The fact that every country holds a different currency, which varies in terms of value, often makes international money exchange transaction quite interesting. My job as a freelance web designer has helped me encounter numerous experiences, which I had no clue about in the early days. Dealing with international clients, understanding foreign currency, striking a profitable deal after comprehending different currency values and plenty of other factors start surfacing.
After getting hold of my first client who was from Japan, I personally had no idea how am I going to propose an offer that can be beneficial for both the parties. I was slightly familiar with the currency of Japan, which goes by the name of Japanese Yen but I had no clue how much it differs in terms of value with the Indian currency. Matters like these require accurate and strict data in order to be on the safe side. I knew that I simply could not call a friend or relative and ask for details, as even they would be clueless.
With every path blocked, the last option left for me was to garner information from the internet. And the biggest problem was different portals always provided me with a slight fraction of changes in the information it offered. At times, some currency exchange websites get me completely perplexed as the data presented based on the mechanism and different geographical locations always differ. What made me fear the most is that I do not want to be conned based on different price information offered by different currency exchange sites. For this purpose, I contacted my client, we both agreed to settle on a single website, and the information offered by it.
One of my friends who happen to be a broker in the foreign exchange market recommended me with some great currency exchange sources. Out of all the references that he had provided, I short listed one and shared the link with the client. The website that my client and I had settled for was transfer money online cum currency comparison portal. This website allowed me to make international money transfers and it also had a mechanism displayed in its home page that allowed visitors surfing the page to understand the value of different currencies. Over and above, the site was extremely helpful and having access to the latest market insights always comes in handy for me to predict future currency fluctuations.
Making payments, receiving funds, and comparing currency were now all in the tip of my finger and a few clicks is all it took for me to overcome any misunderstandings between me and the client. I always used a simple strategy that helped me keep my business transactions safe. I demanded the clients to make a 50% pay prior to getting started with work and the rest of it after completion. At times, the changes in currency value brings me more funds when the left over payment is funded to my account on a late due date. Using currency comparison portals acts like bank for me that helps me maintain transparency and conduct clean transactions.
