  • Looking for a UK bank account that I can use to pay bills/direct debits to French companies. Credit Agricole Britline turned me down :(
    Have you looked into a Wise multi currency account? I believe you can setup SEPA (euro) direct debits with it as well as send SEPA transfers in euros with low fees: - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Joint bank account
    If not, I would also recommend Wise. It's a great service, especially if you are going to need to fund the account with both GBP and EUR. Not only can you use Wise to move GBP to EUR, you could also use it as a multi-currency bank account. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • US Bank for non-US citizen/resident (EU citizen)
    Yeah I agree - OP should investigate getting a Wise multi currency account in USD - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • I need to get paid in USD. Can i open a USD bank account here? Or else what can be done here?
    Try this, it's cheaper and easier - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • International payments
    Wise allows you to open a multi-currency account and will give you a "virtual" bank account in the UK that you can use to accept payments. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Is there any way I can cash a US dollar cheque without going through bank? (Online only bank account)
    Be aware that different banks charge different amounts for accepting foreign cheques. If you might receive more of these, see if you can persuade the sender to do a bank transfer, you can use a Wise multi-currency account to receive international transfers for cheap, you even get a US account/routing number to make it easier for the sender. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • America Exchange Student - Am I safe to use Monzo abroad?
    Setup a and then you can setup standing orders and so fourth like a local if that’s something you’re concerned about being able to do. Monzo uses Wise behind the scenes for international transfers. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Trading the tasty way in the UK?
    I believe it didn’t work previously but over the last few months they offer a multi currency account. For each currency you get a set of unique account details. A USD account also has a us based address and is in your name, which I believe was a problem in the past. I certainly has worked with me, opened an account in April.

  • USA Bank account for someone staying outside US
    It's generally very difficult to do that, so your best bet is a multi-currency account through Wise. Also, note that opening an account in the US may expose you to US taxes. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
