A month ago, you started your vacation in the south of France. You'll never forget hiking through the Luberon trails near Avignon and exploring the vineyards, orchards and caves. Then, you visited the Fontaine de Vaucluse and took an unforgettable swim in its turquoise spring water. Before you head north to spend a week in Paris, you visit a winery in the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine region.
After tasting an outstanding cuvée called Deus Ex Machina, you are inspired to transform your sports bar into a wine bistro. It's the very definition of the name on the label - a true business intervention. This will be the day your business will shift from offering standard draft beer to include some of the world's finest wines. Craft beer is trending too, so you can always offer ales and lagers from Germany, Canada, and some locals.
You arrange to have a few cases shipped a month to stock in your establishment in Chicago. You've wanted to capture a more exclusive clientele for a while, and now you know how.
You also know the best way to pay for imported goods from the countries listed above, or others - XE Money Transfer.
Now you can check rates, set up rate alerts, and transfer money on the go - all from the XE Currency App on your preferred mobile device. So you can order and pay for wine from France, beer from Germany, chocolate from Switzerland and lobster from Canada, all from your Android or iOS device.
Fast, Secure, Reliable Money Transfer Experiences
You may not own a sports bar in Chicago. Or maybe you do, and want to keep it that way, and add some French wine or German to your menu. What ever your business specialty, if you are acquiring wine, cheese, or any other products from France from overseas, online money transfer is the best way to pay for it. If you are a French expat, and/or have family or friends that are in need of a financial lift, XE has you covered.
There's just three steps to completing a money transfer to France from outside the EU:
- Register for an account, and provide eKYC documentation, including proof of identity, (such as a driver's license which has a photograph of you) and proof of address (such as a utility bill). If the account is for your business, you'll find the resources you need here.
- Request a quote - Tell XE how much you want to send, in which currency, and where to send it. We'll provide you with a current exchange rate, which you should act on as soon as possible to take advantage of favourable rates.
- Remit the money in your home currency - Send the money from your bank to XE's bank account nearest you via SWIFT or wire transfer.
- Track your transaction online - Your account will be updated with the progress of your money transfer, including SMS and email notifications of when XE receives your money, when it is transferred, and as it travels through any intermediary banks to the final destination. Our transfer tracking tools are also to serve our clients better, and offer more transparency.
Our friendly, knowledgeable customer care team is available to help you with any concerns or challenges you may have.
