Two Funding Methods For International Accounts

As an international customer, you have two methods to fund your account

International customers have two funding methods. Both funding methods must be made in USD and cannot come from a third party. tastyworks does not provide any currency conversion services. The two most common funding methods are:

  1. Bank wire
  2. CurrencyFair
ACH relationships are only available for international customers that own a U.S.-based bank account. ACH relationships cannot be linked to an international bank accounts, TransferWise accounts, or Revolut accounts.


How long does it take?

About 3-5 business days after initiating the transfer

Fund transfers from international sources can take 3-5 business days to post in your tastyworks trading account after initiating the transfer from your bank via wire or via CurrencyFair.


Can I deposit money using TransferWise?

Deposits cannot be made using TransferWise

Currently, the only money transfer service our clearing firm accepts is CurrencyFair. Any deposit sent with TransferWise will be rejected and returned. Rejected deposits are potentially subject to a $30 reversal fee issued by our clearing firm. To avoid any reversal fees, we suggest using CurrencyFair or bank wire to deposit funds.


Can I deposit money using Revolut?

Deposits cannot be made using Revolut

Similar to TransfeWise, the only money transfer service our clearing firm accepts is CurrencyFair. Any deposit sent with Revolut will get rejected and returned. Rejected deposits are potentially subject to a $30 reversal fee issued by our clearing firm. To avoid any reversal fees, we suggest using CurrencyFair or bank wire to deposit funds.


Other funding methods not allowed

In short, any non-traditional banks aside from CurrencyFair are not allowed

Other funding methods such as Western Union, MoneyGram, PayPal, Payoneer, debit cards, and credit cards are not valid funding sources that our clearing firm will accept. To fund your account we strongly suggest using a traditional bank wire or CurrencyFair.
