Are you sending or receiving money from the UK as a business or individual?
Whether it is AUD, CAD or CHY, WorldFirst can save you time and money when transferring British pounds (GBP) – it’s as simple as that.
Cheaper international money transfers
How? We typically take a smaller profit on transfers than most high street banks which means that more of your money actually makes it to the UK.
It’s fast and easy to register with WorldFirst too, and once you’re a client, you can make transfers at any time with our easy-to-use online platform.
So what are you waiting for? This is your new way to make international transfers.Get started now
How it works
Secure a rate on GBP
Once your account is setup and you’ve given us the details of the account you’d like us to pay, we’ll quote you a rate. You can access rates either online or by phone.
Send us your money
When you’ve agreed a rate for GBP, we’ll ask you to send us the money by bank transfer before we make your transfer. The minimum we can transfer is £1,000 or equivalent.
Make your payment
Once we’ve received your funds we’ll send your onward payment in British pounds. Depending on when we receive your funds, payments may arrive the same day.
What we offer
So called because they're done 'on the spot', allowing 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.
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.
