How to send money from USD to INR

Best ways to send money internationally

  • Bank Transfer

    Use Pix to pay international transfers and get the same fast, easy experience you enjoy in Brazil. Just set up an international transfer from BRL and follow the steps in your Wise account. You can also follow the steps in your account to pay using TED or Doc. Read more about paying by Pix and paying by bank transfer.
  • Direct Debit

    Direct Debit is a convenient option that lets us take money from your account once you have authorised the payment on our site. It takes a little more time for your money to reach Wise, and it can be more expensive than a bank transfer.
  • Debit Card

    Paying for your transfer with a debit card is easy and fast. It’s also usually cheaper than credit card, as credit cards are more expensive to process. Read more about how to pay for your money transfer with a debit card.
  • Credit Card

    Paying for your transfer with a credit card is easy and fast. Wise accepts Visa, Mastercard and some Maestro cards. Read more about how to pay for your money transfer with a credit card.
