    Request a rate

    If an exchange is not urgent, customers can request a unique exchange rate in the Exchange, different to the live rates available in real-time in our calculator.
  2. Enter the Exchange Queue

    After a rate is set, we work to find somebody to match with you at this rate. The Exchange Queue shows the total amount of currency waiting to be exchanged at each rate by your peers. The rate at the top of the queue is next in line to be exchanged.

    Rate, Set and Match

    An exchange will take place if the best rate available moves to match your rate in the exchange queue. Then you are at the top of the exchange queue. When the exchange takes place, your trade is matched.

Set your own target exchange rate

The CurrencyFair Exchange is where we bring buyers and sellers together online. We host the marketplace, ensure that everything is recorded correctly and that all transactions happen quickly and smoothly. We hold the funds, meaning you can exchange safely with other customers around the world.

If things are quiet, we make sure a match is available in the market for you so you can always get a great exchange rate.

Why set your own rate?

Have some time to spare and think that the rate is going to get better?

Then choose your own exchange rate and wait for someone on the other side of the market to match you. The reason why CurrencyFair is so much cheaper than banks and other money transfer companies is because we can match you with our other users who are also looking for the fairest rate.

Remember: a live exchange rate can go up or down. We cannot guarantee that you will get the rate you choose. However you can amend or cancel your rate at any time before it is matched.
