Spot Transfers

A spot transfer is a simple, fast and cost effective way to make an international money transfer. It allows you to benefit from competitive rates at any time.

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say you need to send some currency overseas and you think the market rate is good where it is right now. You can lock in that rate immediately and agree to exchange your currency for another within two days. The rate you lock in is called the spot rate.  The date that you perform the transfer is called the spot date.

Forward Contracts

If you need to transfer money on a set date in the future, a forward foreign exchange contract can lock in today’s rate, for payment at a later date.

Here’s how it works:

  • A forward contract locks in your rate in advance
  • You have between two days and 12 months to settle
  • You do not need to pay the full amount until the delivery date, which is the date you have chosen for settlement
  • Forward contracts protect you from market fluctuations
  • The rate at which you send or receive currencies is called the forward foreign exchange rate
  • Minimum amount for a forward contract is $30,000

Limit Orders

Because you can’t monitor the market 24 hours a day, you can sometimes miss out on the best rates. Placing a limit order with MoneyGram means you can instruct us to act for you if your target rate is triggered – even if you are asleep!

Here’s how it works:

  • You can place your limit order with us at virtually any time, we are available 24 hours a day Monday – Friday to speak with you and take your order
  • When your desired rate is triggered we will contact you to let you know
  • Limit orders are valid for anywhere between now to 6 months
  • Minimum amount for a limit order is $30,000
  • Once an order is triggered,  it is binding

When you place your order, you will need to tell one of our experienced online dealers:

  • The currency in which you wish to send and receive money 
  • How much money you want to purchase
  • The rate at which to place your limit order
  • How much time the order is valid for

Regular Payments*

Most of us have regular payments that roll in every month, remembering to pay them on time is a hassle, and when you also need to exchange currencies it can become expensive too. That’s why we offer our regular payments service to help our clients stay in control of their finances.

Here’s how it works:

Register with MoneyGram and one of our highly trained customer service operators can set up a payment plan to suit your needs. Our payment plans can help you manage:

  • Mortgage payments
  • Household bills
  • Family Support
  • School fees
  • Rental payments
  • Savings repatriation
  • Foreign salary transfers
  • Debt repayments
  • Pension payments

We offer two regular payments services:

Fixed regular payments

This service is ideal for payments that are fixed and do not change every month. We lock in your exchange rate up front; this removes the risk of losing money from exchange rate fluctuations. You can use this service for payments such as school fees and mortgage repayments that are fixed.

Non Fixed Payments: 

This service is ideal for payments that are not fixed and vary from month to month. Our non-fixed plans do not lock in the exchange rate up front and provide flexibility for payments that vary such as bills, online purchases or sending money home or abroad.
