Make the process of receiving funds from abroad simple and straightforward. Remember to give the sender the FNB SWIFT code: FIRNZAJJ. This will assist them in making an international payment to your FNB account.
When a sender from abroad is transferring money to you; whether it's for goods purchased, freight, or any other reason; we make it easy and convenient to convert the funds into your FNB account.
Once FNB receives the payments, and you have accepted the rate, the funds will be credited to your cheque account.
If you receive these funds on a regular basis, you can provide FNB with direct authorisation to convert these funds on your behalf at a competitive rate immediately. This is known as a Standing Instruction.
A Standing Instruction can earn you up to 15% back in eBucks for funds received in foreign currency on the transaction charges.
