Send payments to countries in their local currency (eg GBP to the UK) with our proprietary, local payment technology. We only charge a small margin on FX conversions with zero transaction fees. To send money overseas, see the below currencies we support.
Access interbank rates + 1.0% fees
Sending non-local currencies overseas (e.g. USD to China)? We can still help but we will need to use the SWIFT network and charge a small payment fee of £10 SHA. This is to cover the cost of using the SWIFT network.
