You can always check the status of the transfer from your Activity feed. Log in to TransferWise. Click on Activity. Find the transfer, and click View transfer details
Transfers can take longer when: You used a slower payment method (eg. bank transfer) - while it costs you less, banks can take 1-2 business days to send us the funds. You sent the money just before weekends and bank holidays - unfortunately banking hours are beyond our control, and can slow down the transfer.
If you want to send money faster; Review and confirm the recipient details are correct. Choose a faster payment method (eg. card payment). Make sure your profile is verified. Please note, if you set up payments close to the weekend, money may not reach the recipient until the next working day.
