Get a live bank-beating money transfer rate for your chosen currency
Confirm currencies, amounts and recipient - we'll take care of the rest
Our exchange rates are bank-beating and are linked to the live foreign exchange markets. They will update right up until you confirm the money transfer to South Africa, so you can secure a rate you are comfortable with.
The majority of our money transfers to South Africa are completed on the same day. Occasionally certain factors can affect the transfer completion date. We'll keep you updated by email throughout the process.
You can send money to South Africa on our website or mobile apps. Once you've booked your transfer, you can make payment to us by bank transfer or debit/credit card.
The amount you can transfer with XE is unlimited. You can transfer up to $500,000 USD online (or currency equivalent). For larger amounts, you can contact our currency experts and they can guide you through the transfer process over the phone.
