Starling Bank account receiving USD to GBP account.
Hi I have contacted starling but can't seem to get an exact answer so can anyone help. I want to have money sent from a share dealing account in the USA via swift to my GBP starling account. ( not a business account ) . What I can not seem to understand from starling customer services is what the charges are for the transfer and to exchange the USD to GBP. They have told me so far that there is no charge and they use the master card conversion rates for the currency conversion but then when I read the terms of a UK current account they state that a 2% charge will be applied if receiving in the wrong currency, but they are yet to explain this statement . Their online documentation only states charges for outgoing payments . Can anyone help ?
