From the customer's perspective, the service works in three easy steps. First, the customer transfers money in the source currency from their bank account to an account held by CurrencyFair. Second, after the transfer is registered, the customer gets to choose the target currency. Third, after the exchange is made, funds can be transferred out to a designated bank account.
CurrencyFair saves their customers' money by eliminating excessive bank fees and offering best currency exchange rates around the world. The best rates are provided by directly matching customers who are interested in exchanging currency through the service.
CurrencyFair's benefits are recognized by thousands of customers worldwide who use it daily to transfer millions of euros. Overwhelmingly satisfied with the service, users have ranked CurrencyFair experience 9.5 out of 10 on the consumer review platform Trustpilot.
Just like in mobile banking apps, the customer's assets are protected by two-factor authentication. In addition to a regular password, to unlock the app, the user has to provide secondary credentials which are received via SMS, phone call or generated by Google Authenticator.
The development of CurrencyFair was driven by our established continuous integration process, aided by tools from CircleCI. This method of development enables us to quickly iterate builds and deliver the final software product faster.
