Things that you should know:

Most forex brokers offer deposit and withdrawal services via the same payment system. It means that you can only withdraw your money using the same payment system that you have used for making a deposit.

 

Choose your payment system carefully and pay attention to the important points below before deciding which payment system you want to use:


  • What is the minimum amount of money you can deposit or withdraw?

  • How long will the system process your deposit/withdrawal request?

  • How long will it take for the money to be transferred into your account?

  • Is there any commission for the offered services? If yes, how much? Is it covered by the broker or not?

 

Even though the process of depositing and withdrawing funds sounds trivial, you’d better avoid any problems in the process so you won’t miss any trading opportunities! Good luck!
