This enables you to receive the proceeds from online sales in Japanese marketplaces, such as Amazon Japan and Rakuten, and bring your money home at great exchange rates. With World First, international sellers can have access to receiving accounts in the USA, UK, Canada, Europe and Japan, and receive money locally from global marketplaces easily.

Receiving accounts

We can open international receiving accounts for you in Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and the UK. We open them quickly and once you've got the details, you can update your marketplace and start selling to buyers around the world. Plus you benefit from great rates when you want to convert your payments back in to your own currency.

You should know that World First UK Ltd provides clients with access to a receiving bank account, in the name of World First Uk Ltd, for the sole purpose of receiving marketplace revenues. Funds held in these accounts are safeguarded and segregated in line with the requirements set by the Payment Services Regulation, 2009. These bank accounts aren't covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Fees and charges

It’s free to open an account and we don’t charge fees for receiving money. There are also no monthly charges or any transfer fees on foreign exchange transactions.

If you want a same currency transfer, we offer competitive transaction costs. Please contact us for further details on those.


Expanding into new marketplaces?

Growth on your mind? We could help you to start selling on new international marketplaces and expand into new regions by providing receiving accounts in multiple currencies.
