In recent years, electronic transfers have been growing at a rapid pace.
Bank managers agree that the use of electronic banking operations reduces transaction costs, being this the main reason for its growth.
Luis Lara, manager of the Banco Industrial (BI) told Prensalibre.com that the institution expects amount of electronic transactions made by the end of 2011 to exceed those of 2010 when they totaled $1,377 million.
Users continue to prefer traditional operations; bankers maintain that in a short time frame, this tendency will revert itself.
Sigloxxi.com publishes an article in its website: "Among the hundred of the most visited places on the internet, and in just half of the count, only three banks are placed: G&T Continental (46), Industrial (51) and Banrural (60).
Starting April 21, 6 nicaraguan banks will include among its services online money transfers.
The six banks are part of the ACH Unired network, an entity authorized by the Central Bank of Nicaragua to operate in the country. Some banks offer no-cost transfers, while others charge transaction fees ranging between $5 and $20.
