    Question vocabulary question

    I cannot find the right expression in English regarding the next subject:
    money transfer, i.e. what is the right expression for the moment when the paid amount of money "arrives" to a designated account?
    For instance, I made a payment to my friend's account and she promised to call me the moment the money... account.

    Thanks for help

    she promised to call me the moment the money is deposited in the account.

    she promised to call me the moment the money is credited to the account.

    she promised to call me the moment the money is posted to the account.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra

    I believe if you are just informing your friend in a conversational way, I would also say the money has arrived. As when we used to work in the banks, we say the money has arrived or the money transfer is completed.
    Then, of course, it fully depends on how profound you would like to sound.

    I need this expression for formal usage, and I used credited to.. hopefully the native speakers will find that to be the appropriate expression

    'Credited to' is perfect.
