Qonto allows you to receive transfers from most countries worldwide, in various currencies, using the SWIFT network (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication).
What does this mean? 🤔
With Qonto, your US customers can pay you in dollars (USD), your Japanese partners can pay you in yen (JPY), and you can receive currencies like zloty (PLN) from Canada or rupee (INR) from Mexico. Of course, you can also receive euros!
Which currencies and countries are supported? 👉 See below!
Receiving Time ⏱
SWIFT transfers are typically credited to your Qonto account within 5 business days (excluding weekends and banking holidays). The exact timeframe depends on factors such as time zone differences, transfer creation time, issuing currency, and the sender's bank.
Please note that single non-euro transfers are subject to specific checks based on the country of origin and the transfer amount. We may contact you for additional information before crediting the funds to your account.
