Please be aware that the services listed below are best used for larger international transfers and payments (around $3,000 and above). This is because many foreign exchange brokerages can only provide a free service if the transfer amount is higher than a certain amount. If your transfer amount is smaller, you may be charged a flat fee (usually around $10). If you need to send a smaller amount overseas, you should look into using a Money Transfer service for a cheaper alternative. Please make sure that you read the terms and conditions thoroughly.
