What's Good About TransferWise

Provides Mid-Market Exchange Rate independently provided by Reuters and free from markups.
Customers have transferred $5bn using the platform - an approach that has put over $200m back in their pockets
FAST Transfers with NO Hidden Charges

 

Please Note: With a straightforward money transfer process, users can expect a transfer time of 1 to 2 working days. Sometimes the transaction does take longer, due to TransferWise’s thorough account verification process, the currencies involved and Upload Money method chosen (as well as bank holidays etc.). As long as TransferWise receives the USD deposit in the first 24 hours from order setup, the USD exchange rate is fixed for your transfer. With ACH Bank Debit payments, the rate stays locked beyond 24 hours providing a 'successful' attempt is made within the first 24 hours.

EDITORIAL REVIEW

TransferWise is an online international money transfer company that allows people to send money abroad easier and at the lowest possible rate. Established in London and launched in 2011, TransferWise provides for its users a bank alternative, encouraging customers to outsmart their banks and save when sending money abroad. Using technology developed by the same people who created Skype, TransferWise has become one of the world’s leading remittance services.

While living and working in London, Estonian founders Taavet Hinrikus and Kristo Käärmann created TransferWise as a better way to exchange currencies. Today, TransferWise allows users to send money abroad to many countries worldwide, including the USA, Canada, most European countries, and some countries in Asia and Australia.

Much of its success relies on its easy-to-use online money transfer platform and fair exchange rate fees. Unlike banks, which can charge an upfront fee and up to 5% in hidden fees in the exchange rate, TransferWise customers only pay 0.9%. Founded on its commitment to bringing customers a bank alternative, TransferWise offers the mid-market exchange rate to the users, which makes it cheaper to send money abroad as compared to using a bank to transfer money abroad.

World-renowned leading investors such as Virgin CEO Sir Richard Branson and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel have invested in TransferWise, contributing to the investment funding that the international money transfer service has received. It has received multiple awards as an innovative startup in the remittance industry.

Giving customers a platform where they can send money abroad at the lowest possible cost, TransferWise allows users to send money in their local currency using a debit card, just as they would a normal bank transfer.

FAQS

 

Q: Why does it take longer to send money with TransferWise?
The majority of transfers out of the US are completed within 1 business day. However, occasionally, a transfer with TransferWise may take longer than usual, because of the required verification process. Since Transferwise is regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority), TransferWise must verify people’s identities before proceeding to the actual transaction. FCA regulations are designed to protect customers and prevent illegal activity, such as money laundering or terrorist financing.

 

Q: Why does TransferWise perform the verification process?
TransferWise will ask for verification from all customers at one point during the transaction process. This is because the company is regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) and HMRC (HM Revenue & Customs).

Q: What to consider while sending money with TransferWise?
There are three ways to send money from the US:

  • Direct debit (up to 5000USD)
  • Wire transfer
  • SWIFT (TW don't accept cash or cheques)

Customers can’t send money from Massachusetts, Vermont, Washington state, and customers need to verify their SSN numbers when paying from Arizona or Oklahoma.

Q: When is the transaction cancelled?
Transfer is cancelled if:

  • TW doesn’t receive money in two weeks
  • Customer is using someone else's account or card
  • The names don’t match on the bank account and the profile

I have used transferwise quite many times now. They are certainly giving great exchange rate.. I was little worrying about to give a try but found out really well. The only painful part is they have large fee for transaction which can be avoid using sign up link transferwise.c om/u/09ee19 .I also prefer their mobile app which is super easy to manage your transaction with super ease. Great service for your hard work savings and for your family. I will definitely recommend this to all to just give a try.

I have used REMITLY to transfer some moeny to India and sadly after two attempts without success I decided to ditch REMITLY completely and Tried TRANSFERWISE and surprisingly it was so smooth that I couldn't believe. Money got delivered literally within 1 hour or transferring even though they said it will be 3 working days before it will be delivered. Very pleased with the service. One downside is that it would be better to beat REMITLY's exchange rate and you'll get many more customers.

Dear Maiden Lane.

As a financial institutions, there are cases where we're unable to proceed with the payments and we require further details. We're regulated by the FCA (also in every market where we receive and deliver funds), so it's a very strict process which unfortunately we cannot overlook.

Our team has been in touch via email explaining the situation. Please, feel free to get back to us should you require any additional information about it.

Best wishes.
TransferWise Support Team.

Transferwise, your team hasn't said crap via email aside from the canned rote response that I violated the agreement, which is unusual since I never had a chance to even use your service. I know all about FCA compliance; I'm a central banker.

We would appreciate your call, you can reach us from Japan: +8 134 589 4624 or US: +1 888 908 3833 Or alternatively, please get back to us on support@transferwise.com and let us know when would be a good time for you to receive a call.

Not sure why, but my account was deactivated even after I went through the trouble of sending my legal DL and then--get this--a selfie of me actually HOLDING the ID, as they requested. Now it's true, I'm an ugly bastard, but that shouldn't have been enough to close the account without so much as a how do you do.

I have not used Transferwise but have compared their conversion rates versus Canadianforex and the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) who I do use frequently. The transfer rate today for $2500.00 Canadian dollars to US dollar was as follows: RBC CND $2500 converted to US $1847.88 TRANSFERWISE CND $2500 converted to US $1859.66. CANADIANFOREX CAN $2500 converted to US $1867.75. I did not compare Knightsbridgefx which operates in Toronto. RBC had the most expensive conversion but not by much and the funds are immediately available! Transferwise was in the middle and Canadianforex was the best conversion by say $20.00. However, when funds are transferred to the destination account there is a US $15.00 charge by RBC. In this example RBC looks the best as funds are there immediately if you are transferring to your own US account
