The Trouble With Bank Wires
You’re already working to get paid. Why should you work harder, only to pay for your own money? You’re not employed by your bank. You’ve already earned your cash.
Some banks have at least a five-step process for international money transfers. As a small business owner, or a consumer, here’s everything you need to know about the recipient’s account before you can send money online. First, you have to communicate with your recipient before starting the process. This means waiting.
The basics you need before sending a bank wire include recipient bank name, address and country, account number (IBAN), SWIFT/BIC or National ID, currency of recipient’s account (foreign currency or U.S. dollars), and the purpose of wire.
That’s without any complications that may arise.

Here’s a typical bank wire transfer fees breakdown:
Incoming domestic wire: $15
Incoming international wire: $16
Outbound domestic wire: $30
Outbound international wire sent in foreign currency: $35
Outbound international wire sent in U.S. dollars: $45
So what do these fees cover?
Mostly just the assurance that a bank is handling the transfer. Most people feel more comfortable with a bank wire for security purposes. It’s like brand name clothes. You pay more for the name.
