Sending Money to French Polynesia
When sending money to French Polynesia it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :
- Open an account with a provider (id docs may be required)
- You specify the local or CFP Franc amount you want to transfer
- Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
- Once your funds are received by the provider the converted XPF amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in French Polynesia.
You can save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more CFP Franc deposited into the recipient bank account in French Polynesia and less margins and fees kept by the banks!Compare Transfer Exchange Rates to French Polynesia
