World First - Foreign Exchange


Our partners at World First are able to assist online sellers working across multiple markets and currencies to achieve greater control over their funds and better exchange rates between those currencies. World First do this by setting up bank accounts in the native currencies of your Amazon accounts. This then allows you to repatriate your revenues back to your home bank account at your own convenience, at better exchange rates.

As the market increasingly demands cross-border trading, it makes sense to consider the margins you make or sacrifice moving your money between currencies, allowing you to optimize your prices to achieve higher sales.
