Money Transfer

Money Transfer

Filipino remittance make-up 10% of the countries Gross Domestic Product. This implies that we are one of the biggest contributors to our countries’ growing economy. Did you know that you’re losing between 4 to 10% of the money you send back home because of additional charges?

Here’s an example, if you’re transferring AED 1000 back to the Philippines every month, in a year you will transfer AED 12000. Based on a 10% charge, that means you’ve lost up to AED 1200 in a year. Banks and money transfer providers take administrative charge and a bid-offer spread. So what is bid-offer spread?

Bid-offer spread works like this: Supposing you’re sending AED 1000 this month with a rate of Php 14 per AED 1, this means that you’ll be sending Php 14,000 back to the Philippines. With a typical bid-offer spread charge of 5%, instead of getting Php 14,000 pesos, your family in the Philippines will only get Php 13,300, losing Php 700. In a year, you’ll lose up to Php 8400 and this doesn’t include any administrative charges.
