How does it work

We are the largest, non-bank currency exchange market in Europe. Our users decide on the exchange rates.

Step 01

Choose the exchange type


Transfer exchange

Exchange money by transfer made in e-banking of your bank. You will receive the exchanged amount by return transfer to your second account right away.

Try it when you want to exchange money quickly and receive the exchanged amount to your bank account.

Exchange from the Wallet

The Wallet is your online money box in Walutomat, which allows you to deposit and withdraw funds. You can exchange funds right away, without waiting for a transfer. After the exchange, you can order the transfer of funds to your account at any time.

Try it when you have funds in your Wallet and want to make more than one exchange.

To make an exchange you need two bank accounts (in different currencies)

Example:

You exchange currency for currency, e.g. you deposit PLN to buy EUR.
To avoid being charged by your bank for the currency conversion, you need:

  • an account in the currency which you deposit – in this case PLN
  • an account in the currency which you want to withdraw – in this case EUR
