Fees

Method Fees
Debit Card FOREX.com does not charge any fees for incoming card deposits. Your card-issuing bank may charge you a cash transaction fee if it treats your transaction as a cash transaction.
If you deposit funds from abroad, you may be charged a cross-border fee or currency conversion fee by your issuing bank.
Wire Transfer A $25 fee is charged within the US, $40 for international wires (including Canada). There are no fees for withdrawals greater than $10,000.
As well, your bank or an intermediary bank may charge additional fees for incoming transactions.

Withdrawal Procedure

Method Withdrawal Procedure
Debit Card A small number of credit cards (including a few from MasterCard and Visa) will not allow us to pay funds back to your card. If you are using one of these cards, you will be notified when you attempt to make a withdrawal. If this is the case, we can arrange for your funds to be paid back to the bank account of your choice.
To minimize the risk of card fraud, we may also request some documentation from you before the bank transfer can be processed.
You can withdraw money to any of your registered payment cards, but the card has to have already made a successful deposit. There are no fees for withdrawals back to a payment card.
Wire Transfer Funds that are over the net deposit can be returned via Wire Transfer once the bank account has been verified.
After submitting the withdrawal request, we will require a valid bank statement to verify the bank account.


*If the balance is lower than $100, the minimum amount for withdrawal is the full remaining balance.
