Wise: A transparent and simple alternative


Western Union is a handy service, especially if you need to get some cash to someone abroad quickly. It’s worth pointing out that, apart from the upfront fee you pay for this service, there will also be an extra fee added to the exchange rate that’s more difficult to spot. Here’s the note from the Western Union website, for reference:

“Western Union also makes money from currency exchange.”³

What that means is that Western Union takes the mid-market exchange rate - the one you’ll find on Google - and adds a markup or a margin to create the rate used for customers. This is an extra fee and means you pay more in the end for your transfer.

Not all services do this. Wise offers customers the mid-market exchange rate with no markup. Just a transparent, low service fee. That means it’s easy to see exactly what you’re paying for the transfer - and how much your recipient will get. With Wise your payment will be delivered directly into your recipient’s bank account for convenience - and you never need to leave home to get it all set up.
