About exchange rates
The exchange rate is constantly fluctuating. This means that the amount of money you receive will depend on the exchange rate that was in effect when you locked in the exchange.
The rate we lock outside of foreign exchange market hours may not be the same as the rate that's available when the markets are open.
For incoming transfers, different fees may apply. See transfer fees.
