Procedures for data collection

Price information is collected monthly from companies by the Swedish Consumer Agency. A data collector acts as a customer in order to get the same information that a customer would receive.

The following questions are asked during data collection:

  1. How much does it cost to send 1000/3000 SEK to X?
  2. What is the exchange rate, if I send the money now?
  3. How long does it take for the money to arrive?
  4. How can I send money? (Online, at an office, by phone, etc.)
  5. How can the recipient collect the money? (Cash, online, ATM, etc.)
  6. Where can the recipient collect the money? (Nationwide, main cities etc.)
  7. Does it cost anything for the recipient to collect the money?
  8. Is there anything else I need to know as a customer?

Non-transparent service - Grey-zone

Some services are non-transparent and are placed at the bottom of the price comparison page at Money from Sweden. This occurs when important information is missing.
A service is considered as non-transparent if one of the following applies:

  1. The service fee is not disclosed
  2. The operator's exchange rate is not disclosed before the transaction is completed. (Exception: Operators that provide a daily rate and inform the customer that some price variation may occur due to fluctuating exchange rates will not be classified as non-transparent.)
  3. If a company can’t answer a definite yes or no to whether there is a collection fee for the recipient.
