Extra profit for no extra work

Feb 17, 2015
Jonny Griffith from Currencies Direct explains how you can make extra money, for no extra work, and keep your customers happy too, just by making a simple recommendation ... even if you don’t win the removal job. Interested?

It’s really very simple.  When your customers move overseas they have to transfer their savings and the proceeds of their house sale to a bank in their new country.  This is a problem for them as they have probably never done it before and don’t know what to do.  Most will go to their bank, get a poor rate of exchange and be charged a fortune for the service.  There is a better way and by pointing your customers in the right direction, you can save them thousands and make a tidy commission for yourself in the process.  Everyone wins!  Best of all, you don’t need to know anything about foreign exchange, you just need to make a referral.

Many removal companies we’ve partnered with wished they had started referring their European and deep-sea clients sooner.  They missed out on thousands of pounds worth of commission by not doing so, and when they did start talking to their customers about Currencies Direct, most of them were very interested and grateful for the information. It’s an instant added value to their company.

Typically, people moving overseas will need to send their savings or set up regular transfers to pay bills or mortgages - either abroad or back in the UK. Banks just don’t take the time or make the effort to understand your customers’ needs and so don’t provide them with a very good service.

Currencies Direct instead has very personal approach. We take the time to understand your clients’ needs and have  currency experts to guide them through the whole process. We offer a much better rate and will transfer the money for free - saving customers up to 5% compared with using their bank (this could be a saving of up to £5,000 for a £100,000 transfer).  This might be enough to pay for their move!  And of course, the whole process is 100% secure as we are authorised by the FCA and have the highest possible credit rating – level 1 – with Dun & Bradstreet. 

Even if you don’t win the job you can still receive a commission.  Just ask the customer if they are interested in receiving information from us, and send us their contact details.  We’ll do the rest.  We will pay you a commission on any money they transfer and all future transactions with that customer without you doing anything.  It’s really very simple.

Editor’s note

I referred my next door neighbour to Currencies Direct when he moved to Ireland.  He saved enough to pay for his move with cash to spare.  I can’t understand why every international mover in the country doesn’t have such an arrangement. I wish companies like this had existed when I was in the business.
