Wire Bank Transfer

What are Bank Wire Transfers?

The Bank Wire Transfer allows you to make a fund transfer in EUR or GBP from your bank account to your Stars Account. The currencies available to you depend on your registered country.

You can make the transfer online at your bank's website, by telephone banking, by mailing/faxing the details to your bank or by visiting your bank in person.

How can I make purchases using Bank Wire Transfer?

When you click on ‘Cashier’ and then on ‘Make a Deposit’, you will see an option to use Bank Wire Transfer. Click on the Bank Wire Transfer button and follow the instructions provided.

If your transfer form does not have space for the reference number provided, place it in front of your name. Omitting the reference number may result in payment delay or non-receipt.

It is important that you contact us for each subsequent Bank Wire Transfer that you wish to make, in order to get a new unique one-time reference number. Reusing reference numbers may result in a payment delay or non-receipt.

Please note: We do not allow your Bank Wire Transfers to be made via a third-party. This is due to anti-money laundering regulations. You may be charged all banking and administrative costs to return any such payment.

The transfer may take up to 5 business days to be credited to your Stars Account. Once your account is credited, you will be sent a confirmation email.

What are the deposit limits for Bank Wire Transfer?

Please visit the cashier for your current deposit limits.

How does the exchange rate conversion work?

We use the prevailing mid-market rate provided by XE (plus a small fee if applicable) to convert your deposits to your account currency. For additional information, please read our Real Money Transaction Processing and Currency Conversion Terms and Conditions.

What will it cost me to use Bank Wire Transfer?

Wire fees from your bank and intermediary bank (if applicable) will apply. Please ensure that you clearly instruct your bank to deduct any transaction fees associated with the wire remittance. We will only honour charges applied by the receiving bank.

Please consider the available currencies in your account, and the choice of currency you wish to make the request in carefully before you initiate your transfer request.
