TD Bank Currency Exchange

TD Bank CAD to USD/ USD to CAD Exchange Rate Overview

TD Bank states that its rates change throughout the day. It has two rates: cash and non cash.

Non cash is for transfers, deposits, cheques, drafts, and other transactions in which no physical foreign currency is exchanged. TD Bank also uses the non-cash rate when you pay on your TD U.S. Dollar credit card balance.

Cash on the other hand is for the purchase and sale of physical foreign currency in cash. Non-cash rates are usually better for you than cash rates. This represents the costs and uncertainties of shipping, handling, and storing cash in foreign currency.

How does TD Bank’s currency exchange work?


- You buy foreign currency in cash from them
- They buy foreign currency in cash from you
- They receive a wire transfer or a cheque deposit in a foreign currency

As the bank says itself: How do we set our exchange rates? For each foreign currency purchase where we set the exchange rate, the exchange rate we use is a retail exchange rate

What they call the retail exchange rate is actually the mid-market rate plus a margin added on top for their profit. All consumer banks do this in order to make money on your currency exchange transactions.

Banks usually use a rate known as the mid-market rate to swap currency with other banks. However, they do not give this lower rate to their customers. Instead, they add a margin to the exchange rate to make a profit. They also tack on additional fees, such as a cash processing fee or an international transaction fee..
