How to send a cheap money transfer in 3 easy steps

What is the easiest way to send money with Wise?

How to make a cheap money transfer internationally

  1. Just tap in how much, and where to.
  2. Then make a local payment to Wise, whether it's with a bank transfer, swift or your debit or credit card.
  3. And that's it.

Wise converts your money at the 'inter-bank' rate – the real rate – so you save big time (even versus the guys saying there's 'zero' commission). On Wise, there's no room for sneaky bank surcharges or creeping hidden charges.

Things to consider to find a truly best way to send money internationally

  • Fees

    Many businesses state low fees or even offer consumers fee-free transfers, but most of the expense of sending money abroad is hidden. The bulk of consumer costs can be concealed in poor exchange rates.

  • Exchange rates

    A quick Google search will show you an exchange rate. But if you compare it to the exchange rate offered by banks and traditional money transfer services, you’ll find their rate is often much worse.

  • Transfer time

    Traditional banks and international money remittances often take several working days. Wise is often much faster: a lot of transfers are completed within 1 business day. Many of our transfers are even instant.
