International Money Transfers
Don’t pay unnecessary bank fees and charges when you need to pay a bill overseas or transfer money to loved ones.
What about my bank?
When you send money overseas through your bank, you are likely to pay a range of fees and receive a pretty unfavorable exchange rate. When you transfer funds into an overseas bank account, you will pay a fee to send the money (on average approximately $22), a fee to receive the money (depending on the overseas bank charges) and receive the exchange rate set by your bank at the time you transfer the money. The fee that is charged by the bank that is receiving the money often comes out of the amount that you have transferred, leaving you at risk of paying too little to the receiver.
- Western Union Money in Minutes: whilst not the cheapest option, this method of transfer will get funds to a person overseas within 5 minutes.
- Western Union Direct to Bank: deposit money into an overseas bank account and get a great exchange rate and pay NO receiver fees.
- HiFX: for the more frequent sender, set up an account and receive extremely competitive exchange rates and premium service.
