It’s quick and easy to sign up for a moneycorp account, after which you’ll then be free to pay money abroad to France as and when you need to. Simply fund your account via debit card or bank transfer, then exchange up to 33 currencies online (or 120+ over the phone).

Send money online to France

An online account with moneycorp allows you to access your funds 24/7 and make and transfer money online around the clock. To make your payment, set up a new recipient by entering their details (or select an existing one), enter the amount you wish to send and then we’ll have your money on its way.

Most online payments to France take 1-2 working days to arrive. Alternatively, you can transfer money to France over the phone with the assistance of one of our currency specialists.

 

Information you’ll need for a bank transfer to France

When making an international payment to France, you will need to provide the IBAN (International Bank Account Number) and BIC / SWIFT code of your recipient. The IBAN will inform your bank of the specific account to send the funds to, while the BIC / SWIFT code helps to identify the recipient bank initially.

We’ve created in-depth guides on both IBANs and SWIFT codes to provide all the information you need to know when making an overseas payment to France. 

 

What does a French IBAN look like?

Every French bank account will have an IBAN, a code you will need to make an international payment to France. IBANs in France are 26 characters long (example below), consisting of an ISO Country Code, two IBAN check digits and a Basic Bank Account Number (BBAN). This BBAN is itself made up of a Bank Identifier Code, a Branch Identifier, an Account Number and two BBAN Check Digits. Your bank will require the recipient’s IBAN so that they can identify the account in which to transfer the funds of your overseas payment.

Example of a French IBAN:

FR14 0123 4567 9901 2345 6789 01
