Registration process

To register on Headway, a trader needs to enter their name, email address, password, country, and phone number in the sign-up form.

The email address needs additional confirmation via an email sent to a trader’s inbox after submitting the form.

Users can also register with their Facebook and Google accounts.

Verification

Verification is not necessary for trading with Headway. A trader can deposit with digital payment methods without verifying their identity. Still, to deposit with bank cards and withdraw the profits via any payment method, traders need to pass verification. 

Users may upload their government-issued passport, ID, or driver’s license and submit the request in the Personal Area. It may take a few hours to finish verification.

Deposits and withdrawals 

On Headway, managing money is more secure and convenient. Clients make balance operations in the US dollar, euro, and local currencies. 

To ensure even better protection, users may deposit a wallet first. A wallet works like a buffer between the traders’ deposit and trading account. It protects money from exposure to the market. If that option is not needed, users can deposit their trading accounts directly.

Headway provides various payment methods for its clients: e-wallets, QR codes, bank transfers, crypto, and bank cards. 

The payments are processed quickly: Money comes to the client’s accounts almost immediately. Bank transfers may take more time due to the additional document checking and operating capacities of a bank.

Clients pay no commissions for their deposits and withdrawals. The company covers all transaction expenses.

Support

Headway Customer Care team is online 24/7 to support users from anywhere in the world. They consult clients in the Care Bot chat on the website and via email care@hw.site. Customer Care specialists speak many languages and answer quickly. 

Headway provides informational support in its Help Center.

Promo & bonuses

When the bonus period is over, the profits are saved in the Personal Area and available for withdrawal after fulfilling the company’s requirements. There is no time limit for users to withdraw the bonus profits.

Affiliate program

The Headway multilevel partner program runs from day one. The broker offers the highest commissions in the market – up to 42% of the broker’s income. Partners bring in new clients to Headway, and the broker pays its partners for that.

The program has a status system for participants to grow their network together with their income. The commission withdrawals are instant and bear no additional fees. 

Trading education

Headway remembers about beginners. People new to trading can join a beginner course on Forex. 

The course was developed by Nour Hammoury, a world-class trader and investor, and a guest writer for Wall Street Journal, Nasdaq, and Marketwatch. Forex for beginners course has five lessons and five tests that are free to take. 

There are more educational materials from experts on the broker’s website and social media.
