How it works
It’s easy to start making payments with WorldFirst. Once you’ve opened an account, one of our currency specialists will work with you to find the right solution for your needs and we won't charge you a cent.*
We’re here to help reduce any hassles or worries about exchange rates and market fluctuations, and here's how it works:
Fees and charges
There are no hidden charges or fees for personal transfers. The rate we quote you will include a spread which is simply the difference between the rate we buy your currency at and the rate at which we sell it to you. Ask us – we will always be upfront and transparent about spreads.
We will always do our best to cover correspondent and receiving charges from banks where we can.
With WorldFirst there is a minimum transfer value of $2,000 or equivalent.
It’s free to open an account and we don’t charge fees for receiving money or any ongoing subscription costs. Please visit our FAQs for more details.
What we offer
With a spot contract we’ll quote you a rate for use straight away. Great for making a payment immediately – or ‘on the spot’.
Forward contracts allow you to secure a rate today that you can use for a set period of up to three years. Great for planning ahead.
