A week or two ago I had an article that included some information about money and banking. One of the readers, Tripack, lamented that he wished he could do a currency exchange through his online banking.
I was pretty sure that could be done, and it can! Although I was wrong in the exact way to do it, I brought on my good friend, Dave Starr, to share the information with me and the rest of the LiP audience.
So, in today’s Expat Answerman Video, I am doing an interview with Dave Starr. It was nice to have Dave back on LiP! In case you don’t know, Dave used to write here on the Magazine. Dave also has a Philippine Expat Blog of his own, why not give him a visit at PhilFAQs? Dave has some interesting content that you might find informative, and I am sure he would be happy if you swing by there and read some of his articles.
You CAN exchange currencies online!
So, watch the video and Dave will share with you exactly how you can exchange from Dollars (or other currencies) to Pesos right on your Online Banking account in the Philippines. This will save you hours for each time that you need to make the exchange. For many of us, we have to do that kind of exchange regularly, because even though we live in the Philippines, we are still earning in US Dollars or whatever the currency is in our home country.
I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Dave. We will be featuring other guests on future episodes, and still to the Q & A format too. I encourage you to leave comments on the topic, they are most appreciated and one way to get an answer to whatever questions you may have.
