It looks like the two banks do have different security processes, Filippos. Alpha doesn't require me to use the OTC when I log on but it does have the provision to use it. It is my choice. However, if I don't use the OTC when I log onto the account it asks for the OTC as soon as I click on a specific payment type, e.g. DEI, OTE etc. It doesn't matter whether it is a new payment code or one that I have saved since I can't get that far without using the OTC.

I tried to pay for a friend this morning (Piraeus Bank website) as they are unable to get to a bank to do it.
Using English characters as I usually do, I attempted to enter `XNP ....' but it would not accept the letter `P', I even tried cutting and pasting one, but it still wouldn't take it.
I tried loads of other letters in frustration, and after typing a random selection of characters after `XN', I was able to enter a `P'.
Went back and deleted the unwanted bits to leave just the XNP, added the numbers, and it worked fine :o

Those of us living in the Rethymno area have similar problems, since our number plates start with the letter 'P' - which is, of course, the Greek letter rho. Try typing in a capital 'R' and the system will miraculously print a 'P'.

... Just shows how lucky we are in the far east, where the number plate prefix is AN :wink:

Maybe the system is encountering overload problems caused by the number of people leaving payment as late as possible.

......... which could be avoided of course if the requirement to pay could be staggered over the year (as in say UK) .

That way of course, the country would lose some revenue - buy a car in November and pay a whole year's tax for that year , then another year's tax for the coming year in December. Still, it would spread the pressure.
Yesterday today was tomorrow. Don't dilly dally!
