Our exchange fee: 0.00 CAD
The first thing you should know about us is that we’re fully transparent about our services and our fees. With our CAD to USD calculator we make it easy for users to see how much they can save, and we’re confident that we can match up against any other St. Catharines currency exchange services out there.
Remitbee began from the desire to stop the manipulation of exchange rates to suit the institutions offering them. No more did we want to see unfair conversion cuts, and no more did we want to see limit caps or other exchange red-tape. We were made to disrupt that entire system.
Whether you’re contracted by a U.S company or freelancing for one or many, unfair exchange rates and fees can really cut into your earnings.
For example, the 50k annual salary you were supposed to get? You just lost $2,000 of it to your bank currency convert. Ouch, right? That won’t happen with us.
You did your research and started investing in some pretty profitable American stocks. Congratulations! But why is a chunk of it missing after conversion?
That’s because banks charge 2.5% for conversions like CAD to USD, and services like Questrade take around 1.5-1.99% both ways. For $1000 worth of US stocks, that’s 40 CAD gone, and for $50,000 worth, it’s 2,000 CAD!
But now you have the option to use Remitbee Currency Exchange, which charges you zero fees. None. Nada.
Average tuition fees for international students in Canada during 2020-2021 was approximately 32,019 CAD. For an American student, or any student really, that’s a lot of money. Worrying about coursework, exams, internships, jobs, living, and now losing $1,200 USD per year just because you chose to use your bank for converting your currency (according to March 4, 2021’s exchange rate when you convert USD to CAD or convert CAD to USD)? No way.
With us, international currency exchange isn’t a robbery or a con. It’s just a simple, easy exchange without fees.
Many snowbirds buy property over the border when they travel further south every winter. After all, it’s an investment. Other people invest in real estate in Canada or the U.S. because the markets are doing well at the time. Whatever the intentions may be, converting the huge amounts of money needed to buy a house can generate some serious revenue for your third-party converter if you’re not careful.
Converting money to buy a 531,000 dollar house purchase in Canada, for example, may lose you 9,000 USD with another service. With our currency exchange these issues are non-existent.
Banks and bad exchange rates go hand in hand. They take advantage of customers who don’t know any better. With us, we’re confident in our rates, and we’re confident in our users. We encourage all to conduct their own searches for the real exchange rate, the Canadian dollar rate today, or even CAD/USD rate forecasts. Looking up “usd to cad” or “cad to usd” themselves to see just how well our rates pass the test.
Remitbee offers competitive rates and zero fees for all users that exchange a minimum of $10 between the two CAD and USD currencies. Simple.
