What is a margin?

Exchange rates are calculated at a specific percentage of the live market rate (also known as a ‘Spot’ rate). Usually you can expect to receive a margin of between 0.5% - 2% of this rate.

Your very own personalised margin

We will calculate your exchange rate at a precise margin unique to you. Your agreed margin will be available on your International Payments account so that you can instruct payments throughout the day at the click of a button. You will always know the exact rate that you will receive at any given time when you log in to your account.
