At first glance I didn’t find any bonuses or promotions. I finally located the referral promotion tucked away amid the partnership options. Traders at Amana capital will receive a bonus for every successful referral made. The referral program is open to all clients. I didn’t find any additional information when doing this review.
Amana Capital offers a variety of payment options for funding an account. It accepts credit and debit cards, bank transfers, checks and several online payment plans. There is a $6.00 fee charged by Barclays Bank on bank wire transfers and this is deducted from the net amount received.
Amana Financial Services does not charge any fees on debit or credit cards transactions, however a 1.5% fee will be deducted as part of the cost charged by the merchant payment solution provider. Neither is there a charge on Skrill transactions, but here too a 2% fee will be deducted as part of the cost charged by the provider of the service.
These fees are not the accepted industry standard for funding methods.
