What information do I need to send a payment?

You need the recipient’s first name, last name and bank details. This could mean their IBAN, ABA number/routing number or BIC/SWIFT code. For currencies other than EUR, we also require the recipient’s address. When you set up your payment in the PagoFX app or via PagoFX.com, we’ll show you the bank details you need for the currency and country you’re sending money to.

What is the smallest amount I can send?

The minimum amount you can send is £2, except for the following countries where the minimum amount is £100:

  • Australia (AUD)
  • Bahrain (BHD)
  • Canada (CAD)
  • Hong Kong (HKD)
  • Kuwait (KWD)
  • Singapore (SGD)
  • South Africa (ZAR)
  • Turkey (TRY)
  • United States (USD)
  • New Zealand (NZD)

What is the maximum amount I can send?

Maximum amounts will vary based on currency, country of destination and type of transaction. You should also consider that your card issuer or bank may impose limits to your card or bank account, respectively.

Can I transfer money on a weekend or bank holiday?

You can arrange a payment on a weekend or a bank holiday. However, the recipient will most likely receive your payment the following working day because clearing systems are closed over the weekend and during bank holidays. The app will show you the ‘expected arrival date’. Your transaction may also be delayed in case we set a limit to operating in certain currencies.

What is an IBAN?

IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. It’s a sequence of up to 34 letters and numbers that determines the country, bank and account that the payment should be sent to. This is applicable to banks in the European Economic Area, Switzerland, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait. Please double-check if you have the correct IBAN before confirming your payment on the app. Unfortunately, we’re unable to verify if the IBAN belongs to your recipient. Thus, we cannot guarantee that your money will reach the right person if you enter the recipient’s details incorrectly.

 

What is a BIC/SWIFT code?

BIC stands for Bank Identifier Code, which the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) assigns to a bank. Because of this, a BIC is sometimes called a SWIFT code but they’re both referring to the same thing. It’s a sequence of either 8 or 11 numbers that determines the country and bank that a payment should be sent to. You’ll need the BIC/SWIFT code if you’re sending money to Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa or New Zealand.

What is a routing number?

The routing number is a 9-digit number that identifies banks in the USA. You will need the recipient’s routing number and account number to successfully send a payment to the USA.

Please double check if you have the correct routing number before confirming your payment on the app. Unfortunately, we’re unable to verify if the number belongs to your recipient. Thus, we cannot guarantee that your money will reach the right person if you enter the recipient’s details incorrectly.

How can I fund my payments?

Currently, you can only fund payments using a debit card. We’ll be adding more funding methods in the near future.

Can I send money using a corporate card?

Yes –  if you have a sole trader account, you can use your corporate debit card to make payments for your business. Please note that if you have a personal PagoFX account, you cannot use a corporate card to make payments.

Do you accept payments through prepaid cards?

No, we currently don’t accept prepaid cards.

Can I send money to wallets?

No, you can only send money to bank accounts in our existing recipient countries.
