We don’t charge any fees to receive deposits*, but please keep in mind that third party fees may apply.

Examples of third party fees:

  • Both incoming and outgoing wire transfer reversals are subject to wire transfer reversal fees. Federal, state or local taxes charged by the customer's country of origin may apply.

Problems with your deposit

There may be problems with your deposit if you provide erroneous information when transferring, such as:

  • Wrong Type of Account 
  • Wrong Branch ID
  • Wrong Bank Account
  • Wrong required identification number

Also, deposits must be made from an individual account registered to your name and national ID number. If your deposit is not made from an individual bank account in your name, your money will be transferred back to your bank account with potential bank fees charged.
For example, a deposit made from a joint bank account in the names of you and your partner will be returned.

To prevent problems, we recommend you confirm that you’ve entered the correct information before completing the transfer. You can also always reach us at if you have any questions after submitting your transfer.

Limits and minimums

You can start investing with as little as US$5!** There are no limits to the amount you can deposit in your account. Regarding limits, every country is unique and there might be limits imposed by regulation. We recommend you become educated on your country’s regulations about sending money overseas before depositing considerable amounts.
