HEAR FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
“I was selling my products in the USA and found it very time consuming and challenging to set up a bank account, but by comparison, setting up my currency account with WorldFirst was simple and efficient”.

Company director of Glamour Empire Ltd (Happy Mama Boutique)

 

The International Collections Account in action

Established in 2013, Glamour Empire Ltd produces womenswear, specialising in comfortable and chic maternity clothing.

Glamour Empire Ltd has been working with WorldFirst for four and half years. Prior to this, the company had been using an FX company based in Poland and making FX transfers directly from a business bank account, but this was very arduous and time consuming.

Find out why Glamour Empire turned to WorldFirst and hasn't looked back since.
