Does Remitly use the mid-market exchange rate?

The Remitly SGD to USD rate today is 0.72469.

This is -2.7% than the mid market rate. This means that Remitly does not use the mid-market rate, but rather adds a mark-up (an extra fee) to the rate used for transferring money abroad.

The mid-market exchange rate matters because it's the rate banks and money transfer services get when they buy currencies themselves. That makes it a good benchmark to compare when you're checking out the fees charged by different services offering currency conversion and international payments.

Why does the mid-market rate matter?

Why does the mid-market rate matter?

The mid-market exchange rate is the rate which is used when currencies are bought and sold on wholesale markets. That means it’s the rate your bank or international transfer provider gets when they buy and sell currencies themselves.

The mid-market exchange rate isn’t usually passed on to customers sending or converting smaller amounts of currency. Instead, banks and currency services add a markup or margin - an extra fee - to the mid-market rate to calculate the retail exchange rate they offer customers.

Adding a markup to the exchange rate used for international payments is very common. However, it makes it very hard to see exactly what you’re paying for your transfer, as this fee is bundled up into the rate applied rather than transparently displayed. Exchange rate markups vary widely depending on the currency, value of a payment, and the provider itself - around 3% is typical. That doesn’t sound like too much, but it mounts up quickly, and can often cost more than the transfer fee you’re charged. Learn more about mid-market rate here.

How much does Remitly charge for rate exchange?

Currency exchange services, banks and money transfer providers often use exchange rate markups. These fees cover the provider's costs, and allow them to make a profit, they're businesses after all. However, what's tricky is that some companies state that they offer fee free, or 0% commission transfers, when actually they just bundle their fees into their exchange rates. To understand the full costs of your international payment it's important to look at both any upfront transfer fee the provider charges and any extra charges tucked into the rates used.
