If you’re looking to achieve a specific rate, we can arrange a Market Order. This allows you to target a specific rate of exchange. We monitor the markets on your behalf, and should the market reach your predetermined exchange rate, your currency is bought or sold automatically. Your order can be amended or canceled at any time prior to the transaction taking place. There’s no charge or fee involved in arranging a Market Order.

If you need to make an international payment straightaway (or with very little notice) then a spot contract could be the one for you. We would offer you a rate based on the live exchange rate on the day and you can make a payment there and then. They're great if you just need to get it done.
