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 should've read the reviews before I use this transfer company. My transfer was cancelled with no explanation ! Do your research before using this transferwise company. All the reviews are mostly negative and now I see why.

No idea what is going on but I was trying to send money to an account I have in Australia and my account just got deactivated. No contact by email, no calls, nothing... I really just don't get why my account is deactivated for no reason!

My second try I sent a small amount just to see if it works. 2 days later the money arrived to my wife's bank account. Thank you.

Nothing but trouble. They refused to send my first transfer and told me that I'm banned from using their company??? Then Customer service made me take selfies with 3 sets of ID and a screenshot of my bank statement. I was then accepted. I sent money again and the money was not transferred. I sent 12 emails without a response back from them. I'm sorry I ever tried to use this company and thank goodness this was not an emergency or somebody could have been denied emergency medical care. "Your deposit for transfer #21589766 is on its way to us!" So where is my transfer? It's been over a week and you still haven't responded. Why are you ignoring me? Don't you want my business?

Just to update, the money is received its destination. Took longer than expected but finally received. Thanks for your help anyway.

I am experiencing the same troubles you guys are saying right now. Transferred $600 USD to my bank account in US and has not received anything. Contacted the customer service and they are saying similar stories to what are you guys saying. I am waiting now for a proof of payment to follow up with this process. Can't wait to get done with this transaction to run away of this company. Unfortunately, I did not read the review at this web first. They have a company endoresed website called trustpilot where they are got high score and good review. I agree this is so stressful and not trustworthy.

Hi Mahesh,

Thank you for your thoughts.
We check every review case by case and do not use templates. Our sentiments are similar though, as we do want to ensure that every customer has a good experience, or a better one next time. The feeling behind it is genuine, but if the messages give out a feeling of canned replies, we're sorry. We'll take better care in the future.

Critique is important to us and we do our best to respond with our explanations to negative reviews. It's not about defending so much as it is about clarifying the situation and checking if anything was done incorrectly on our side.
We noticed it is not possible for us to respond to a second comment here, so we advise to reach out via email for further communication.

It is unfortunate that you felt overwhelmed by negative comments. We do hope you also see the positive side that our customers share with us each day in different channels and try us out too.

All the best,
TransferWise Support

Wanted to give this a try but too many negative reviews and hardly any defense from the customer support. Most of it looks like a template answer with fill in the blanks.

I have used Transferwise quite many times. 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.com/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. Give a try.

So I recently used it to send money to India. I must say their service is awesome. They do charge a service fee but if you transfer more than 3k you will get back the transfer fee in the conversion rate. They do not slice the conversion rate rather give you the exact market rate, so at the end you are being getting more money. Also their transaction speed is very good by next working day you will get the money. If you want to send a small amount like 500-1000$ use the link below to send 500$ free. https://transferwise.com/u/naveens55
