Understanding the real exchange rate
Reak Exchange Rate?
Banks and other providers often set their own, unfriendly exchange rates. That means that you pay more than you need to.
If you want to know the USD-NGN rate today, compare the real, mid-market exchange rate with what you find on Google or Reuters to understand how much you are actually paying for your transfer.
When a money transfer provider says they offer fee free transfers or 0% commission, you should probably look at the exchange rate they offer.
Usually, they add a mark-up to the rate, which makes your international money transfer expensive.
How much does it really cost?
How much a transfer really costs is made up of two things - the fees, and the exchange rate. So make sure you check both.
To see whether you're getting a good deal, look at how much of your money arrives on the other side.
