Getting a better exchange rate means more money for you and your recipient – especially on a large transfer.
As such, it's important to compare exchange rates from several services before sending money overseas. In this guide, we'll go through how you can find the Bank of China's rates and how they compare.
What are the Bank of China's foreign exchange rates?
To find out what the exchange rate is to send AUD with the Bank of China, you'll need to either have an account or call and speak to one of its currency specialists. In Australia, the banks generally add around 5% to 10% to the mid-market exchange rate, so you can expect to see something similar here.
A lot of specialist money transfer services, by comparison, will only add a margin of 1% to 2%. Get some quotes below to see how the Bank of China compares to the other options and to the mid-market rate.
Sending money with the Bank of China: What to know
What we like
- Quick RMB transfers. Pre-settled RMB transfers mean you can send money to mainland China almost instantly.
- Schedule transfers. You can set up a transfer online to happen at a future date.
What to watch out for
- Limited options. If you need to deal with a wider range of currencies or countries, the Bank of China might not be suitable.
- Uncompetitive rates. Bank of China takes a margin on exchange rates, while some specialist money transfer services will offer better mid-market rates.
