Transfer Time Information

Transfer times, from start to finish are dependent on the method of funding incoming to VBCE and the method of outgoing payment to your selected payee.

Please refer to the chart and match your method of incoming payment with the method of outgoing payment for approximate transaction times. For descriptions of the funding and payment methods, please refer to Funding Methods and Payment Methods section.

Transfer times are reliant on bank processing times, which is why we can only provide a range.

*Start to finish refers to the moment you have booked your transaction online, to when your selected payee has received the purchased currency.
