SWIFT Bank transfers

For those who live outside of the SEPA zone, the SWIFT payment method allows for higher spending limits, a safer way to pay, and the best part - you'll save money in fees!*

What is it?

The SWIFT payment network is a global messaging system that facilitates secure international wire transfers. 

How does it work?

When you initiate a bank transfer using this method, your bank first debits your account for the transaction amount and sends a message over the SWIFT network to the receiving bank, who then credits the receiver's account.

All SWIFT payments must be made in the same currency chosen at the beginning of your order (GBP or USD).

3. Initiate the transfer

  • Log into your own online banking system or visit your bank branch and initiate a SWIFT transfer in the amount of your order. Enter the provided bank details when selecting the recipient. In the notes section of your transfer, enter CUSXE96KH for reference.
  • Once the transfer has been successfully completed and we have received your funds, the cryptocurrency rate will be locked.
The bank account used must be yours and must be held in your name. Coinmama also does not accept third-party or corporate bank account transfers.
SWIFT payments made from a bank account outside of the UK must be made in USD.

5. Confirm your wallet

If you don't have 2FA enabled, head over to your email inbox, read the message carefully, and click the link in the wallet confirmation email if the information is correct.

Once you have confirmed your wallet, we usually send the coins within an hour, and you'll be able to see them as soon as the Blockchain has confirmed the transaction - this may take another 10 minutes or longer, depending on the amount of traffic on the Blockchain Network at the given time.

Your coins will be sent out only after you've confirmed your wallet address via email.
