Please note that regulatory restrictions require certain types of transactions to be made only in Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). You are encouraged to check the regulation before using this feature.


What Are SWIFT Payments?

SWIFT payments are a type of international transfer sent via the SWIFT international payment network.

The SWIFT international payment network is one of the largest financial messaging systems in the world. Xendit can receive USD currency via SWIFT payment for BNI VAs.

Fees for SWIFT payments

  • The end customer's bank will likely charge a fee to make a SWIFT transfer.
  • In addition, when the money is in transit, correspondent banks in between may also deduct their handling fees. The end customer's bank should be able to advise what additional fees may apply.
