Additional Notice

Funding using a credit/debit card.

Using a credit/debit card is probably one of the fastest and easiest ways to deposit money into your trading account with us.

If you have never funded your account with a credit/debit card before, you will need to have your card first authorised by us. To do this, please go to My Account settings on your Client Portal area, click Manage Credit Cards > Add Credit Card Now and follow the prompts. Due to strict AML policy, we will also require you to upload a colour image of your card showing your full name. For this reason, we may not approve prepaid debit cards and virtual cards. Once your card is approved and linked to your account, we keep only incomplete details of your card for verification purposes.

Please note we can only accept Visa or MasterCard and the maximum deposit amount is $10,000.

Please also note that we can only cover fees known to us. If you incur a separate non-transaction fee from your bank or payment provider, any such fee will be your responsibility. For example, a credit card provider may view a payment made to us as a cash advance and bill you according to your credit card’s cash advance rules. Please contact your own bank for details.

Funding via bank wire transfer.

Bank Wire Transfer is an effective way to transfer funds from any country in the world.

To see our bank wire details, please login to the secure Client Portal payment area and select your chosen deposit currency from the displayed tabs – this will provide you with the details you need to transfer your funds. You may also need to contact your bank to obtain a wire transfer form or instructions on how to complete wire transfer via their online banking service. When we receive the funds from your bank, we will credit your account immediately.

Please ensure to send the funds to the correct trust account, as incorrect deposit currencies may not be accepted.

Please also note that Australian bank transfers should not incur any fees, but international bank transfer fees may apply. It is best to check with local bank/institution for details of these fees and surcharges.
