How does it work?
Once you've signed up you can book a rate by phone or online 24/7.
All you need to do is...
Book your rate
Once your account is set up all you need to do is tell us how much you want to send, who you want to pay and which currency you want to pay in. Then we'll quote you a rate. Simple!
Send your money
Once you've booked your rate you'll receive an email confirming your trade details. It'll have the payment information so you can send your money to us by bank transfer.
We send it out
Put your feet up. Grab a cuppa.
We'll do the rest - convert your funds and send the money to the account you requested. Done and dusted.
What we offer
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!
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 six months in advance!
You can set up a plan with us so that when we receive your money, we'll convert it quickly, reliably and securely. And you can choose if you want it converted at the rate on the day, or you can lock in a rate making budgeting a whole lot easier.
Send money to Australia
So, you’re looking to transfer money to Australia, or sending money back home from there? You’ve come to the right place – World First will make it easy, plus we’ll save you money.
Maybe you’re buying a new home there and starting a new life in Australia. That’s got us really jealous! We’ll be round for a barbie soon, throw on a sausage for us! Or perhaps you’re going out there to work, and you want to send you hard earned salary back home to your family. Whatever the reason for your currency transfer, we’re here to help.
At World First, we will give you a great exchange rate, all because we take a smaller margin than the banks. Here’s an example of how we could save you money. A client was offered a HKDAUD exchange rate of 0.1376 by their bank. In that case, HKD 1,500,000 would be worth AU $206,400. World First offered them 0.1406, which meant they got AU $210,900. Not to be sniffed at, and the savings you make could be even bigger!
We’ve got a wide range of products and we’ll get you the one that suits you the best. With a spot contract, you can deal right there and then. Buy now, pay now. It really is a simple as that. Or you can go with a forward contract which lets you fix a rate for a point in the future. Buy now, pay later. If the rate should fall in the meantime, it makes no difference. You’re protected, having already agreed an exchange rate. This will help you budget more effectively.
We also offer regular payments for things like mortgages or pensions, and there other products that will also let you benefit if the exchange rate should go in your favour after you’ve agreed a rate in advance.
That’s it! We’re here to save you time and money when you send money to Australia. So Join us today!
Not transferring money to Australia? Never mind - we make money transfers all over the world.
