SWIFT Module 7.1 SP10.July 2020 | Package Services | WmFIN Package Services | wm.fin.sepa Folder | wm.fin.sepa:getAvailablePaymentChannels
This service identifies the available payment channels for a BIC code, as follows:
1. Splits the BIC into a BIC code (the first 8 characters) and a branch code (characters 9 to 11). If the branch code is empty, substitutes it with XXX.
2. Searches the data file with the BIC code, branch code, service level (for example, SEPA), and scheme instrument.
3. If no record is found for a specific branch code, then repeats the search with XXX in the branch code.
4. The search may return multiple rows if the counterpart bank is reachable through multiple payment channels.
*The PaymentChannelID field in each retrieved record provides the list of possible payment channels.
*The ValidFrom and ValidTo date fields may restrict the validity of the entries.
If no record is found, you must investigate manually to validate that the counterpart bank is ready to accept SEPA payment instructions, and determine the payment channels through which you can reach the bank.
If no available payment channels are found, the service returns the message: “No Available Payment Channel found.”
