    nice one…. but does it mean that you can receive money (bank transfer) from any part of the world once the bank has a Swift code?

      Yes, but only for international wire transfer. You must also have an account with the bank because the payment will be deposited into your bank account.

        yes I get it…. a friend of mine has done that before with FirstBank…. he received payment from binary.com via bank wire so I thought it doesn’t apply to all banks……. Thanks for the update.
