You can check our pricing page to see how the changes will affect the transfers you make.
These price drops are fundamental in getting us closer to that mission. It doesn’t matter that we’re already 8x cheaper than your bank and already the cheapest way to move money on the planet, we’re not done yet.
We can make these changes as more people and businesses switch from their bank (and PayPal) to TransferWise. As we scale our costs, we’re then able to pass on savings back to you.
For example, when we connect to an instant payment network, we’re able to deliver more of your payments instantly. That means that our product it’s easier and faster to use – it also means it requires less teams to handle and answer your questions. This helps us reduce costs – and prices, too.
These aren't just examples, they are what helped us make transfers cheaper this quarter.
More users means greater efficiency. As more of you trust us with sending money abroad, we become more efficient. This helps us to lower the fees when we send money around the world and pass the savings back to you.
We’re thrilled about these price reductions, and the 15% extra savings for our customers. Yet, it’s only a small step of many more to come towards eventually free.
In the next 12 months we expect millions more customers to benefit from these price drops we did today.
The more people who join the revolution, the faster we can drop prices. Get your friends on board.
