Comparing a bank and non-bank money transfer service
Currency availability will be a determining factor in your comparison of who to use to send funds. We’ve compared a bank and a money transfer provider to give you a snapshot of the deal you’re likely to receive from different institutions.

Rates are indicative and subject to change. Major banking institutions may not let you transfer to a Moroccan account. You’ll need to check with your lending institution to see if they allow you to do this.
As can be seen in this example, the first service charges a fee almost $40 less than the second service, but the second service offers a better exchange rate. All together the $40 in extra fees sees the second recipient lose out on almost MAD 300 in fees, which offsets the MAD 10 lost in exchange rates.
How do I compare companies if you want to send money to Morocco?
Exchange rates. In basic terms, this is how much money you get when you convert Australian dollars to Moroccan Dirham. Exchange rates differ greatly between international payment providers. You can view the applicable foreign exchange rate on the provider’s website before you get a quote.
Collection. An important consideration for both the sender and the receiver. How can the recipient access the money you’ve sent them? Some providers allow you to send money directly to an international bank account, other providers send the money to a local merchant for the recipient to collect; while some providers let you do both.
Fees and charges. How much will it cost you to send money to Morocco? There may be a charge applied to the sender for the international transfer in addition to fees to receive the money. Some providers will waive transfer fees, but they make their money through an inflated foreign exchange rate.
Transfer time. How long will it take before the money clears in the Moroccan account?
Minimum transfer. This is pretty straight forward, what’s the smallest amount of money you can send to Morocco? Some providers have no minimum transfer limit, some providers have a minimum transfer of $500, for example; and other providers have no minimum transfer amount but will charge you a fee if you want to send under a certain amount.
Customer service. An often overlooked point of consideration but an important factor to consider, what’s the provider’s customer service team like? Do they offer a 24/7 service? Being able to speak to a representative is important if something goes wrong when you send money to Morocco.
