RemitWisely exchange rates and fees are visible on the website and final when a customer executes a transaction on their account and payment is received by RemitWisely. The type of payment method used to pay in your funds to RemitWisely affects the duration of your transfer. Always choose the faster payment method than a bank transfer which usually takes 1-3 days before your money arrives to RemitWisely bank account. Guaranteed exchange rates are offered for transfers made through instant transfers whereas when done through bank transfer, the exchange rate applied is the rate at the time of receiving your money.

For transactions done via the regular service, the amount received by the beneficiary is fixed as per what was displayed and agreed on website. However, when a transaction was done through a priority transfer, we have no control what the receiving bank will charge and thus, we cannot guarantee a fixed amount received by the beneficiary. We endeavour to communicate with you any fees that we know of beforehand on the website.

RemitWisely does not make your financial data visible to anyone without authority to a member’s account. Only you who have access to your account can view your personal and financial data. Therefore, be cautious not to share your account to anyone. RemitWisely has security features in place in order to keep your personal and financial data protected from unauthorised access. On the other hand, it is your responsibility to keep your username and password secure at all times.

Any person who is 18 years above of age having a bank account can apply to our services. Get your identification documents ready when you register online.

If you want to cancel your transaction, you can cancel the transaction on your member account. If conversion has not been completed for this transaction, we will refund the full amount to your account. However, if a conversion has already been completed, please notify us and we may charge you a minimum fee for the cancellation. If the transaction has already been paid to your recipient, transaction will show as Completed on your member account and is no longer available for cancellation.


On occasion, the banking network may have to route funds via a corresponding bank to reach your destination; these corresponding banks may levy a transaction charge resulting in your funds arriving short

This is more common with US Dollar transactions so we advise you to send additional funds to cover these charges if they occur regularly.

This doesn’t often happen, but if your funds don’t arrive within the expected timescale, then let us know as soon as possible so that we can set up an investigation with our bank. We will continue to liaise with our bank until the issue has been resolved and the beneficiary has received the funds, and we promise to keep you informed every step of the way.

Don’t forget: The payment will show as coming from AUSREMIT PTY LTD, and not your name – so keep an eye out for AusRemit Pty Ltd on your statement.

The maximum amount of money you can send via RemitWisely is AUD$ 8000 per transaction. This is to adhere to the rules relating to AUSTRAC AML/CTF prevention on money service businesses.

Yes, you can book in a same-day bank transfer to your beneficiary via the Bank Priority option. However, your funds should be received by RemitWisely and cleared by times indicated in our Payment Schedule.

Double check the recipient’s bank details against the details in the payment confirmation and make sure they match. Are there any other external factors that could delay the payment such as a bank holiday?

If the money has not arrived and there is no reasonable explanation, we can obtain an MT103 message for Swift (Standard) payments. Please note, this will incur a charge (depending on our provider). We can also put a trace on the payment to locate where funds are although this will only be done on a ‘best endeavors’ basis. Again, this incurs a fee.

The options open to locate local transfers are more limited.

To help avoid delays on payments, always reference your payments clearly and pass the reference details onto the beneficiary so they know to look for it.


Our clearing cut-off time is 15:30 Melbourne time.

Our site uses SSL Encryption to allow customers to safely view and update sensitive and personal information on the website.

Our system has added 2FA feature to prevent fraudulent transactions by hackers through a token generated code that only our verified customers know. You can enable this feature on your account settings.

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two step verification or TFA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi-factor authentication” to prevent unauthorised access of your account. This prevents hackers from accessing your account even if they know your password by requiring you to enter a generated code from your Google Authenticator app.

This option can be enabled or disabled from your account’s Setting menu. However, we highly encourage our customers to enable this security measure.
Google Authenticator app is used to generate a token that you will use as access code to log on to your RemitWisely account. The app can be downloaded from AppStore or PlayStore.


Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) is an Australian government financial intelligence agency set up to combat money laundering, organised crime, tax evasion, welfare fraud and terrorism. This is the same agency regulating remittance sectors such as RemitWisely.
