Get your USD account details

Open your USD account online and receive a local US account number and branch code. Share these details with your clients and customers in the US and start receiving payments in US dollars via local bank networks. You can also link your USD account to eCommerce platforms such as Amazon and Shopify.

Spend in US dollars

Once you have funds in your account, you can spend them using Airwallex Borderless Cards, or transfer them to your recipient’s bank account. Use your US dollars to pay suppliers and employees in the US and elsewhere efficiently, without being subject to needless currency exchange fees.

Convert currencies at market-beating rates

Airwallex gives you access to the interbank exchange rate (sometimes known as the mid-market rate). That means that if you need to convert currencies, you’ll enjoy market-leading foreign exchange rates no matter the transaction size. You can also hedge against currency exchange risk by only converting currencies when the exchange rate is favourable.
