The Problem

Currently, users have to browse number of website of currency exchange providers to figure out the best rates being offered by the providers and even then some of the providers are missed as users are not aware of them. This is a tedious and time taking process to find out the best rates prevailing in the market.

The Solution

Design a solution through which users can quickly compare the best currency rates by different exchange providers and the convenience options they provide.

User Journey

Vinay’s user journey

Note: Users also have to go through several websites and which means they also have to go through a number of website experiences. This leads to more frustration in the user eventually.

Scope of the case study

Handling

  • Buying of currency is handled in this test project.
  • Offers by the exchange providers are also shown.
  • Best exchange rates by exchange providers and the facilities they provide.

Not Handling

  • There can be a case like send money to someone in other country.
  • Filters can be added on exchange providers results page but not including in this test project.
  • Integration with exchange providers can also be done in a way that user don’t have to visit their website and make the purchase on CExchange, this will enhance their user experience a lot.
