18 Dec 2023

Are you a Filipino living in Australia who regularly sends money back home to your loved ones? If so, you know how important it is to get the best possible exchange rate for your transfers. 

As a leading online money transfer provider, ACE Money Transfer is committed to helping expats save money when they send money from Australia to Philippines. That's why we're excited to introduce our new feature: exchange rate alerts.

What are Exchange Rate Alerts?

Exchange rate alerts are a way for ACE to notify expats when the exchange rate between the Australian dollar (AUD) and the Philippine peso (PHP) moves in a way that could be beneficial for their transfers. 

This way, expats can time their transfers to get the most value out of their money transfers to the Philippines.

How to Request Exchange Rate Alerts From ACE

Requesting exchange rate alerts is easy. Simply follow these steps:

  • Log in to your ACE Money Transfer account on the website or within the ACE app.
  • Select the "Get Rate Updates" option
  • Enter the amount you typically send and the email address you want to receive alerts.
  • You can even enter a particular value, so when the exchange rate reaches your desired value, you may get an alert.
  • You can submit how often you get the exchange rate alerts, i.e. daily, weekly, monthly.
  • Tap on “Submit”

You can even view the current exchange rates for Australian Dollars to Philippine pesos using the same option.

How Do Exchange Rate Alerts Work?

Once you have requested exchange rate alerts, we will monitor the exchange rate between the AUD and the PHP. If the exchange rate moves in a way that could be beneficial for your transfers, we will send you an email alert. 

This email will let you know the current exchange rate and how much value you could get additional by sending your transfer right now.
