    Re: is it fine?

    If I say "on", doesn't it mean that Feb/20th is the date in which I scheduled the transfer?

    I('ve) scheduled a transfer... on Feb/20th.


    What I actually want to convey is that I have already scheduled a transfer (in a past date) and that it (the transfer) will occur on Feb/20th. Then "I've scheduled a transfer for Feb/20th".

    What do you think, please?

    Thanks.

    Hi!
    Which one is clearer, please?
    I've scheduled for Feb/20th a CA$215.00 transfer to your bank account.
    I've scheduled a CA$215.00 transfer to your bank account for Feb/20th.
    Do you think that commas could/should be used before and after "for Feb/20th" in order to stand it out, please?
    Thanks.

    Re: is it fine?

    I would say "I've scheduled a transfer to your account of [dollar amount] for [date of the transfer].

    There's no need for commas. If you need to emphasize the date, you could do this:
    The transfer of [amount] to your account has been scheduled for [date].
