Stop losing out to hidden fees when you send money abroad with banks or PayPal.
There are usually two costs associated with sending money abroad: the fee, and the exchange rate. To be precise, there’s the upfront fee providers charge you for their service, and the markup many of them add to the rate that’s used to convert your money.
Banks and other providers can make it hard to understand exactly what you’re paying for. They might say they have low, or even no fees, but they won’t tell you whether they’re using the real, mid-market exchange rate.
Since many providers mark up the exchange rate without telling you, you’re liable to pay more than you need to for an international transfer.
At Wise, we always want you to know exactly what you’re paying for. That’s why we put our rate and fee right upfront.
But we also don’t want you to pay any more than you really need to, so we’ve built a comparison tool for you. It makes it easy to compare the cost of your transfer with different providers. If there’s a cheaper option out there, the tool will just tell you.

If you’re sending money to the UK, EU, or US, and you pay for your transfer with an instant pay-in method — like a debit or credit card — we’ll get the money to your recipient instantly.
If you’re sending money to other countries, we always tell you how long it will take to reach them. Fifty percent of all our transfers arrive within one hour, and you can track the status of any transfer in your account.
Besides sending money to your loved ones, you can also send money to pay for your online shopping purchases abroad — and save on exchange rates and transaction fees.
