Send money to Burkina Faso

Fast, low-cost, and secure online money transfers from the USA to Burkina Faso.

The more you send, the more you save

Many banks add 3% or more in hidden fees to the exchange rate — and it quickly adds up on large transfers. Worst of all, this fee is hard to spot unless you know to look.

With Wise, the price you see is the price you pay. No hidden fees. We lower our percentage fee on large transfers too — so the more you send, the more you save.

Safeguarded at leading banks.

We keep your money with leading financial institutions like JP Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, and Barclays.

Dedicated support team.

We know that sending large amounts can be stressful, so you can reach a specialist for support whenever you need it.

Extra secure transactions.

We use two factor authentication to protect your account. That means only you can get to your money.

At Wise, we never hide extra fees and charges in the exchange rate. We just use the exchange rate – independently provided by Reuters. That means fair, low-cost transfers, every time.

Compare Wise exchange rates and fees with some of the biggest money transfer and remit services, such as Barclays, MoneyGram or WorldRemit.
