No Cheaper than the banks

Review published ago

Fortunately I only transferred a small cash amount to my Bank in South Africa. But when I compare the costs of doing via the bank SWIFT process or CurrencyFair, I am afraid to say that CurrencyFair works out more expensive. On your converter you claim that if I were to transfer 500 Emirati Dirhams (AED) the receipent (my bank in South Africa) will receive *R400.53 more than the banks would offer through a normal SWIFT process transfer. Well, NOT TRUE. Just last month I transferred 3800 AED to South Africa via the normal banking Forex and my charges were just over R370.00 South African Rands. In this case, I have transferred 500 AED and the charges from the bank is 105.00 AED which is currently R400.00. I am still being charged R25.00 for your service fee and the receipient bank will still take their commission too. So it way exceeds the normal banking process fees. Sorry, but not worth the trouble to use your services. A Rip Off!

When things go wrong..

Review published ago

I've been using CurrencyFair for some years, and have generally been happy. However, that's changed. I set out to move a significant sum of money (via CurrencyFair) from our UK account to our account in the USA, a regular transaction for us. The money should have arrived over two weeks ago, but, as of today, it's still missing. It's due to be returned back to my CurrencyFair account, but no-one can tell me when; the fact that CurrencyFair does not have their own banking relationships but, instead, deal with banks via a third party doesn't help.

Probably not as fast as Blockchain but as cheap!

Review published ago

I heard about Currencyfair from a friend but tried to find a quicker, easier alternative using Blockchain technology through Santander, that is supposed to be the fastest and cheapest way to transfer money abroad. But the receiving bank has not set its system to accept such a high-tech transfer yet. I gave a try to Currencyfair and I realised how easy it is to set up an account and transfer the money. The received amount was absolutely comparable to what I was expected to transfer using Blockchain (I transferred 2000£ in euros and the receiving bank did not charge any additional fee). Very happy with the service and I am planning to use it in the future.
