All You Need to Know about a Multi-Currency Account for Business

One of the latest trends in international business banking is multi-currency IBAN. This feature is extremely beneficial to the businesses that are trading their services and goods worldwide, and here’s why:

  • One IBAN account number works for any currency, so you don’t need to sort out, what account is suitable for every operation of your business;
  • A multi-currency account will receive almost any transaction, which is especially useful when customers transfer money to an incorrect IBAN by mistake, which happens surprisingly often;
  • If you need more of a certain currency, you can promptly exchange an excessive balance at good exchange rates and without having any hidden fees;
  • Transfers in foreign currencies are often processed with a lower commission because you don’t have to pay for the conversion. In the end, your account will be funded with the transfer currency.

How to Use It?

If you have a multi-currency account, your customers get a single point of payment and have no problems like exchanging money, facing extra fees, opening new accounts in other currencies or clearing everything in EUR or GBP. This is a question of convenience that may result in higher sales, customer loyalty, and retention.

To go with that, you can easily connect your IBAN to payment services like PayPal, which will make running your business as smooth as never and bring the best commercial value to your business.
