ZAR Transfers

Here you'll find everything you need to know about sending to South African Rand.

If you'd like to work out the fees related to a ZAR transfer, check out our pricing calculator.

Please note: ZAR Transfers are made via the SWIFT international transfer network, which means they may be more expensive than other transfer routes. We'll always share the fee with you upfront. You can learn more about SWIFT here.

Recipient bank regulations: Due to South African regulations, recipient banks and/or our payment handler may require additional information in order to process your payment. Please make sure you provide a valid email address so your recipient can be contacted.

If the information isn't provided on time, the bank may reject the payment. If this happens, we'll let you know.
