Banks versus money transfer companies

When you need to send money overseas, one of the first transfer options you can choose from is your bank. Most Australian banks will make it easy for you to send money to Cambodia - the problem is that they will usually charge high fees and take more than their fair share of your money through poor exchange rates.

In response to the disappointing deal offered by banks, recent years have seen the emergence of a range of specialist money transfer companies. These providers are experts when it comes to transferring money abroad, and they can usually do so much more cheaply than the banks. Their exchange rates are better, their fees lower, and they offer safe and secure online transfers to destinations around the world.

How do I compare transfer companies when transferring and receiving money via Cambodia?

  • Exchange rates. Check to see how each provider’s exchange rates compare with those of other transfer companies. You should also be aware that exchange rates are only one factor that can influence the cost of transactions - you’ll need to consider transfer fees as well.
  • Transaction fees. You will typically need to pay a fee each time you send a transfer, so compare all the fees each company charges. Sometimes also offer fee-free transactions on large transfers.
  • Transfer methods. Some companies offer online or in-branch transfers only, while others also offer over-the-phone and mobile app transfers.
  • Flexible options. Limit orders and forward contracts allow you to get a better exchange rate, while scheduling regular payments in advance can save you time.
  • Transfer time. Processing times can vary between providers from 10 minutes to several business days.
  • Minimum transfer amounts. Some companies will require you to send a minimum amount each time, or even impose a maximum limit on the amount you can send. Check to see whether those limits will affect your regular transfer needs.
  • Pickup options. Will your recipient collect cash from a transfer agent or receive the transfer into their bank account?
  • Customer service. Check to see how you can access customer service from the provider and when?

What are the steps to send money to Cambodia?

Although different transfer companies have different transfer methods, you will usually need to:

  1. Sign up for an account. The transfer provider will need your full name, your contact information and proof of ID. You can usually sign up for a free account online.
