לטובת מי שנמצא ב-IB ולא מקושר דרך ביטריידר (אני היחיד?) ביררתי את הנושא:
me: hi, I understand that IB recently opened an account in citybank Israel, allowing to make local deposts in ILS to that account instead of converting to USD and making an international swift transfer
me: I would like to use that deposit method, could you update me on the account details for such a transfer and withdraw ?
Ray V: In order to receive instructions you must submit a deposit notification in your account. This would be submitted under Funding -> Fund Transfers -> Transaction Type/Choose One -> Deposits -> Currency and choose “Wire” as the Method.
After you have entered the info and click on the “Save and Continue” button our system will provide you with the routing information.
me: ok, and will the same work for a withdraw ?
Ray V: You would click on "Withdraw" when you decide to take funds out.
me: when I start a withdraw it ask for an IBAN and swift code
me: which means this is an international transfer and not a local one
me: I want to make sure I make a local transfer to avoid extra fees
Ray V: Those codes are still required for a withdrawal.
me: my question is - as far as my bank is concerned, will I receive the ILS funds via the local city bank branch in Israel, or will I receive the ILS funds from the NY bank?
Ray V: Through Citibank branch in Israel,
me: ok, and can you please tell me which fees are involved on IB side when depositing and making a withdraw?
Ray V: We do not charge for deposits.
Ray V: The first withdrawal each month is free.
כמו כן ביצעתי הפקדה סמלית בשקלים לסניף הישראלי, אעדכן.
האפשרות של להעביר ש"ח, להמיר לדולר, ולשלוח חזרה (וההפך) עם קרוב לאפס עמלות הלוך ושוב זה פנומנלי.
