Don’t pay unnecessary bank fees and charges when you need to pay a bill overseas or transfer money to loved ones. Exchange Now can save you money with a range of simple international money transfer options.


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.


How Exchange Now can help you

We’ll ask you a few questions about your international money transfer and choose from a number of options to suit your needs and get you more value for your money. We take into account things like what value you are sending, where you are sending to, how quickly you need the money to arrive and whether you need the receiver to receive a specific foreign currency amount. With this information we can let you know which option will provide you with value for money, and assist you to complete your transfer in-store as quickly as possible.


Available options

  • 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.
