1. How do I purchase currency using my online account?
Simply go to the ‘Book a Deal’ box on your account dashboard and follow the steps to let us know which currency you would like to purchase, the amount, and which currency you will be paying in. You will then be able to see the live exchange rate you can achieve (the exchange rate refreshes every 30 seconds in line with the live currency market). Click to confirm when you’re ready to purchase. You will then receive a confirmation message with a specific contract number relating to your purchase.
2. How do I add a beneficiary to my online account?
Simply go to the ‘Add a Beneficiary’ box on your account dashboard and follow the steps. You will be required to add all the beneficiary’s account details for onward transfer. A confirmation message will let you know when the beneficiary has been successfully added.
3. How do I pay for the currency I have purchased?
Once you have purchased funds we will send you an email (Contract Note) with all the required payment information for you to pay by bank transfer (this is the same payment process as contracts booked over the phone).

7. How do I transfer funds to a beneficiary?
To set up an onward transfer to a beneficiary, simply go to the ‘Deals’ tab on your account dashboard. In the ‘Contracts’ box you will be able to see a list of all your currency purchases ready to be transferred to a beneficiary. Choose the funds you want to transfer and select ‘Make a transfer’ to select the beneficiary. We will send you a confirmation email once the transfer has been booked and another once the transfer has been completed.

Your Smart Currency Online account allows you to transfer up to £15,000 in a single transaction – there is no minimum transfer amount.
For transfers over this size please call us on +44 20 8108 4006 to discuss with your account manager.
10. Can I buy currency at today's exchange rate to transfer in the future?
Yes. Once you have funds on your account you can choose the future date for these to be transferred onto your beneficiary. We are unable to hold funds on your account indefinitely. We ask that you set up your onward transfer within three months of purchasing the currency.
