We offer an indicative exchange rate in the app which can move up or down after you’ve placed the payment. The final exchange rate will be applied when the money leaves your account.
International Payments can be made from any current account (personal or business). They can’t be made from savings accounts, cash accounts or credit cards
For SEPA payments you’ll need the recipient’s name and IBAN.
For SWIFT payments you’ll need the recipient’s name, account number or IBAN (except for the USA, where you would enter the ABA/Routing number instead).
IBAN: International Bank Account Number. The first two characters of the IBAN are letters, and the next two characters are numbers. The remaining characters are either letters or numbers.
SWIFT/BIC: SWIFT codes are eight or eleven characters long. The first six characters are letters, and the remaining characters are either letters or numbers. The fifth and sixth characters of the SWIFT code (e.g. MYMBGB2L) and the first two characters of the IBAN (e.g. GB01MYMB23058012121212) represent the country the payment is being sent to (in this case, GB = Great Britain).
If both SWIFT and IBAN codes are supplied, the country codes must be the same in each one
