How do I make a deposit?

Navigate to Funding > Deposit > USD/GBP/EUR in your account, select the available “SWIFT” payment option, and follow the given instructions. Note that your account must be verified to Tier 3 or 4 to deposit via this method. To help ensure a smooth transaction: a) Inquire with your bank about which correspondent bank would be best to specify for the transfer; and b) tell your bank that there should be no currency conversion – funds should arrive exactly how they are sent as USD, GBP or EUR.

How do I make a withdrawal?

Navigate to Funding > Withdrawal > USD/GBP/EUR in your account, select the available “SWIFT” payment option, and follow the given instructions.

Clients in SEPA countries

Clients in SEPA countries should continue to use SEPA for EUR payments since this is the fastest and most cost effective option in these countries. However, the new funding options are good for clients in these countries wishing to fund in USD or GBP.
