I spoke with support at MtGox regarding UK transfers a while back, since faster payments show up instantly I was wondering why I didn't get credited for 2 days. I was told that as they are based in Japan it takes longer for the payment to show in there account...?
I don't think that's quite true as the account we send the Faster Payment to is UK based.
For really fast trades there are a few guys on here and OTC that do UK Bank > Bank transfers, did my first trade this way on here today and from first pm to coins in wallet it took maybe 3hrs so that's always an option if you need the coin fast.
Thanks for the tip
Yeah didn't make much sense to me either since my transfers to my partners account (Barclays > Barclays) show up within seconds, just dug up the reply I got from support.

Usually it takes another business day for the information to be released to us from Barclays (as we are in Japan and we are in a different time zone). However, we will notify you once your account is credited. Thank you for your patience in the process.
Was using Intersango until recently since they had a much faster turnaround 2-10hrs usually, but after the recent problems and having my funds still tied up in there 10 days after a transfer I think im going to stick to trading on here.
