Move Money is a single place for managing all your payments and transfers from your HSBC US accounts.
All payments and transfers can be started by selecting the Move money icon within the 'Transaction History' page or via the My HSBC tab at the top of the screen and selecting from the Move money menu.
You can move money between your accounts (both international and United States) or make payments to other people or pay your bills. You also have the option to setup payees, save them for future payments and pay up to 5 bill payees in a single location.
For eligible move money options, you can choose for the transaction to happen immediately, on a future date and set up regular payments between your accounts or to someone else.
For transfers between your checking and saving accounts in your own country and in the same currency, you can also use Quick Transfer on your My Banking page.
