The mid-market rate is the current average and official exchange rate of a currency. It’s called the mid-market rate because it’s the middle of the buy and sell prices found on the global currency markets at any given time.
To look at how much you’re losing to exchange rates, you can compare the quoted rate with the current mid-market rate. If there’s a 5% difference, it’s almost like paying a 5% fee on the money transfer on top of all the other costs.1
