What does that mean?
It’s possible to send Zlotys (PLN) to Spain, or Yens (JPY) to Belgium. You can, of course, also send US Dollars (USD) to the United States, or Sterling Pounds (GBP) to the United Kingdom. You choose. It will not be possible to send Canadian Dollars (CAD) to China because we do not offer this currency even if we offer this country.
However, it’s not possible to send Euros (EUR), to the United States for example. On the other hand, it is possible to make transfers in the SEPA zone, in Euro, by following the SEPA transfer procedure.
What's the delay?
The time to receive a non-euro transfer is 5 working days maximum. There is no bank exchange on weekends. Different time zones can also affect the delay of transmission and reception of the transfer.
