How to buy foreign currency in cash from Australia Post

There are 2 ways to buy foreign currency in cash at the post office:

  1. Order it online
  2. Head down to a participating post office and order it
How to Buy Foreign Currency in Cash from ANZ

1. Online

Head to the Auspost foreign currency cash website. Enter the amount you need and confirm the exchange rate. Choose how you would like to pay for it (either Bpay or card). You need to choose which post office you'd like to pick it up from and a date to pick it up. Finally, you'll need to confirm your details and have your I.D. on hand when you collect your foreign currency.

There is a minimum order size of $500 and a maximum limit of $5000. You can pick the order up from your local branch in 2-3 business days, but you need to bring some I.D.

2. At the post office

It's the same process of ordering, paying and coming back to collect it. The only difference is you can't pay using BPAY or a credit card. You must use EFTPOS and choose either cheque or savings.

Charges, currency conversion fees and commissions

How to Sell Foreign Currency in Cash from ANZ

Auspost doesn't charge a fee to order currency to be picked up at a post office. If you want to pay for your currency using a credit or debt card, there are card processing fees.

Please note, Auspost do not give you the wholesale exchange rate you see on Google or XE.com. While a worse rate is not a commission or a fee, it still adds to your cost of purchasing currency.
