How it works

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



Make an international transfer

You just need to tell us how much you want to send (over £1,000), who you want to pay and which currency you want to pay in. Then we'll quote you a rate and you can book the 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. Put your feet up. 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 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 a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible!

Forward contracts

Like to plan ahead? 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!

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.
