Currensea launches product for small businesses

The new debit card enables small businesses to make international transactions through their existing bank account without any bank charges.  

In Brief:

  • The Mastercard offers 16 interbank currencies, including the South African Rand and Thai Baht, which no other UK provider currently offers fee-free. 

  • Its low £5 a month fee is competitive with leading challenger banks.
