    Question Sending Bank Wire.... anyone do it online for free?

    Hate paying my 3 different banks varying 30-45$ fees plus the drive there plus the wait plus the hassle.

    Would like to have some online company just link a bank account with as ACH or something to put money into it and just wire out to our overseas friends just like that w a few mouse clicks.... anyone use a company like this?

    I bank with Chase and I do not get charged for bank wire payments online. If you bank online it is likely you can send a wire online as well. Sometimes there is a fee at the receiving bank which my bank will tell me about. I cover it.

    None of my banks allow wires to be sent online you have to go in person.
    I found a few companies on google that say they do what I want but no way am I giving them my full account info and sending 5grand to them to disappear without hearing some reviews and advice from members here...

    Completely agree about passing on personal info and bank routing numbers! Not sure where you live but if you send a lot of wires (like I do) it may be worth your while to research local institutions which have services that you need without additional fees.

    I used TransferWise to pay for a BK. I had no problems and the charges were very low in comparison to others. It was BK that recommended/suggested them to me as an option.

    Transferwise has been recommended to me in the past but since I have had to issues sending bank wires for free from my Chase account, I've not looked into them.

    well I sent almost 1200 thru transfer wise before the weekend and of course its saying
    "Sorry, we didn't get your money yet, we have a slight delay on our side, but your money should be on its way to us soon. We'll let you know when it arrives"
    and then read about this...

    See if your bank offers Zelle. It's basically a wire transfer to another's account. I used it with Sead without issue, very low fee.
    We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.

    Wire transfer has 2 fee components: your bank charge fee and the receiving bank charge fee also.

    Online payment that is free of these fees is bitcoin if your dealer accept this method. No personal info is exchanged or needed, complete anonymous.

    If itīs first time you use Transferwise it takes 2-3 days

    You didnīt mentioned where you from but I guess the U.S. so you should try Revolut. Itīs really for free

    @Cr7juv I guess it took more time for me for some verification purposes, only the first time (for me) (Transferwise)

    Bankwire do you know if itīs global, like PP for example? Some of them are only US based

    or we talk about a normal bankwire?
