Alternative Payment Solution: TransferWise

Summary

TransferWise is a global cross-border money transfer solution. Founded in the UK in March 2010, the solution now enables users to transfer money globally in 47 currencies to the recipient’s bank account.

TransferWise operates on a P2P money transfer model with a network of international accounts around the world. Instead of transferring the sender's money directly to the recipient in the foreign country, TransferWise redirects them to the recipient of another transfer going in the opposite direction, thereby eliminating the need for currency conversion and for funds to actually cross borders. This means Transferwise can offer lower transaction fees than its competitors.

To diversify its portfolio, in May 2017 TransferWise introduced the multi-currency Borderless account for businesses, which was later extended to individual customers. Account holders are offered a Mastercard-branded contactless debit card that can be used for in-store and online payments, and for cash withdrawals at ATMs, in multiple currencies.
