Money Changer at the 4th Floor of Southwoods Mall in Binan, Laguna
When the US dollar-peso rate was much less than 53 pesos in many exchange shops, their rate was
1 US dollar = 53 pesos.

For big amounts of money, go to money changers inside malls that also have banks or cash deposit machines operating inside the malls. After getting your peso bills, you can just walk several steps towards these banks or cash deposit machines and deposit your money.

Some of the banks that operate inside malls are:
BDO and China Bank (SM malls)
BPI (Ayala malls and some SM malls)
Robinsons Bank (Robinsons malls)
EastWest (Festival Mall).
BPI has cash deposit machines at Ayala malls and at some SM malls.

Note:  These money changers might have other branches not listed.

NOTE: Many money changers now require you to present at least 1 valid ID and fill up personal data forms.  Some even require at least 2 valid IDs from new customers.
Obviously, this new procedure arose from the recent Bangladesh Bank heist, in which US$81 million was stolen from the bank through wire transfer and was laundered through RCBC Bank and money changer PhilRem.

  2. This is really helpful. Thank you very much! 🙂

  3. thanks a lot, so useful 🙂

  4. Do know money changer for oman baisa?

    1. Money changer for Oman Baisa:
      There's no money changer changing baisa in the Philippines because 100 baisa is only one-tenth of 1 Omani rial.
      Here's more info on 100 baisa to peso

  5. mgknu po ang pal8 ng barain dinar coins!?

    1. Hi Nogielyn: Sa Facebook page ng Ans Money Changer sa Quintos St., Malate, Manila, ang palitan as of last April 2016 was Bahrain fils x .05. Kung meron kang 100 Bahrain fils, ang palit is 100 fils x .05 = 5 pesos.
      Less than kalahati ang palitan ng Bahrain coins compared sa Bahrain dinar. Ang isang Bahrain dinar is equal to 1,000 Bahrain fils. Fils ang tawag sa coins nila.

      1. pa din po ba yang mga palitan ng lumang pera na yan?meron po kc aqong or turkish lira..tenkyu

        1. Hi tin, sorry, yong mga turkish lira na maraming zeros wala nang value. Ang highest na turkish lira is 200 na lang. I-google mo turkish lira para mabasa mo yong ibang info.

          1. pati po ba ang frncs money na old wala na din pong halaga?

  6. Hi. may limit po ba sila when exchanging dollars? If so, ano po pinakamaliit na rate e.g in other money exchange outside the mall they require at least 100$ para maipapalit.

    1. Hi cookie cuks, wala namang limit sa mga money changers na pinupuntahan ko. Magtanong-tanong ka lang. Pero some money changers, mas mababa ang palitan kapag lower bills. Sa Czarina dito sa Alabang Town Center, pareho ang exchange rate for $100 or lower bills.

    1. Hi Richard, try mo sa mga maliliit na money changers. Yong mga malalaking money changers, mapili sila.

  11. Hi! Pag napapalit po ba ng euro to peso, pwede po ba ibigay pati euro coins?

    1. Hi Joanna, maraming money changers lalo na yong mga popular/bigger money changers ay hindi tumatanggap ng coins, pero merong tumatanggap. Tanungin mo na lang muna bago ka magpapalit. Pag matiempo ka na lang sa Ermita/Malate, Manila, tanungin mo mga money changers don.

  12. gusto ko na bumili ng GBP. aalis na ako friday..san ba maganda ang rate? hehehe

    1. Hi MyKwentongX: Maraming bumibili ng foreign currency sa Czarina at Sanry's, so most likely, mas okay ang rate nila.

  35. mam pwede po ba ako mag papalit ng piso sa dollars ?

    1. Hi Danah, sorry for very late reply. Yes, puede kang bumili ng dollars using your peso. Puede kang bumili sa money changers. Bring your IDs. Kung meron kang account sa bank, puede kang bumili sa bank where you have an account.

  36. Hello i have 9 pcs 100 bahrain coins . Saan po kaya pwede ito mapapalitan ? Plss i need imformation

  37. hello maam good day meron po aku 100 coin of bahrain saan po ba pwdeng magkano po tlga ang value.?

    1. As of today, 1 Bahrain dinar is 130 pesos, based sa website ng Nailas Money Changer. Ang isang Bahrain dinar = sampu na 100 fils (100 coin), so malamang na ang 100 coin is around 13 pesos. Usually, hindi nagpapalit ang mga money changers ng coins, pero kung mapadaan ka sa Ermita o Malate, magtanong ka rin.

  38. Mam San po pwd magpapalit ng Brazil real?

    1. Sa Nailas Money Changer sa Malate at malamang sa iba ring money changers doon: Brazil Real (small bill only) Real= 6 pesos

      1. hello po. Saan po pwedeng magpapalit nang lumang us dollar? pati yung mga may punit punit? thanks

        1. Hi joyce, subukan mo ang mga money changers malapit sa mga palengke. Mga banks at mga bigger money changers ay strict at ayaw nila yong may mga punit kasi marami silang clients, pero yong mga smaller money changers, minsan tumatanggap sila.

      2. Saan po pwedeng magpapalit ng brazilian real, 100 real at 50 real po?!

        1. Hi Kristin, sa Naila’s sa Mabinit St., Malate. Small bills only daw. Tanungin mo rin yong mga money changers near you

  39. may ngtip po saken sa hotel ng papua new guinea coins.dalawang 20t at isang 50t?pede ba ito ipapalit?

    1. Hi ken, sorry, malamang walang money changer ang ngpapalit ng Papua New Guinea coins. Yong bills ng Papua New Guinea ay pinapalitan, nakita ko sa website ng Nailas Money Changer.

  40. pwede pa magpapalit dto ng 100 fils coin ng bahrain ?

    1. Hi chino, ang alam ko, walang nagpapalit ng coins sa atin, kasi hindi sila kikita. Iba ito sa mga coins for collectors. Ang 1 Bahrain dinar is equal to sampu na 100 fils na coin, so kung 130 pesos ang 1 Bahrain dinar, ang kapalit dapat ng 100 fils na coin ay 13 pesos, kaya nga lang walang nagpapalit, pero tanungin mo rin sa money changer na malapit sa inyo.

      1. hi, san po may nagpapalit ng cz koruna? salamat

    2. Mayron nga din ako 100 coins nang Bahrain

  41. hi, saan po may nagpapalit ng cz koruna?

  42. Hello po. Meron po kase old Us dollar yung kapatid ko kaso medyo may damage na pero nandun parin serial number nya. Pwede pa po bang papalit ang old us dollar sa philippines?

  43. Good evening ask ko lang po kong saan po pwde mag papalit ng jordan dinar? i had 140 dinars.. nahihirapan po ako magpapalit dito sa pilipinas. binigyan po kasi ako ng mother po.. kaya hindi kopo alam kong saan pwde ipapalit. sana po matulungan niyo ako . salamat

    1. Hi Cherry ann, dito sa Nailas Money Changer sa Malate. Ito website nila:

  44. hai po mag kano po palit ng 100kr fish coin po at san po pweding ipalit

    1. Hi raymond, sorry, ang alam ko walang money changer ang nagpapalit ng foreign coins sa Philippines, kahit nga US dollar coins, except lang siguro yong money changer na coin collector din. Sa Naila’s Money Changer, which changes many currencies, hindi sila nagpapalit ng kahit yong Iceland’s paper money. From the internet, 1 krona = 42 cents in Phil, so ang 100 kr = 42 pesos.
