Since the Coronavirus outbreak, WorldFirst has closely monitored the global situation. Our priority is to ensure continuity of service for our customers while taking appropriate measures to protect our employees.

Given the increase in UK cases, we have now encouraged employees to work remotely. They are able to operate normally using well-tested systems, and our teams are committed to ensure customer service is not impacted, but if there’s any delay in your calls or emails being answered please bear with us.

How it works


Secure a rate on USD

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 USD, 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 US dollars. Depending on when we receive your funds, payments may even arrive on the same day.

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.
