What we offer

Spot contracts

So called because they’re done ‘on the spot’, this allows you to secure a rate and make your payments straight away. This is the ideal option if you’re a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible!

Forward contracts

Like to plan ahead? Then forward contracts are for you. They allow you to lock in an exchange rate now and make your payment later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to two years in advance!

Regular payments

If you need to send money abroad on a regular basis, you’ll want to set up automated payments. You can arrange to do this quickly and easily with us over the phone or online.


Around 200,000 Filipinos now call Australia home, with many of you still needing to transfer money to the Philippines for family reasons, property costs or even for special occasions like weddings. We know that every dollar counts and our exchange rates means you’ll have more money after your transfer of PHP or USD. We also think you’ll really enjoy our service!

If you want more certainty on your transfer amount, we can even help you lock in a rate for up to two years through a forward contract.

So, if you want your PHP to go further, why not join World First to see how much you could save?
