Hi John. 

 

I tried to open a moneycorp account earlier earlier in the week but it said there is a 'delay with the systems' and I haven't had a confirmation of the account being open yet. 

Is there a timescale on the delay? I was hoping to take advantage of the stronger pound soon (ish)

 

many thanks

simon

Thanks John - all set up now. 

 

Are there any charges at all when transferring money into an Australian bank account? 

Do you publish your exchange rates daily?

Just wanted to say we have today transferred our funds from the UK to Oz through Moneycorp without a hitch -yeeha !

Our Moneycorp manager Mohammed Alum has been very supportive over the last 12 months as I have pontificated over transferring when the £ was so low

But the transfer has gone smoothly thank goodness as several years ago I transferred from my Aussie bank to my UK bank who after two hours decided to send the funds back to Oz !!!

The funds were 'lost ' for 5 weeks floating in the ether one would guess - the UK bank did give me the funds back before the transaction was 'found ' at my insistence but !

I feel with Moneycorp having a 'real person ' to deal with is an asset so well done

John,

Is the budget expected to weaken the pound?

I am thinking of using MoneyCorp, I've opened an account and uploaded documents. I was wondering why MoneyCorp does not provide the opportunity to put in a figure somewhere so a customer can see what they would get after the transfer, Transferwise has this on their website.

Regards,

PW.

Hi,

Regarding the budget, it depends on any significant announcements and how these are perceived. Brexit news still having a big factor on the pound.

Once you are registered with us, you can view live rates via our online service as/when needed - or by asking your personal Account Manager (via email or over the phone). 

Plus, of course, your Moneycorp Account Manager can provide guidance on the exchange rate which relates to your own situation and timelines. 

Thanks

John

Hi John,

Thank you for getting back so quickly, I did log on to my account, but could not find any live links to take me to live rates. Does this only become available after my documents have been verified?

Regards,

PW

Hi John,

We are planning to do a one-off transfer from Australia to France.

We have used OFX in the past. I am interested to see how your exchange rates compare. I just would like to have a bit of an idea before uploading ID documents.

Thanks

Thanks for the message.

How much are you looking to transfer and do you have an estimate time for making the transfer?

Has anyone tried to transfer money from Santander to Moneycorp? It has been nothing but a nightmare. I'll forgo the hour and a half I spent on the phone to Santander to get my payments to moneycorp, but I have received an email from MoneyCorp telling me I have a negative balance, but the money should have been there by now. Looking at my online transactions is confusing, it looks like the money left my account, came back, then went out again.

30th - Bill payment via faster payment to moneycorp reference <myrefnumber>  THE £ AMOUNT
1st - Pended bill payment credited for interest to moneycorp      THE £ AMOUNT
1st - Bill payment via faster payment to moneycorp reference <myrefnumber> THE £ AMOUNT
 
Does anyone know what this means? I cant ring the bank as its out of hours, and also for Moneycorp. I mean, its only going from one UK account to another UK account. What's the bloody issue? Very frustrated, I've done my part, now it looks like the bank is shafting me. The Au$ should have been bought on Friday as per the contract.

All I did with my Lloyds account was to add my Moneycorp account as a payee/recipient

I then just transfer whatever from Lloyds to Moneycorp - I would have thought Santander would be the same ?

It's not Moneycorp it's Santander. Their anti-fraud team has gone into hyperdrive recently blocking any transaction that is "out of the ordinary". The problem is if you're living in Australia and therefore make very few transactions each year then any transaction is "out of the ordinary". You can contact Santander using the secure messaging facility on your online banking.

Trying to open account with you and am stuck on the “verifying identity” page. The number you gave me on your email telling me I need to finish up registering with you is no longer connected and when I found another “contact us” number on your website, I called it, only to be told at 9:15am that I had called out of business hours which started at 7:30 am.  Not a very impressive start I am sad to say
