How to send money to the USA from Singapore

How to send money to the USA from Singapore

  1. Just tap in how much, and where to.
  2. Then make a local payment to Wise, whether it's with a bank transfer, Swift or your debit or credit card.
  3. And that's it.

Wise converts your money at the 'inter-bank' rate – the real rate – so you save big time (even versus the guys saying there's 'zero' commission). On Wise, there's no room for sneaky bank surcharges or creeping hidden charges.

How much does it cost to transfer money to the USA?

Pay a small, flat fee and percentage

To send money in SGD to the USA, you pay a small, flat fee of 1.75 SGD + 0.29% of the amount that's converted (you'll always see the total cost upfront).


Fee depends on your chosen transfer type

Some transfer types have different fees which are usually tiny.


No hidden fees

No big fees, hidden or otherwise. So it's cheaper than what you're used to.
