About our fees

When you make an international money transfer through our app, we’ll apply a 0.4% fee to the transaction. That fee is included and taken from the conversion amount, so you’ll always know exactly how much your payment will cost – and then you’ll be able to choose from one of the delivery options below:

Priority delivery with SWIFT

Need to get it there quickly? Make a quick and straightforward bank-to-bank payment with SWIFT for a flat rate fee of £5.50.

Local network payment

Send your payment via a local partner – for some currencies it can take a little longer but prices start at just 30p per transfer.

Our exchange rates explained

We know how important a great exchange rate is when you’re sending money abroad. Here’s how we keep ours competitive:

Summary view international payments

No hidden fees

Banks often add a markup to the good exchange rates they advertise, which means they can add sneaky hidden fees of up to 5%. We don’t – and we never will. The exchange rate you see above is the real market rate, and we’ll use that to make the exchange into your currency of choice. It’s that simple.

A guaranteed rate

We’ll guarantee your exchange rate for 30 seconds, which means you’ll get the exchange rate you’ve been quoted during that time, even if it changes. We think it’s only fair.

It’s worth noting that like most of us, the global currency market takes weekends off – which means for now we’ll only be processing international transfers from 02.00 Monday to 22.00 Friday. Got any questions? Read our FAQs
