This integration will allow a private financial institution to offer zero commission payments 24/7 – 365 in the United Kingdom and Overseas Territories. The bank’s customers will be able to send funds for up to 1 million pounds in real-time according to a convenient and secure procedure.
Consumers will be able to send pounds sterling directly from US dollar accounts at Xapo Bank to UK financial institutions and participating Overseas Territories, leading digital banks such as Wise and Revolut, and exchanges for commission-free payment. Also, customers have the opportunity to deposit these funds in banks around the world.
The integration allows you to top up your accounts using FPS. Pounds sterling are automatically converted into US dollars and credited to a dollar account.
