Okanagan Currency Exchange Calculations

First things first, check out our CAD to USD calculator. Through it, you’ll see that we go above and beyond what banks or exchange counters supply and provide our users with the competitive exchange rates they actually want. We’re transparent about it, so you know where the exchange rates are coming from, and we don’t lie about fees, because we don’t have any!

A Converter for All Your Currency Needs:

For the need to convert your salary:

A good portion of employees in Canada are actually employed by American companies. This means that their gig, contract, freelance, or other work may be charged as a USD salary. And if that’s the case for you, you’ll need to convert it.

To help you understand the importance of choosing the right convert for your currency exchange needs, let’s create some context. Let’s say you earn a 50k salary per year you need to convert from USD to CAD. With Remitbee, you save $2,000. That’s $2,000 other foreign exchange converters would actually take from you through currency exchange fees.


For the need to buy stocks:

Many IPOs only accept purchases of stocks in the currency the company operates in. Which means Canadian investors who want to purchase U.S. stocks need to do so with USD, and it may also mean that profits from those stocks come back to investors in that same currency.

So money needs to be converted to go in, and potentially to come back into your pocket too. Questrade would charge you 1.5% to 1.99% for converting that CAD to USD or vice versa, both ways. A bank would charge 2.5% in comparison, and Remitbee? We wouldn’t charge you a cent.

So you decide. Would you rather lose 40 CAD converting $1,000 worth of American stocks and 2,000 CAD from $50,000 worth? Or would you rather lose nothing with Remitbee?


For the need to pay tuition:

Both Canadian students in the U.S. and American students in Canada have to pay tuition using the currency of the country they are studying in. That means big conversions between CAD and USD, and big cuts out of it all if banks or alternative converters get their hands on it all. With Canadian international tuition fees costing upwards of 32,019 CAD, that’s $1,200 USD you may not see again.

Paying tuition is hard enough as-is. With Remitbee, international currency exchange works with you, not against you. No additional charges. No added fees. Just conversion. Simple.


For the need to purchase property:

Snowbirds down south, real estate agents, new home buyers. They all have to deal with large property fees for renting, buying, or leasing. If these individuals are from another country, they’ll need a conversion service to proceed. With Remitbee Currency exchange, we help you save thousands of dollars for these types of transactions.
