If you want to target a specific rate or if we anticipate large movements in the currency markets, then an Order to Buy can be a good way to protect your budget.

Many of our customers use this tool, which can be especially useful in uncertain times such as these.


What is an Order to Buy?

An Order to Buy, also known as a Market Order, is a tool where you work together with your trader to set an exact exchange rate. If that exchange rate is hit, we automatically book in your transfer at that rate.

We monitor the rates for you, so you can relax without the rush to contact us. If the rate isn’t hit, nothing will be booked.

The minimum transfer value for an Order to Buy is £10,000 (or equivalent).


Example Scenario –Take advantage when exchange rates rise with an Order to Buy:

The GBP/EUR exchange rate rises from 1.11 to 1.15, but only remains there for a very short period of time before dropping back down to 1.11. However, you have discussed your budget with your Smart trader and set a desired exchange rate of 1.14 with a Market Order.

We book your transfer when the rate hits 1.14, meaning you receive extra euros for the same amount of pounds.

Rated Excellent for Currency Exchange & Money Transfers

***** Trustpilot

Absolutely brilliant service. My trader at Smart Currency Exchange was in regular contact as I had a delay in Spain transferring funds. Once received he phoned and funds were in my UK account the next day.
