The SWAP and Exchange Rates
CURRENCY SWAP TRANSACTIONS
Any Swap Request by the Cardholder shall solely be governed by the provisions of these Terms of Service.
We use the Interbank Mid-market Rate for all SWAP options obtained our current chosen pricing partner.
Cardholders can choose to make a swap request to another member in either GBP or EUROS, this is known as a 7day swap. The rate used is the mid-market interbank rate and is confirmed at the completion of the swap.
Swaps from GBP or Euros into another currency are actioned dynamically at the ATM or point of sale. Rates are determined at the time of the transaction request, and carry a 0.5% fee from the daily interbank rate.
The fees that a Cardholder will be charged in respect of any Currency Swap Transaction will be dependent upon the Swapping Option that a Cardholder requests.
Details of the SWAP Options and the fees payable in relation to each Swapping Options are subject to change from time to time, and are set out in detail here -
7 Day SWAP – The user can elect to SWAP within a 7day period with another SWAPX member. This option shall incur no additional fees for the swap. The swap request shall be live within this time period until SWAPX can match all or part of the swap request. The rate used shall be the interbank mid rate at the time the SWAP is matched.
SWAP NOW - This is dynamic at the ATM or point of sale. Rates are determined at the time of the transaction and carry a 0.5% fee from the daily interbank rate.
The fees payable in relation to each Swapping Option will be displayed at the time of making the Swap Request, and in accepting a Swap Request, you are agreeing to the price displayed at that time.
We will use our best endeavours to process a Swap Request to meet your deadlines as the same are specified at the time of making the Swap Request.
It will be possible to transact through the Website when the Global Foreign Exchange Market is closed for business. In such circumstances, we will apply the exchange rate as available at the close of business of the Global Foreign Exchange Market on the previous business day.
Parts of a Currency Swap Transaction will be executed as suitable matches for them become available at the then applicable Interbank Mid-market Rate. Once a part of the Currency Swap Transaction is executed that part is irreversible and you may no longer change it. You will however be able to correct the details of the outstanding parts of your Swap Request at any time up until the full execution of the request. After that point you will no longer be able to correct details of your Swap Request. Your Account will receive Currency Swap Transaction updates along the way, so you know exactly which part has been fulfilled and which part is outstanding.
We will acknowledge your Swap Request once we have received it, but please note that this is an acknowledgement only and does not constitute acceptance of your request by us.
We are entitled to refuse, withdraw or cancel your Swap Request at any time, for any reason.
If a Swap Request is cancelled on the instructions of any court, law enforcement agency or regulatory body we may retain all or any of your money if required to do so by law and then deal with it as ordered by a court or other body of competent jurisdiction.
You are responsible for any additional costs incurred by us if you have provided incorrect payment instructions for the purpose of transferring funds from your Account.
