Clients of RoboForex can now use the China UnionPay bank cards for funds withdrawal, the international forex broker announced on its website on January 29.
Until now those cards could only be used for depositing funds to RoboForex trading accounts.
The withdrawals can be made in Chinese yuans, thus avoiding additional calculations and currency conversion. The minimum sum that can be withdrawn is 50 CNY, with a fixed commission of 5 CNY. The maximum amount, withdrawn in one transaction, is 50 000 CNY.
Besides the bank cards of China UnionPay, RoboForex allows withdrawals with Visa/Mastercard cards. Funds can also be withdrawn with electronic payment system WebMoney, Skrill (Moneybookers), FasaPay, Neteller, Qiwi Wallet and Yandex.Money and via bank transfers.
