How does currency conversion work?

Once you have entered the amount you want to transfer, and click ‘Calculate’, the rate will be held for 10 seconds.

If you do not click ‘Confirm’ within the 10-second window, you will need to hit ‘Calculate’ again.

Foreign exchange (FX) rates fluctuate frequently, which is why the rate is only held for ten seconds. This ensures you receive the most accurate rate at the time of conversion.

Your FX transfer will occur instantly and you are able to trade right away.
