We have some news. Our fees are changing on transfers from USD to LKR.

Here’s how much your transfers will now cost, depending on the amount you send:

Amount Old fee New fee Difference Payment method
$100 $3.00 $3.20 $0.20 more Direct Debit
$250 $3.00 $4.70 $1.70 more Direct Debit
$500 $5.00 $7.20 $2.20 more Direct Debit
$750 $7.50 $9.70 $2.20 more Direct Debit
$1,000 $10.00 $12.20 $2.20 more Direct Debit
$2,500 $25.00 $27.20 $2.20 more Direct Debit
$5,000 $50.00 $52.20 $2.20 more Direct Debit

The fee used to be 1% on amounts up to $5,000, and 0.7% on any remaining amount over $5,000.

The new pricing will be:

  • $2.25 + 1.00% for direct debit and debit cards,
  • $2.25 + 0.85% for wire transfers (note that your bank is likely to charge you $25-50, on top of our fees, for wires),
  • $2.25 + 2.70% for credit cards.
