If you are looking to make an international payment or receive money from overseas, Moneycorp can make the process quick, simple and straightforward, enabling you to send payments to friends and family (and perhaps even purchase that dream holiday home). You can choose from one of our competitive exchange rates online, either via our website or mobile app, and you also have the option of contacting us by telephone. We’ll take care of the rest.

Setting up a Moneycorp account and transferring money overseas couldn’t be easier. Upon adding funds to your online account, you have the option of exchanging more than 30 currencies and sending money abroad to over 190 countries. Payments take 1-2 days, with express payments arriving on the same day.


How to make international payments

It’s easy to make international payments with Moneycorp. If you wish to make an online payment to a new recipient, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your account, select 'Send Payment' and then click 'Add New Recipient' 
  2. Select the country in which the recipient's bank account is located, and choose the currency that you'd like to transfer
  3. Specify the recipient's full name, address and bank account number
  4. Provide an IBAN, BIC/SWIFT code and any other banking code or number required by the recipient's country. Once all the forms have been filled out, click 'Save' to retain the recipient's details in your account
  5. Enter the amount that you'd like to send, in addition to the date that you'd like the money to arrive, and confirm your overseas money transfer

Once you have added a recipient bank account to your list, you can make future payments without having to enter their banking details again. Alternatively, you can arrange to make an overseas payment over the phone.


What bank details are needed to transfer money internationally?

The information that you’ll need to provide when transferring money overseas will vary according to each country’s requirements. However, most international payments typically require the following details:

  • Name of the account holder
  • Account number
  • A BIC SWIFT code
  • An IBAN, or an alternative country banking code


Your exchange options when sending payments abroad

If you’d like to exchange your funds to a foreign currency, there are a range of options that we offer. One such option is to use a spot contract; this converts your funds to another currency using the current exchange rate, allowing you to make an immediate overseas payment in the required currency.

If you’d like to make a payment at some point in the next few weeks or months, you have the option of using a forward contract. Forward contracts allow you to transfer money at a fixed future date using the current exchange rate. Please note that future contracts often require a deposit.
