We know you'll want to understand exactly how this change affects you, so we've written this post with all the information you'll need. Heads up – this post is divided into 2 general sections:

1. Why we’re changing our fees

Why they’re going down on most transfers and up on others.

2. The new fees

If you’re not very interested in the “why”, and you just want to know how the new pricing will affect your transfers, go straight to the new fees.

Why we're changing our fees

We believe sending money to another country should be as quick, easy and cheap as sending an email. Yes, we think it should be free.

We’re not there yet, but that’s what we’re shooting for.

Why most fees are going down

When we opened for business, we based our fees on how much we thought transfers would cost us to process.

Since then, we’ve gotten better at what we do, and our costs have gone down on many transfer amounts and routes. We’ve lowered our fees in those places, which means lots of you will be able send money for even less.

Why some fees are going up

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, some transfers still cost us a little more than we originally estimated.

We’ve raised our fees on those transfers to cover our costs. We know that this isn't great news for the people whose fees are going up, and we're sorry about that.

We'll bring those fees back down as soon as we can.

The new fees in more detail

The table below shows the new fees for sending money to yourself, and sending money to someone else — paying either by boleto or bank transfer.

To keep costs down, you can now pay by bank transfer. It’s always 3BRL cheaper than paying with Boleto. Bear in mind though, that some banks might charge you for making a bank transfer.

The IOF (Imposto sobre Operações Financeiras) is already included in the fees you see below. If you’re sending money to yourself, the IOF is 1.1%, and if you’re sending to someone else, it’s 0.38%. This makes transfers to other people a little cheaper.
