MoneyGram Money Transfer offers a selection of services to tailor your transfers to you.

Spot Transfers

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

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say you need to send some currency overseas and you like the market rate 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 help you save by locking in market leading rates, for payment at a later date. This can protect you from market fluctuations.

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
  • 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*

No one can monitor the market 24 hours a day – even the most dedicated dealers need their sleep! This means you can sometimes miss out on the best rates if they are triggered late at night, or when you are busy. Placing a limit order with MoneyGram means you can instruct us to act for you if your target rate is triggered – even if it’s 2 o’clock in the morning!

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 let you know
  • Limit orders are valid for anywhere between now and 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 us:

  • 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

Remembering to stay on top of monthly payments can be a hassle, and when you also need to exchange currencies it can become costly too. We offer a regular payments service to help our clients stay in control of their finances.

Here’s how it works:

Register with MoneyGram and we can set up a payment plan to suit your individual needs. Our payment plans can help you manage:

  • Mortgage payments
  • Household bills
  • Supporting your family back home
  • 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 perfect 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 fixed payments such as tuition fees or rental payments.

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 online purchases, household expenses and bills or sending money home.
