Receiving international payments

Payments received in a foreign currency will be converted into Sterling and credited into your company’s account. Foreign currency account holders will have the payment converted into the currency the account was opened in.

Electronic transfer

The fastest and most secure way of transferring funds into your account is through an electronic transfer. In order to receive a payment, you will need to provide your customer with the following information:

  • Our name in full - The Co-operative Bank plc
  • Our SWIFT address - CPBKGB22
  • Your account name, IBAN or account number

We will confirm receipt of any payments made through our cross -border payments system, showing the amount received and any deductions made from the original amount requested.


We do not accept foreign currency cheques, including non-sterling traveller’s cheques.
