Your Currency Choices

American Express® FX International Payments allows you to make overseas payments in over 133 currencies as well as AUD When sending money overseas, you have two options:

  • 1 Foreign Currency Telegraphic Transfer
    Lock in an exchange rate that will apply to your currency wire.

  • 2 AUD Telegraphic Transfer
    FX International Payments sends AUD to your beneficiary’s foreign bank account.

Knowing Your Beneficiary

Does your beneficiary have a AUD bank account or a foreign currency bank account? It can make a difference, so make sure to talk to your beneficiary before you decide which currency you send.

  • For example, if you send AUD to a beneficiary’s Euro-denominated bank account, that payment might be converted from U.S. Dollars into Euros at a rate that you won’t know in advance.
  • Additionally, if the currency sent does not match the currency of the receiving account, there could be delays or extra fees associated with the transaction.
  • Some beneficiaries may prefer to receive AUD at their foreign currency bank account.
TIP:Your options may vary, depending on whether your foreign beneficiary is invoicing you in AUD or foreign currency. Asking for invoices in both currencies may help you to weigh your payment options.
