You can top up your account by 2 main ways:
Transferring money in locally: Local transfers can be made electronically to your Aspire SGD accounts. Your Aspire accounts can receive monies via GIRO or FAST transfers made to your 17 digit Aspire SGD account number found here.
Transferring money in internationally: You will be able to receive foreign transfers (converted to SGD) by activating your SWIFT account details within the app here (subject to the SWIFT account's T&Cs). Your foreign currency will be converted into SGD at a low transparent fee of 0.5% (except SGD*) and at mid-market foreign Reuters exchange rate. While some banks might show a 0% fee, they incorporate a margin of ~1.5% in their foreign exchange rates, while Aspire does not take any further on the FX rate. This is why Aspire is cheaper. International transfers are exchanged at Reuters mid-market rate for 12 preferred currencies - USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, CAD, CHF, CNH, JPY, HKD, NOK, NZD, SEK.
* International SGD is received at a flat fee of 35 SGD - regardless of amount.
