How do we collect this data?

The bank fees are based on data obtained online through the respective provider's website. The name of the providers and the date and time of the data collection are listed below.

The data shows the overall cost of sending the specified amount internationally in the currency selected using specified providers.

The cost represents the entire financial cost to consumers and is calculated by adding together the upfront fee and the cost hidden in the exchange rate mark-up. Price comparisons can be verified by establishing the mid-market rate, the provider's upfront cost, and the exchange rate provided.

The data is collected manually and therefore collected on different dates. To make sure the comparison is legitimate, the fee is calculated based on the rate and the mid-market rate on the collection date. Even if there is a difference in the dates collected, the cost displayed and the amount received are based on the exchange rate, upfront fee, and fees of the collection date.

TransferWise is the smart, new way to send money abroad.
