The South Korean Won buy back rates below were last updated 3 minutes ago
In 2007 it was estimated that more than 50% of all South Korean Won notes were counterfeit. The currency was withdrawn and replaced with new high tech bank notes that are now some of the most secure currency notes in the world. If you have any old (pre-2007) South Korean Won notes leftover, these may be rejected if they are suspected of being counterfeit.
The best South Korean Won buy back rates can always be found online and the worst rates are usually offered by the banks or high street travel agents. Use our unique comparison table above to compare the latest and greatest South Korean Won buy back deals and see how much you could save by selling online compared to the high street.
There are three easy steps to selling your currency back online. All of these instructions will be explained to you as you go along and we'll also email you further instructions on what to do after you've placed your order.
Enter the amount of currency you want to sell and find the best deals using our comparison table above. If you have more than one currency to sell you can add them to your order later on. Once you've found a buyer, click 'Sell Now' where you'll be asked to fill out a buy-back order form.
We'll need a few basic details from you including your contact details, the currency(ies) you would like to sell and the bank account you would like your payment sent to. Once you've completed the quick order form you'll be asked to print a copy - don't worry if you don't have a printer handy as we'll also email you a copy and you can also write your order number on a piece paper if you don't have access to a printer. At this point we'll also send a copy of your order to the buyer so they know to expect your currency.
You'll need to then post your currency and order form (or a piece of paper containing your order number) to the buyer or drop it in to them in person if you live nearby. We recommend you send you currency via Royal Mail Special Delivery as this service is fully trackable and insured for up to £2,500 (you can split larger orders up into multiple packages if necessary).
Once the buyer receives your currency they will contact you to confirm receipt and process your payment. You will then be paid directly into your bank, usually within 3 working days of them receiving your currency.
