Ordering currency online

PayID is when you use our email address (transfer@smoney.com.au) to make your payment instead of our BSB and account number. It’s like BPay, but it’s even faster so we can get your order to you much sooner. PayID is available through all major banks using your online banking app. Please note some banks have a maximum amount of $2000 for payments using PayID and a few, like Commonwealth can take up to 24 hours to release funds when paying a company for the first time. For more information, head to the PayID site.
Yes! you can call or email us if you have specific denomination requirements and we will do our very best to meet them.
There may be cancellation costs, particularly if the Australian dollar exchange rate changes significantly from when you booked the order. Where possible, we’ll try to waive cancellation fees.
S Money currently sells 5 currencies. As we grow we will continue to make more currencies available to you.

Yes, you'll need an approved government issued ID to order currency and you'll need to have it with you to collect your order. Buying currency online is much like buying currency in store. We need to check your ID to validate that the currency isn't being used for illegal activity and to keep your money safe. Don’t worry we won't use this data for anything else.

Exchange rates and fees

S Money offers the same rate that you see on Google or XE unlike any other currency exchange online in Australia. Why? We are sick of hidden fees and margins. To be able to offer the best exchange rate in Australia for cash services, we charge a very small service fee.
We aim to be upfront and transparent about what we charge and what it’s for. Unlike other businesses we don't try to hide this charge in the exchange rate. All orders will incur a service fee. This covers the cost of buying the currency and GST, along with a small profit. You can pick up your currency for free but if you prefer to have it delivered to your door there is an additional fee to cover the cost of delivery.
The exchange rate you see on Google or xe.com is the live market exchange rate. It's also known as the wholesale rate or the interbank rate. It's the rate that banks exchange millions of dollars at a time for. It also changes more than once a second. There will be times when the rate you see on S Money isn't 100% exactly the same as these rates, because they are changing all the time. S Money uses the rate on Google, XE, Reuters and other online services to make sure you get the same best rate that is shown online.
We wish we could tell you! Unfortunately there is no 'best time' to buy currency, because exchange rates are always changing and are very unpredictable.
