Non bank currency conversion

Postby JackFul » Wed Oct 05, 2022 10:10 am

Hi,

Having used a recommendation from here in the past, can anyone refer a currency conversion firm? I used Transfer Wise last time and their "aftersales" support was chronic so I would rather go elsewhere this time.

It's left over euros I want to bring back here.

Thanks.

I can help you - and am a former Wandsworth resident!

I plug the gap between the "challenger" firms and the larger brokers, offering exchange rates and segregated accounts in your own name, making it easier when you're sending/receiving foreign currencies.

Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Can you use something like Revolut? Not for physical cash but for loading onto a card from a bank account and then using for payments in any currency (or onward payment to another account in another currency) works well.

Morning, thank you both for the suggestions. Misano, I will contact you with a couple of questions. SW11 thank you; revolut I put in the same category as TransferWise. Perhaps I'm getting old though and I'm not their target customer!

Hi

I regularly use Transferwise (now Wise) for business purposes but agree their customer service is limited. I also use SATFX again for business purposes but I see from their website they also deal with personal transactions. They offer great customer service and lots of hand holding which I have appreciated!

After speaking with Misano Payments last week and satisfied with the answers to my couple of questions, I was registered and my euros received early Friday afternoon. I this morning had the GBP arrive in my bank account.

I wanted to say thank you to Toby on here, particularly as this is where I heard of him. As a small business he provides a personal service that is refreshing these days (it is his own business). I've also got a multi-currency account/wallet in my name that I can use again in future.

Thank you Jack for your testimonial, very kind. It was a pleasure to be able to assist and thanks again for your business!

If there are any other NVNers who need to send/receive foreign currencies (bank to bank), I'd be delighted to help.

Have a good weekend.
