Exceptionally effective way to manage funds internationally
I did quite a bit of research into money transfer apps and platforms and TransferWise seemed to meet all my needs. I opened a Borderless account and have now used it to make several transactions—moving funds between various onshore accounts and converting between currencies. Unless I’m missing something, the platform, the process and the app all work flawlessly.
With just a few clicks my money is moved into my Borderless account in one country, converted from one currency to another, and moved into an external account in a different country. The fees are low and I get the forex spot rate not some 5 or 6 pt spread between buying and selling that pays criminally high broker fees; I’ve saved literally hundreds of USD on one transaction alone.
With some platforms you pay more to get an easy process; with others the cost is low but you have to jump through a lot of hoops. TransferWise is that rare situation where the process is easy AND the cost structure is low. I love it, easiest 5-stars I’ve given in a long while.
Efficiency of TransferWise
I’ve availed TransferWise service for several years now and had great results. Although recently I had an unusually untimely transfer (4 days). In addition I was a bit confused by the overly long estimated time conveyed by TransferWise on a subsequent transfer (6 days) but after submitting the transfer and to my surprise I received the funds in less than two hours, which is about the speed in which I normally receive the funds. I want to clarify my previously poor feedback toward TransferWise. The service I have received is for the most part Great! My only complaint is the recent estimate for the completed transfer. I understand your companies position that it would be better to over estimate the transfer timeframe and deliver the funds earlier than proposed, and I’m trying to wrap my head around that logic because that works great for most people I’m sure. But… in my situation an estimate of 6 days for a Debit/ACH transfer leaves me wanting to initiate my transfer 5 days early, but If the transfer completes in only a few hours it then creates another issue with my billing cycle at my bank and fees. Overall I rate your service as highly recommended. I will just have to cross my fingers and hope the funds arrive as they have in the past.
App works well, needs a couple features
I have very few complaints with TransferWise and this app. It generally works as advertised and I have used it for a number of months now with few problems. One glitch is TransferWise’s interface with banks (U.S., at least), which sometimes does not recognize your account has been verified and asks to reverify it by confirming a couple of micro-deposits – a process which can take several days. However, if you cancel the transfer which prompted the request to reverify, then try it again, this has always resulted in a successful transfer on the second attempt for me. Both the app and desktop version of TransferWise also have trouble sometimes dealing with verification questions used by many banks. One additional feature which would be useful for the app (essential, in my opinion, for a 5-star rating) is the ability to download a pdf receipt for a transfer, showing all relevant account information and date/time of the transfer events, as you can from the desktop web site. Despite the above issues, I’m satisfied with my experience and TransferWise is an excellent alternative to international bank wires, especially for smaller amounts.
