From the Transfers page, you can send money via global foreign exchange transfer, which allows you to convert US dollars to a foreign currency and then transfer it to any desired payee with an international bank account that is currently configured in Rho. You can schedule a transfer to happen immediately or at a later time, as well as schedule the transfer to be a recurring transaction.
For more information about creating a Payee in Rho, see Adding Payees.
To transfer money, click the Transfers button. From the Transfers page, click the Send Money button. From the Send Money page, click Global FX Transfer.
- Click the From Account drop-down list and select the Rho account that the money is transferred from.
- Click the To Payee drop-down list and select the desired Payee from the drop-down list.
Note: Only payees with an international bank account are listed in the drop-down list.
The international bank account(s) associated with the payee are displayed. Select the desired account and click Continue.
You can specify the value in either US Dollars in the You Sent field or in the foreign currency in the Payee Gets field, and the Rho application will convert the value based on current exchange rates.
For example, if you need a payee to receive 1000 in British pounds (GBP), enter 1000 in the Payee Gets field, and the Rho application converts that value to the current value in US Dollars.
Click Continue. The values are transferred to the Transfer Details page.
Specify the transfer information, and then click Create:

- When should it go through
By default, the money is scheduled to be transferred immediately (Now). To specify a later date, click Later and then click the calendar field to specify the desired date.
All immediate transfers are displayed on the Past Transfers page, and all scheduled transfers are displayed on the Scheduled Transfers page.
Note: If you schedule a recurring transfer using the How often? field, the Rho application bases the transfer on the date specified in the When should it go through field. For example, if you schedule a monthly transfer (Every Month) with a schedule date of 01/01/2022, then the first recurring transfer will occur on 02/01/2022.
Confirm Transfer Details
After you create the transfer a confirmation page displays. Review the transfer information, and then click the Confirm Transfer button.
When you click the button, Rho sends a confirmation code using the two-factor authentication method that is specified in your Account Settings page, which is typically SMS Authentication (text messages to your cell phone).
From the verification page, enter the four-digit code code sent to your account and click Continue.
Note: To choose another method to verify the transfer, click the Use another method button and select another verification method (text message, phone call, or email).
