Get paid

You can withdraw your cash at any time, provided your account is validated and the funds have fully cleared.

Note: You are able to hold multiple currencies on account with us - the only restriction is that when you withdraw, you must be sure your bank will accept the currency you ask us to send. Most banks will automatically convert the funds into your home currency, usually at an expensive rate. Some banks will just reject the transfer and return the funds to us. Please check with your bank before withdrawing a foreign currency.

The procedure

Step 1. Log in and select the ACCOUNT button followed by the WITHDRAW FUNDS sub-menu option. Withdrawal requests must be more than $100 or other-currency equivalent.
Step 2. Type in the amount you wish to withdraw. Press the SUBMIT button, and on the subsequent page double-check all the details before pressing CONFIRM

When will I receive my money?

Withdrawal requests received before midnight GMT will be placed in a batch to be processed on the next working day. The time it takes for your funds to reach your bank account will vary according to the following:

For transfers to US banks:

We will typically pay you using ACH. We will deduct $10 for this service.

Where an ACH is not possible we will pay you using SWIFT. We will deduct $30 for this service.

Note: Exact transfer times may vary depending on your bank's time zone & service levels. Your withdrawal may show as 'unprocessed' until around 5pm UK time.

For transfers to UK banks:

  • Withdrawals of £20,000 and above, or at your request, will be processed by CHAPS. Ordinarily a CHAPS payment will reach you on the first working day after you enter your withdrawal request. The bank will deduct £20 for this service.
  • Withdrawals below £20,000 will be processed by BACS. Ordinarily a BACS payment will reach you on the third working day after you enter your withdrawal request. This transfer is free of charge.

Note: Exact transfer times may vary depending on your bank's service levels. Your withdrawal will show as 'unprocessed' until around 3pm UK time for CHAPS transfers, and around 5pm UK time for BACS transfers.

For transfers to EU, European Economic Area and Swiss banks:

We will pay you using SEPA. Ordinarily a SEPA payment will reach you within a few working days of entering your withdrawal request. We will deduct €10 for this service. Your bank may deduct additional charges (typically around €20).

Note: Exact transfer times may vary depending on your bank's time zone & service levels. Your withdrawal will show as 'unprocessed' until around 3pm UK time.

For transfers to all other banks:

We will pay you using SWIFT. The fee will depend on the currency of the transfer, but will not usually exceed $30.

Note: Exact transfer times may vary depending on your bank's time zone & service levels. Your withdrawal will show as 'unprocessed' until around 3pm UK time.

Any transfer costs will be taken out of the withdrawn amount - you do not need to allow for charges.
