Questions/
Answers

What service is offered by b-sharpe?

b-sharpe is an online currency exchange and international transfer service who offers exchange rates to SMEs and individuals which banks normally reserve for large international groups and their largest customers.

Conducting foreign exchange transactions with b-sharpe costs our customers between five and ten times less than with their traditional bank.

Customers can conduct their foreign exchange transactions using our multi-currency platform or by telephone.

b-sharpe's SME clients are composed of importing and exporting companies who, for example, purchase raw materials, sell internationally or purchase products and services in foreign currencies.

Why is b-sharpe cheaper than banks when it comes to foreign currency exchange?

Three distinct advantages make b-sharpe cheaper:

  • While individually, our clients are subject to market and banking commissions, we pool their volumes and are therefore able to rebalance the power relationship in their favour.
  • Professional skills at your service: b-sharpe's team is composed exclusively of foreign currency market and web professionals who have direct access to trading rooms and therefore access to the best available exchange rates.
  • Fixed costs: b-sharpe has developed a platform which allows the same manager to handle your operations from start to finish, whereas a bank would involve several departments and as many staff members for the same transaction. We reduce our fixed costs and pass them on to our customers: there are no transaction fees*, no opening fees and no account maintenance fees. There are many additional costs that our customers are more than happy not to pay because they conduct their transactions through b-sharpe.

* b-Sharpe charges a transfer fee of 5 Swiss francs (CHF) per transaction if less than 5,000 Swiss francs (CHF) or its equivalent. No fees are charged if the transaction exceeds 5,000 Swiss francs (CHF).

These unit charges do not constitute b-Sharpe's remuneration. We're convinced that no matter how much the amounts change, our service saves our customers money.

What is the exchange rate that's used by b-sharpe?

For each of its transactions, b-sharpe uses the real-time interbank exchange rate at the time at which b-sharpe receives the funds. Our platform is continuously connected to the major players in the foreign exchange market.

Through our multi-currency platform, your SME is guaranteed to receive the most attractive exchange rates which are closest to the interbank market.

Which currencies are handled by b-sharpe?

b-sharpe offers more than 20 currencies for your future foreign exchange transactions, the main ones being Swiss francs (CHF), euros (EUR), dollars (USD), pounds sterling (GBP) and Japanese yen (JPY).
