Global account

Global Account is an Airwallex collection capability that works like a bank account. It provides you with an account number that allows you to collect funds from various platforms such as PayPal, Amazon, or your merchants via SWIFT and/or the domestic payment method.

For domestic payments, you can get an account in:

  • Australia: AUD, NZD, SGD, CAD
  • United States: USD, NZD
  • Great Britain: GBP, CHF, SGD
  • Japan: JPY
  • Hong Kong: USD, HKD, CNY
  • And for SWIFT payments, find the full list of 30 currencies here.

Global Accounts collect the payments for you and transfer them all to your Airwallex Wallet. From the wallet (where your money is held), you’ll be able to send payments.


Your Wallet is the main store of funds in your account that provides valuable information about the funds you hold and your recent transaction history. Your account will include Wallets for each currency that you hold with Airwallex.

Borderless Card

Airwallex Borderless Card is a virtual multi-currency debit card issued by Visa that allows you to make payments in multiple foreign currencies and pay for goods and services both online and in-store. Physical cards will be available in the UK soon.

  • 0% international card fees. No more surprise foreign transaction fees on expenses like software subscriptions or marketing. Reinvest every dollar back into growth.
  • Pay directly with your multi-currency balance. Expenses are charged directly from your multi-currency wallet, eliminating unnecessary FX conversions where possible.
  • Auto-convert at the best FX rates for international card transactions. Even when you don’t have the needed currency balance, Airwallex automatically converts your funds at its market-leading FX rates.

Bottom line

The main criteria for determining the overall assessment are the pricing of the services, onboarding difficulty, support quality (customer service), and service popularity. In terms of the vast amount of reviews provided by Finscanner’s partner TrustPilot, the overall customer experience in working with Airwallex is highly rated. The noteworthy advantage of Airwallex is minimal transaction fees and competitive exchange rates, which make it a truly fit money-saving option for a business of any size needing to make regular overseas payments.
