Important notes for EUR transfers
For SEPA transfers
Non-ASCII characters will be converted to their ASCII equivalents or removed, to the best of our ability, in order to comply with the limitations of the domestic payment system.
Not every bank in Europe is on the SEPA payment scheme. Please check whether your beneficiary’s bank is on the SEPA payment scheme before initiating a EUR transfer via SEPA
For SWIFT transfers
Any characters not supported will be converted to EBCDIC equivalent or removed to comply with SWIFT payment network restrictions. The SWIFT network permits the use of letters, numbers, spaces, and the following symbols: / – ? : ( ) . , ‘ +.
