FAQ

It's free to set up your Swift Pay for Business account.

There's a cheap, transparent fee to convert between currencies — either in your account or if you spend on your Swift Pay Business Mastercard® in a currency you don't have in your account.

If you want to get international bank details, there's a one-time £16 fee (or equivalent). It's free to receive money using some of your bank details. Others have a low fee.

When you convert money in your account it's always with the real exchange rate, and you always see our low, transparent fee up front so there's never any surprises. And if you spend on your Business Mastercard in a currency you don't have, it autoconverts the balance with the lowest fee, so you never have to worry.

Swift Pay is an authorised Electronic Money Institution independently regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK.

This means we're required by law to keep your money safe by storing it in a low-risk financial institution - in Europe this is in our UK account with Barclays, in the US this is in our US account with Wells Fargo.

These accounts are reserved for customer money, this means your assets are kept in a separate account from the money we use to run the business.

In the unlikely event Swift Pay ceased to exist, your money would be paid back from this account, ie from Barclays or Wells Fargo, however it is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and therefore is deposited at your own risk. You also cannot earn interest on the money in your borderless account.

Millions of customers trust Swift Pay with their money. We move billions of pounds every month, and we take the safety and security of your money seriously.

The Swift Pay debit Mastercard is issued by Swift Pay Ltd under license by Mastercard International Inc. Mastercard is a registered trademark, and the circles design on the card is a trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. Swift Pay is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011, Firm Reference 900507, for the issuing of electronic money.

AThere's a small fixed fee to withdraw funds from your Swift Pay account to another account in the same currency. The fee we charge to send money depends on the currency you're sending from.

This is the lowest we can charge to cover costs, and we're committed to getting the fee down over time.

We use the real exchange rate plus a small conversion fee when you convert a balance in your account to a different currency.
