ACE money transfer has been in operation across Europe since 2002 and offers a safe and secure way for you to send money from Ireland to more than 50 countries. You’ll typically save money with low fees and strong exchange rates.
Many online transfer services limit you to bank transfers only. With ACE money transfer, you can pay by bank account, credit or debit card. You also have the options of your recipient receiving your money via cash pickup, bank account and mobile wallet.
There are no minimum or maximum transfer limits, and with the different payment and send options available, it could be a good alternative to using a bank offering the same service.
You can typically get exchange rates that are close to the mid-market rate, and which ACE money transfer claims “are tough to beat”.
ACE money transfer makes its money by making the exchange rate slightly weaker than the mid-market rate and by the fees it charges.
These fees vary depending on how much you plan to send, where it’s being sent, how it’s sent and finally how it’s received. For instance, you can expect to pay less in fees for a bank to bank transfer rather than allowing your recipient to pick up the cash.
There’s a helpful transfer calculator available on the website’s homepage, giving you an estimate of what the fee is likely to be and how much your recipient can expect to receive.
There’s also live chat in case you have other questions around your money transfer.
