Section 11402

(a)

This section is subject to Sections 11205 and 11207.

(b)

With respect to a payment order issued to the beneficiarys bank, acceptance of the order by the bank obliges the sender to pay the bank the amount of the order, but payment is not due until the payment date of the order.

(c)

This subdivision is subject to subdivision (e) and to Section 11303. With respect to a payment order issued to a receiving bank other than the beneficiarys bank, acceptance of the order by the receiving bank obliges the sender to pay the bank the amount of the senders order. Payment by the sender is not due until the execution date of the senders order. The obligation of that sender to pay its payment order is excused if the funds transfer is not completed by acceptance by the beneficiarys bank of a payment order instructing payment to the beneficiary of that senders payment order.

(d)

If the sender of a payment order pays the order and was not obliged to pay all or part of the amount paid, the bank receiving payment is obliged to refund payment to the extent the sender was not obliged to pay. Except as provided in Sections 11204 and 11304, interest is payable on the refundable amount from the date of payment.

(e)

If a funds transfer is not completed as stated in subdivision (c) and an intermediary bank is obliged to refund payment as stated in subdivision (d) but is unable to do so because it is not permitted by applicable law or because the bank suspends payments, a sender in the funds transfer that executed a payment order in compliance with an instruction, as stated in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 11302, to route the funds transfer through that intermediary bank is entitled to receive or retain payment from the sender of the payment order that it accepted. The first sender in the funds transfer that issued an instruction requiring routing through that intermediary bank is subrogated to the right of the bank that paid the intermediary bank to refund as stated in subdivision (d).

(f)

The right of the sender of a payment order to be excused from the obligation to pay the order as stated in subdivision (c) or to receive refund under subdivision (d) may not be varied by agreement.
