Understanding the ordering process

Find out how to place your order, track your order and request high priority or emergency handling.

Important information about your order

Important information:

  • Specify below the LT and the related live and/or test and training BIC and, if you wish to change its default value, the FIN window size.

  • FIN window size changes are reserved to high volume users and are subject to authorisation from SWIFT.

  • The window size field displays the default window size defined on the SWIFT network. The default value is 12.

  • The newly requested LT must have the same window size has the current LTs, otherwise another form must be used to request a higher window size (FIN, window size change)

Alliance Access:

  • Default FIN window size for Alliance Access is 10.

  • This can be changed to 12 through the System Management Application without changes on the SWIFT Network.

Alliance Entry:

  • Default FIN window size for Alliance Entry is 10.

  • Alliance Entry does not support the usage of multiple LTs.

  • Consult your interface documentation before requesting additional LTs.
