UBS Pay Worldwide

UBS Pay Worldwide offers Corporate and Institutional Clients with international businesses a possibility to execute payments in around 130 different currencies all over the world out of your existing banking relationship and account with us.

Using your existing current accounts with UBS in CHF, EUR, USD or GBP you can instruct us in your exotic currency payment. UBS will debit your existing account, exchange the equivalent into the instructed currency and send the payment to the Beneficiary Bank, which will credit the amount to the beneficiary’s account without additional conversion (thus no loss out of conversion).


UBS FX-EQUI gives you the opportunity to instruct us to pay in local currency to the beneficiary, by defining the amount to be debited on your account. By doing so, UBS will convert the payment for you and pay the equivalent amount in local currency to the beneficiary.

An exact amount is booked in the currency of your account with information of the equivalent amount paid, making it easier for you to optimize your cash management and avoid any additional conversion costs on the beneficiary side.

UBS global

You can use an order form to make payments all over the world without a payment slip – in Swiss francs or in foreign currencies.

Standing orders

A standing order lets you transfer recurring payments for fixed amounts to the same recipients abroad. It‘s ideal for easy and transparent processing of payments to creditors or salary payments.
