Why do I keep more money with Wise?
Most providers show you their transfer fee upfront. That’s only fair. But some of them sneak a markup into the exchange rate. And that’s not fair.
A markup means you get a bad exchange rate, which means you lose money when you change currencies.
At Wise, we never mark up the exchange rate. We just use the exchange rate – independently provided by Reuters. That means fair, low-cost transfers, every time.
What you'll need for your online money transfer
Wise makes international money transfers simple
All you need is your recipient's:
- full name,
- their local bank details.
For example, you need an IBAN for Euro transfers, a SORT code and account number for the UK, a routing and account number for the US, and account number as well as an IFSC code for India.
International money transfer fees: How much do they cost?
No big fees, hidden or otherwise. So it's cheaper than what you're used to.
- You pay a small, flat fee + fixed percentage of the transfer amount (you’ll always see the total cost upfront)
- Some payment methods have an added fee, but that's usually tiny too
- You always get the real, mid-market exchange rate, with no markup whatsoever
