What is the best way to send money to Japan?

The best way to transfer money to Japan should be secure, fast, and cost-effective. In this regard, the award goes to foreign exchange specialists like MTFX, which provides a competitive CAD/JPY exchange rate. The alternative option of sending money via high-end banks isn't practical due to their hefty fees and slow transfer times.

With MTFX, you'll enjoy a more competitive exchange rate, outperforming banks by 3–5%. Additionally, there's enhanced protection from currency fluctuations as MTFX passes on savings derived from high-volume currency exchanges.

What is a good JPY/CAD exchange rate for sending money?

The CAD/JPY exchange rate is an essential factor to consider when sending money to Japan. If the exchange rate isn’t optimal, you’ll get less for your Canadian dollars. For instance, if the exchange rate is lower by 3 cents, you forfeit 1–3% when you pay supplier invoices or vendor payments.

Suppose you choose a provider with an exchange rate that’s 5 cents lower, your losses surge to 5%. That’s a small fortune that deserves to remain in your pocket. So, if you have been putting up with high exchange rates, it’s time to go into money-saving mode with MTFX.
