How to top up my USD wallet via wire transfer?
To transfer USD via wire transfer, please go to our web platform, click on the USD Wallet > Top Up and follow the instructions.
- You will be asked to provide the bank account details, which you will use for sending a transfer. It's imperative that the bank account (number and routing) and sender (first, last name, and billing address) information provided at the time of bank account creation exactly matches the information received on the wire transfer details (what the sender bank transmits). When there are mismatches, we are obliged to fail the payment and return the funds.
- After, you will be shown detailed wiring instructions. Please, don't forget to indicate the correct bank wire transfer details when making a payment.
- It is essential to include the tracking reference value on the reference field when prompted for it by your bank. Failure to indicate the tracking reference makes it difficult, in some instances - impossible to reconcile the payment. Therefore, such transfers might be returned to the sender.
- Please select your bank account, which you will use for sending a USD wire transfer.
- Don’t transfer funds from a third-party bank account. The bank account must be held in your name.
Here's a quick guide on how to find your routing number. For US bank accounts - please make sure you are entering a routing number for wire transfers, not for ACH (automated clearing house payment systems). You can check if you're using the correct routing number for wire here.
The above information is also displayed after you click on the "Top UP" button:

Unsupported bank accounts
We currently cannot support wire payments originating from bank accounts that require For Further Credit (FFC) instructions. In an FFC payment, the money is sent to the final beneficiary via an intermediary bank which obfuscates the bank account sender information.
Examples of these bank accounts are brokerage and investment accounts, accounts that leverage third-party payment processors, accounts with money transfer services, and challenger banks without their own banking license, like Revolut or Wise (formerly TransferWise).
