File transfer on OP eServices for small corporate and institutional customers at op.fi?

What is File transfer at op.fi all about?

Your company can manage its payment transactions through File transfer when your financial management system does not support the use of Web Services.

How can I activate File transfer?

You can activate it at your own OP cooperative bank. File transfer can be used by your company’s users to whom have been given the related right at the bank.

What should I do if sending a file fails?

This may be caused by a number of reasons:

  • File size: You can simultaneously send a maximum of 10 files. The maximum size of several files to be sent is 10 megabytes.
  • File format: Check whether the file you have sent is in the format that you had selected for sending.

Error message:

“Failed to send the file.
Sending the following files failed XXXX.
Correct the file and send it again.
The maximum permitted size of e-invoices is 9,765 kilobytes”

The error message shown is a standard message displayed irrespective of the error. A more detailed description of the error can be found in the file error reply shown on the File transfer front page after the invalid sending.

In what format should I save files on the op.fi service?

Users should ask their ledger specialist what file name and file name extension the ledger software reads and saves the file exactly under that name and its extension as the software reads it.
