9 Terms Corporations Should Know About International Payments


1. Spot (SWIFT Wire)

The fastest method of making secure payments around the world. Using the SWIFT payment network, international wire transfers are quoted at the spot rate or the value of the currency at the current moment.

2. Days-to-Spot

The number of days the transfer of funds will settle from the trade date.

3. Forward

An agreement to buy a particular currency at an agreed exchange rate at a set future date. This lets you lock in a rate today for settlement at a future point in time.

4. Global EFT

An international payment method facilitating direct bank transfers to applicable bank accounts internationally and optionally in the beneficiary’s local currency. With global EFT, typical transactions fees associated with international payments are reduced providing a cost-effective method of transferring funds around the world.
