Wise: A transparent and simple alternative


There are many different options for sending money abroad - so it’s a smart idea to compare a few before you decide which one to use. Western Union is handy for getting payments in cash to people quickly. It’s not necessarily the cheapest option, though - no matter how good the transfer fee looks. That’s because of this (quote taken from the Western Union website):

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

What this means is that Western Union adds a markup to the exchange rates they offer customers. Instead of getting the rate you find on Google or using a currency converter, the Western Union rate will include an extra fee - making it more expensive than you might expect.

You can avoid this - and get a better deal - if you’re sending a payment directly to someone’s bank account, thanks to Wise. Wise uses the real mid-market exchange rate with no markup, and no hidden fees. You can see straight away what your recipient will receive, and the payment is delivered directly to their bank account for convenience. It couldn’t be easier.
