provision of the service.
