An international money transfer is the same thing as an international bank transfer. This kind of transfer is when you send money from your account in one country to someone else’s bank account in another country.
Different banks and financial institutions can complete international transfers for you, but many charge a premium, offer poor exchange rates or charge hidden fees.
Pockit charges a small fee for the transfer and offers excellent exchange rates. There are no hidden fees.
You can send money abroad quickly and easily in the Pockit app or in your web account. Read our steps to transferring money.
Transfer abroad costs £0.99 plus foreign exchange fee of 0.3%. Additionally, our partner Wise charges a small fee, which is shown to you during the transfer.
When you make a transfer, we’ll give you an estimate for when your money should arrive.
Please note not all countries have banking systems that work on weekends or holidays. Our delivery times factor in banking hours of the country you’re sending money to.
In some parts of the world, banks stop processing transfers early on Fridays. That means, if your money’s due to arrive on Friday, it may not show in your recipient’s account until the next working day.
The maximum amount you can send depends on the type of your Pockit account. See how to check this.
Yes. Though sending money abroad can cause worry, we have systems in place to make sure your money and data are always safe and protected from theft, fraud, and loss.
1. Pockit 2-step verification — this protects your account as you will need to verify your identity through text message, fingerprint, or face recognition every time you log in. You will also need to answer a security question every time you make a transfer. These steps help make sure no one else can access your account or make payments without your knowledge.
2. Pockit anti-fraud and support teams — our dedicated fraud team works hard to ensure our customers, their data, and their money are protected from fraud attempts. If you have any questions or concerns about this, our friendly team is here to help.
