7. What are the minimum and maximum amounts that can be transferred?
There is no minimum or maximum amount when you transfer money with us. There are, however, certain benefits to sending larger amounts.
8. What methods of payment can I use to transfer the funds to your account?
We accept GBP denominated UK debit card and internet banking payments. Your name and surname must be used as the reference when paying via internet banking. If a name and surname are not supplied, proof of payment must be emailed to us in order for us to allocate your funds for transfer.
9. What happens when I use a debit card as my preferred payment method?
The easiest way to transfer money with us is to use your UK debit card on our website.
First, enter in the amount that you wish to transfer as well as your debit card details. Then enter in the overseas recipient bank account details of the destination to which you wish the money to be transferred. This process is completely under your control and you don’t need to set foot in a bank or log on to an internet banking portal.
As soon as you submit your request online, your money is transferred from your account into ours. As the funds are transferred out of your account, the exchange rate will be secured for your transfer. This is how we ensure the rate you see when you request the transfer is the rate you get.
10. What happens when I use internet banking as my preferred payment method?
If you have chosen internet banking as your preferred payment method, you will need to complete two stages to affect a transfer. Firstly, you will need to upload your transfer instruction onto our website. This tells us the amount of money, destination to which and date on which you want the funds to be sent. After this, you will have to log in to your internet banking account and transfer the requested amount to the relevant Sable International client account, using your name and surname as the payment reference.
The appropriate details for our client holding account will appear when you upload your transfer request on our website.
11. How can I be sure that my funds will be correctly allocated?
If you are using internet banking, it is imperative that you ensure that your funds will clear under your name and surname. If you use your name and surname as the payment reference, we will know that the funds are from you and we can process your transfer as soon as the funds clear.
If the funds will be clearing under a reference other than your own name and surname, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, informing us as to what name the funds should clear under. Following these guidelines will decrease the likelihood of a delay.
12. What are the requirements of a registered money service business?
The law requires us to monitor any unusual or suspicious transactions of any size taking place where we have reason to believe the money is derived from illegal activity. We will report any suspicious international money transfers to the authorities.
The law also requires us to keep full records of all transactions, together with copies of identification provided. We are unable to process any transaction where this information is withheld. Proof of address and proof of funds may be required in certain cases – please see our “know your customer” guidelines for more information.
13. How secure is the site?
Our site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128 bit encryption to protect your transaction details. This 128 bit encryption is the latest and strongest data encryption technique commercially available for securing information between you, our client, and our website.
SSL works by encrypting/scrambling data from our website to your computer. The data is encrypted on our web server and can only be decrypted/unscrambled by the person with the correct decrypt/unscramble key. You can visually verify our site’s use of SSL in two places: The "s" in https in the site’s web address and by the padlock on the left hand side of the address bar.
