Fidor AG is one of our funding providers in Europe and a leading digital bank, providing support for EUR funding. Both SEPA deposits and withdrawals via Fidor AG are available as the default option on your account, provided the eligibility requirements are fulfilled.
Fidor AG also offers EUR SWIFT deposits. SWIFT withdrawals are not currently available, so that to withdraw EUR outside of the SEPA zone you will have to use one of our other SWIFT options. Please note that SWIFT deposits have to be sent in EUR and deposits in currencies other than EUR will be rejected by our banking partner. Clients with a Fidor AG bank account may also take advantage of near-instant deposits and withdrawals via this funding option.
