Expert review

This business account could suit you if you get paid in different currencies. You can hold 11+ foreign currencies, including AUD, USD, EUR and GBP and make payments directly in these currencies to avoid currency conversion fees. You'll get account details for these different currencies too, so it's like having a local account.

You can also integrate your account to online global marketplaces including Amazon and eBay, to seamlessly get paid by your international customers in their default currency.

One thing to keep in mind with this account is that Airwallex is not a bank, so the money you keep in your account isn't guaranteed by the Australian Government under the Bank Deposit Scheme. Airwallex is, however, regulated by ASIC and has an Australian Financial Services License.
