USA ACH payments to a UK Monzo account

First time poster and not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question - please point me in the right direction if you have any recommendations.

I only want to know if I can receive ACH payments from a United States employer to my UK Monzo account.

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

ACH payments can’t be made in the UK, Eurozone, or anywhere else outside the United States. The ACH network is a US payments network only.

You can’t. I think a TransferWise account would be your friend here - you get an account which has US ACH details as well as the UK one. I can’t think of any others who offer this.

Thanks.

I’m already getting paid into a UK (mainstream) bank account via ACH but the currency exchange fees and loos of money is huge, so looking to find an alternative way.

Are you a contractor? Starling offer USD accounts for businesses but Transferwise is probably your best bet

Wise is something worth looking into. You can have a debit card with U.K. and US bank details and transfer the money between them. You’d need to be sure it can accept ACH payments, though.

I work for a NGO and get paid out of the US office. So I am on the books as an employee but based in the UK.

I will checkout Wise.

Thanks

Thanks. I will check out Wise and see if they accept ACH payments.
