When it comes to transferring funds across borders, the process can often seem daunting and complex. At MTFX, we understand the importance of secure and efficient money transfers.

Why does the JPY/CAD exchange rate matter?

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 balloon 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
