If you are using an FX service provider

You may also consider whether you should be entering your SGD local payment details or SGD SWIFT payment details, as the fees may vary depending on each option.

Some FX providers like Wise pay out SGD locally i.e. they make a local transfer to your account instead of making an international transfer. For such providers, you would save on fees by receiving the money directly into your Aspire SGD account via your local account details. If you’re unsure, we would advise that you check with your provider on this.
