Andrew Ford and Rosa-Clare Willis

Co-founders, Crockd

“Airwallex has been a game changer for us. I cannot recommend these guys enough. The forex services are super efficient and super competitive. The customer service is not gold-plated, it's solid gold. One of the best eCommerce services for merchants we have come across since Paypal hit the scene 20 years ago."

George van Dyck

“Airwallex has made it really easy to pay our suppliers in any currency. We have not only saved $10,000 each month, but our suppliers now get their payments faster and in-full. We receive a notification once it’s dispatched, and it eliminates the worry factor of where our money is at. This is important for us to keep building a strong relationship with our suppliers.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I open a US dollar account in Australia?

If you use one of the traditional banks, you may have the option of opening a US dollar account in Australia. But many accounts come with proof of address requirements, minimum opening balances and take a clip on currency exchange.

With Airwallex, you can open a US dollar bank account in just minutes, and you won’t need a US address to do so.

How does a USD account work?

Your Airwallex USD account is much like a traditional bank account. You can send, hold and receive USD and view your account details and currency balance. The benefit of having an Airwallex USD account is that it won’t force you to convert currency unnecessarily.

When you do need to convert or withdraw funds, you’ll only pay a small 0.5% or 1% FX margin above the interbank rate.

Opening a US business account is easier with Airwallex. You can do it all online, right now, straight from your browser. Simply fill out this form, get your business verified, and you’ll have access to all of our borderless business account features.
