Fully approved wire payments are found in the Releases tab. When releasing the payment, you will be prompted to accept the FOREX quote provided by Cambridge. The quote is valid for 300 seconds before it expires. The quote includes the following information: 

  • Exchange Rate at the time of payment
  • Settlement Amount (how much you pay)
