Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you recommend transferring funds in foreign currencies?
Ensuring funds are transferred in a foreign currency instead of AUD helps to avoid higher transfer costs and fees.

Are there any fees or charges involved?
American Express does not charge a fee for receiving foreign currency. However, international transfers are sometimes subject to correspondent fees and charges by the remitting (sending) or corresponding banks, which, in turn, slightly
reduces the transaction amount.

What exchange rate will be applied?
The exchange rate is determined on the day the funds are received and is subject to market fluctuations.

Why do we add payment notes stating "DO NOT CONVERT TO AUD"?
Without this payment note, your transaction may be subject to an additional currency conversion by your intermediary bank.
