Confusing, time consuming and expensive are just some of the words that can be used to describe international payments. If you’re looking to save time and money when sending or receiving international money transfers, whether you are an individual or business, independent foreign exchange broker Currency Index’s new resource can help.
Brought to you by award-winning industry experts, the recently launched site www.international-payments.co.uk helps clients make international payments for the first time providing useful information sorted by currency and country, to help overseas property buyers navigate the field of foreign payments with ease.
As well as the latest market rates for most major currencies, www.International-Payments.co.uk allows users to learn how to avoid the many pitfalls associated with overseas transfers. Sending money traditionally through banks has long been fraught with delays, high charges and poor exchange rates, but with a useful FAQ page and information on new criteria such as the European SEPA standard, first-time users will be able to see at a glance the different types of transfers that are available as well as pick up money-saving information on exchange rates and charges in the UK and abroad.
Robin Haynes, Managing Director of Currency Index comments,
“With the launch of International Payments, we are putting power back into the hands of consumers, who will be able to do their homework about an overseas payment and make sure they get good value for money instead of falling foul of uncompetitive rates and hidden charges from banks. For too long, currency transfers have been a cash cow for high street banks who rely on customers’ ignorance when it comes to the speed and cost that should be expected when making overseas payments.”
The new site also contains information on regulation in the currency industry and invites users to request a free no-obligation quote for their transfer from Currency Index by simply submitting their details at the top of the page. This will then put a user in touch with a specialist at the FSA-Authorised UK currency company who will be on hand to help with their international payments, whether regular or one-off, and large or small.
International Payments also carries a daily news blog with the latest jargon-free currency news, to help consumers understand what is affecting exchange rates – information which could save them even more money if they buy or sell their currency at the right time.
The site, which is free to use and does not require any registration or personal details is the perfect resource for those looking to make the right decisions when it comes to international payments.
