About our fees

When you make an international money transfer to the USA through our app, we’ll apply a 0.4% fee to the transaction. That fee is included and taken from the conversion amount, so you’ll always know exactly how much your payment will cost and then you’ll be able to choose from one of the delivery options below. All fees are clearly displayed within the app, so you’ll always know exactly what you’ve paid.
