Additional benefits and Services
SEPA Credit Transfers
For most Eurozone payments, we recommend asking for a SEPA transfer when we transmit funds for you. Although this type of payment takes 1 working day, it is cheaper (we charge £7 per payment or free if you buy over £30,000-worth of Euros) and guarantees that the receiving bank in Europe will not charge you anything to receive your money.
In some countries (particularly Spain), receiving charges can be punitive, with the foreign bank deducting a commission of up to 0.5% of your payment value, just for crediting your account! Using SEPA payments gets round this problem, as banks are not allowed to charge for incoming payments. The system only works for transfers up to 50,000, but if you buy more than this amount, we can split your payment into smaller transactions at no extra cost to you.
The other type of payment we offer is a Swift transfer or telegraphic transfer. This is a same-day transfer within Europe, and will mean the recipient bank receives your payment the same day we send it (although they will sometimes take a day or so to credit your local branch). Swift transfers cost £12 or are free if you buy over £30,000-worth of Euros. While many European countries do not levy receiving charges, with a Swift transfer we cannot guarantee that this will not happen; although your Currency Index account manager will be able to give you an idea of likely charges based on our experience.
