South Korea, welcome to TransferWise


Today, we're launching transfers to South Korean Won.

You can read all about in Chosun here.

It makes TransferWisethe first online money transfer company to let you send KRW directly to South Korean bank accounts, rather than leaving it to the bank at the other end to make a costly conversion.

It’s fast, as fair as ever, and with a fee starting from 3,750 KRW – it’s great value, no matter how much you’re sending.

KRW transfers are available right now on, and will be rolling out to the TransferWise iOS and Android app in the coming weeks.

So when you next need to send money to South Korea, remember that there’s a smart new way to do it. With no hidden charges.

South Korea, it’s great to have you with us.
