How it works

It’s easy to start making payments with WorldFirst. Once you’ve opened an account online or over the phone, one of our specialists will work with you to find the right solution for your needs.



Set up your transfer

You just need to tell us how much you want to send, who you want to pay, and which currency you want to pay in. Then we'll quote you a rate for your trade. Simple.


Send us your money

Once you've booked your rate, you'll receive a trade confirmation containing all the payment information so you can pay us by debit card or bank transfer.


We make your payment

That's it. We'll take care of the rest - convert your funds and send the money to the account you requested, all at a great rate. Easy!

What we offer

Spot contract icon

Spot contracts

So called because they’re done ‘on the spot’, these allow you to secure an exchange rate and make your payments straight away. A spot is the ideal option if you’re busy and just need to get things moving as soon as possible.

Forward contract icon

Forward contracts

Like to plan ahead and find ways to help protect your margins? Then forward contracts could be for you. They allow you to lock in exchange rates now and make your international payments later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to three years in advance.

Bulk payments icon

Regular international payments

If you're sending money abroad on a regular basis, you’ll want to set up automated payments. You can arrange this quickly and easily with us over the phone or online.
