Looking for the Best Ways to Send Money Internationally?

There are two main options if you’re planning to move money from your Canadian bank account to a foreign one. You can do it through your bank or a specialist provider. Choosing your provider carefully could save you money, time, and a lot of hassle.

Banks and Traditional Financial Institutions

Many people naturally consider their bank when sending money abroad. The only issue is that banks don’t specialize in international payments. Instead, they’re the go-to guy if you need a new bank account or mortgage or want to withdraw/deposit cash.

Going to the bank for international transfers is like going to a Mexican restaurant and ordering a pizza. They might accommodate you, but your needs won’t be at the top of the menu.

If you need specialty service, your best option is a specialist provider like MTFX.

The Magic of MTFX

Once upon a time, sending money abroad was a complicated, expensive, and lengthy task. People had no option but to deal with hidden charges and laborious, manual paperwork.

But then the market rapidly evolved when specialist money transfer operators like MTFX emerged and started differentiating themselves from their competitors with attractive FX costs and low, transparent fees.

From the start, our goal has always been to attack the high costs that traditional financial institutions charge. We do this by helping customers understand the real cost of overseas transfers through transparent pricing.

For over 25 years, we have succeeded in disrupting the international money transfer market. We make magic happen on slimmer margins because we have made FX and global payments our sole business function and core strength.

Our clients can now enjoy faster, cheaper, and value-added foreign money transfer services thanks to our efforts.

Real Exchange Rates - Real Value for your Money

Navigating exchange rates is trickier if you’re dealing with banks. That's because banks tend to charge the highest fees they can get away with, which often means built-in hidden costs within the exchange rate you get.

For example, your bank might offer a no-fee international money transfer, but all they have done is move the costs from one hand to another. You’re still overpaying because of the high exchange rate markup.

This exchange rate markup is the difference between the mid-market exchange rate and the rate offered, and your bank pockets the profits. At MTFX, we don’t formulate our exchange rates. Instead, we use the fair, mid-market exchange rate – the real or truest exchange rate.

So, trust us when we say our exchange rates beat the bank every time. We outshine the banks because we trade large quantities of currency. Hence, we can still offer the best possible exchange rates and stay afloat.
