What is a spot contract?

A spot contract is the simplest form of international payment. Simply put, we’ll offer you a rate based on live market rates (or "spot") and you can choose whether or not to transact then and there.

With a spot contract you can make a payment very quickly; as soon as you’ve agreed your rate and sent us the funds, we’ll take care of the rest.

We’ll aim to give you a great rate and great service to make your transfer as quick and easy as possible.

When you’ve agreed to a rate, we’ll ask you to send us the money by bank transfer before we make your transfer.


Make your payment

Once we’ve received your funds we’ll send your onward payment. Depending on the currency and the destination, payments can arrive on the same day.
