Next, you’ll need to pay by bank transfer, directly through your bank. So leave your TransferWise account, and set up your bank transfer directly with your bank — either through your online banking, through telephone banking, or in person at a bank branch.

If you’re making a bank transfer from a UK bank, which is under the limit set by your bank, you may also see an option called Log in and approve.
