I live in France, but I mainly work for UK clients. Therefore, I’ve got a UK account from which I regularly need to transfer money into my French account. I’ve heard that Worldpay is quite cheap compared to the normal bank charges for transferring money but don’t how to go about it. Do you have to go through a bank or do you contact Worldpay directly? Do you need to register with them as a client or something like that?

Thanks for your help

Try reading the Worldpay Website Oct 17, 2004

Hi Mandy,

I never heard of Worldpay until you posted your question. I suggest that you visit their UK Website which was easy to find:

If you want the information in German or French you can select it at the top of the page under "Choose another region".

Personally I don't think that Worldpay is the solution you're looking for since their services appear expensive to me.

Regards from Germany,

Bob Kerns

Heard it was cheaper Oct 18, 2004

Hi Bob,

Well, I heard that with Worldpay a transfer of around GBP2000 costs GBP9, whereas if I ask my English bank to transfer the money into my French account I pay around GBP25!

Thanks for the link. I will have a look into it.

No transfers through Worldpay Oct 19, 2004


I’ve been in touch with Worldpay and it turns out they don’t do transfers. I wonder what that translator colleague meant then…

Like Bob.... Oct 19, 2004

...I didn't know about Worldpay either, other than having vaguely heard of the name. But perhaps your colleague was talking about it as a method of accepting payment (payment by credit & debit card).
