Do you want to send money between Canada and the USA? Our online money exchange is the ideal solution for you if:

You’re located in Canada but have a salary in USD:

Globalization has made it easier than ever for individuals in other countries to work for companies abroad. What’s more, it’s becoming more and more common. No matter if they’re working for an United States employer or freelancing for one, no one wants to lose their hard-earned money because of unfair exchange rates and heavy fees. To give you some context, imagine you make a 50k salary per year. By choosing to use traditional foreign exchange providers like banks or some counters, you could be losing upwards of $2,000 from currency exchange fees.

01

You purchase American stocks from Canada:

If you’ve researched enough to know that there’s a decent advantage in buying US stocks, odds are you’ve researched other currency methods as well. Maybe that’s even why you’re reading this right now!

With us, you can have a new opportunity to get the best out of your invested profits. Before now, the “competitive option” for currency exchange meant converting your CAD to USD and vice versa using services like Questrade, which charges 1.5-1.99% both ways (better at least than banks, which ate up about 2.5%). But now, you can use Remitbee Currency Exchange and receive zero fees at all.

Small time trading of only $100 in your lifetime may not warrant the switch—it’ll only save you roughly 4 dollars — but the moment you begin investing in the thousands, your losses from just fees begin to exponentially steepen.

Here are some Questrade fees you should consider:
- US stocks worth $1000: That’s a potential loss of 40 CAD in profit.
- US stocks worth $50,000: Losses grow to around 2,000 CAD.

You’re cashing in tuition as an international student:

Whether you’re a Canadian student studying in the United States or an American studying in Canada, you’ll need to convert between the currency of your bank account and the currency of your tuition. With Canada's average tuition fees for international students during 2020-2021 being around 32,019 CAD, the losses from bad currencies rates will only add to your worries as a student.

It’ll be almost $1200 USD lost per year, just because the currency exchange is being done through a traditional institution like your bank (this estimate is based on March 4, 2021’s exchange rate for when you convert USD to CAD or convert CAD to USD).

With Remitbee, international currency exchange will no longer be something you need to worry about.

03

You buy real estate over the border:

If you’re buying property across the border because you travel seasonally like a snowbird and want a place to go when winter starts to chill the air, or if you want to earn some good money from investing in properties in your neighboring country, one of the most essential decisions you’ll commit to is deciding how to prevent a clever third party from profiting too much off your sale.

With the average house price in Canada being around 531,000 CAD in 2020, with Remitbee Currency exchange, you could be saving over $9,000 USD and also prevent banks and other financial institutions from profiting off you.
