  • Limits: Some IMT providers have minimum amounts that you need to meet, others don’t. Weigh up minimum transfer amounts vs percentage rate versus fees to see what suits your budget best.
  • Rates: You may think the tiny difference between rates is menial. Well, Mozo tends to think the contrary. When transferring a large amount, the smallest difference between rates can save you hundreds or thousands, depending on the amount. It certainly adds up when you make regular transfers abroad!
  • Transfer speed: Every IMT provider has their own transfer speed promise. some say immediate, some say 8 days. You’ll hear of everything in between too. Realistically the funds will take probably 3-5 business days to clear before your recipient can use the money you transfer.
  • Fees: You’ll find that some IMT providers including banks will charge anything from zero to a lot to even begin the currency exchange. Work out what works best for you before making a decision.
  • Online vs phone or in person: Online, every time. That is of course, you’re interested in saving money on fees and want to go about your money matters independently. Not to mention the freedom of sitting at your desk at home in your jammies with a cup of herbal tea at 10pm. Your call.
