Hi thanks @MIROW for sharing Patrick’s original comment.
You’re absolutely right for now our accounts are GBP and so we can only receive GBP into your account. If the bank that you send money from, in this case a Hungarian bank in HUF, converts the amount into GBP before sending then we will be able to receive it. They can send this to your account using your IBAN and BIC which you’ll find in the Account Details section.
If however the sending bank doesn’t handle the conversion we won’t be able to receive and deposit the money to you. In this case the payment will be rejected and returned.
If you invoice your client in EUR and they send a EUR payment to your GBP account we will convert the amount received in to GBP before depositing it to your account on the same day. We convert the EUR received using a rate set for the day – this is based on the global foreign exchange market but is not the real or mid-market rate like our outbound international transfers. This means if you send EUR to your Starling GBP account you will likely receive less GBP than you might expect based on a mid-market calculation.
We would therefore recommend you wait until we have our EUR accounts launched to receive EUR from your client.
