Why Close an FBS Account?

Before we dive into the steps to close an FBS account, let's first understand why someone might want to close an FBS account in the first place.

FBS Account Closure Process

Now that we've discussed potential reasons why someone might want to close their FBS account, let's discuss the actual process for closing an FBS account.

Contact Your FBS Account Manager

Before you make any final decisions to close your FBS account, it is essential to contact your FBS account manager to discuss the reasons behind deciding to close the account. Likewise, the account manager could provide you valuable suggestions and solutions for any concerns that could cause you to close the account. They can, also, help you understand your options more clearly and address any concerns you may have about your decision.

Withdraw Your Funds

Once you've discussed and received confirmation from your FBS account manager to proceed with closing your account, you'll need to withdraw your funds.

  1. Log in to your FBS account and review your account balance.
  2. If you have any open positions or pending orders, you will need to close them all.
  3. Next, click on the "Withdrawal" button or "Money Withdrawal" tab.
  4. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw and select a payment method for withdrawal
  5. Follow the withdrawal instructions and complete the process.

FBS accepts withdrawal requests via major payment systems such as Bank Wire Transfer, Visa and Mastercard, Neteller and Skrill, Web Money, and Perfect Money, among others.

Submit the Withdrawal Request

Once you've completed your withdrawal request, FBS will be notified that you want to withdraw your funds. The process to get your funds can vary based on the payment method you selected. For example, e-wallet transfer options (such as Neteller or Skrill) usually process faster than bank transfers. The withdrawal process, according to the withdrawal options chosen for the account, may take 2-7 business days.

Submit the Closure Request

The next step after submitting your withdrawal request is your account closure request submission. If you are unable to find where to submit your account closure request on the FBS platform, you can contact the support team for further assistance.

If you're closing your account because of issues with the platform, trading mechanisms, or other problems, FBS requires you to file a complaint with their Customer Service personnel. You can also provide details to remedy the situation or seek your solution.

Follow Up and Ensure Account Closure

The final step of the FBS account closure process is to make sure the account is closed. Ensure that you receive an email confirmation from FBS; acknowledging the successful account closure request submission. If for some reason, some funds are still remaining in your account, reconcile the balance with the previous withdrawal request, and submit it again.
