Frequently asked questions

Disclaimers

1 Instant Global Money payments can only be made between individual HSBC accounts, locally or globally in participating countries/territories. By “instantly” we mean within 6 seconds. Global Money payments can be made between eligible HSBC and non-HSBC accounts worldwide in participating countries/territories subject to the availability of supported currencies. Global Money Transfers to other banks may take longer.

2 We draw on a combination of factors to provide Global Money Account users with competitive conversion rates, quoted to you at the time of making the transfer. You’ll receive the HSBC Exchange Rate before you complete a transaction. This rate refreshes every 90 seconds to align to market exchange rates. The HSBC Exchange Rate includes the HSBC cost rate and a foreign currency conversion margin.

3 This capability is part of the optional Payment Network feature. To receive funds into a Global Money Account via the Payment Network, the intended beneficiary must also be a holder of a Global Money Account and have opted into the Payment Network.

4 The Payment Network is an optional consent based feature that you may choose to register for. The Payment Network allows users holding a Global Money Account to search for other customers who have registered for the Payment Network using their mobile phone number in order to make multi-currency payments directly to the account holder.

Payee should be an individual account holder and Online Banking registered in the receiving country.
