SWIFT International Wire Transfer is a payment method to due to be added shortly after v1.7.3.

SWIFT is a network that allows financial institutions worldwide to send and receive payments internationally. This article discusses SWIFT transfers between Bisq users.

SWIFT is the industry standard for international payments and supports multiple currencies. Users with access to the SWIFT network through their bank or financial institutions can send and receive payments from any other Bisq user worldwide that also has access to the SWFIT network.

SWIFT transfers do usually incur bank fees for both the sender and receiver, payment times can also be slow (up to 7 days), but payments are secure and almost completely irreversible.
