Stop Paying For Wise Fees With The Help Of DoNotPay

Wise, formally known as Transferwise, is a financial company that allows a person to exchange money to another form of currency in a matter of minutes. As with other financial software, such as PayPal and Robinhood, there are some fees for different functions in using Wise. Wise was created to help make it easier to exchange different forms of currencies while traveling abroad. What are Wise's fees, and is it possible to avoid them? Read on more to learn how can help you appeal transaction fees as well as other fees when using Wise.

How Much Does Wise Charge Per Transaction

Wise was formed in 2011 as Transferwise. It is based in London and was created to make a way in which people could exchange currency in a quick and hassle-free way. Wise monitors current exchange rates to easily convert currencies within minutes. The following are the additional fees that could affect each transaction:

  • 3.55 EUR: This is added for transfers outside of SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area) countries.
  • 7.5 USD: This fee is added to transactions that are received through a USD wire payment.
  • 0.35%: A conversion fee that is added to the total amount of a transaction when it is converted to another currency.
  • An Additional 0.35%: This sending fee is added to the total amount being sent in a transaction.

What Are Wise's Other Associated Fees

There are additional fees that Wise may add on depending on the type of transaction and more; they are as follows:

  • ATM Fees

If you withdraw over 200 GBP (Great British Pounds) per month, you will be charged 1.75% of the total amount withdrawn in that month, plus .50 GBP per transaction.

  • Over 15,000 EUR In Account

When your account holds over 15,000 EUR, you will be charged an annual percentage rate of .4%, which will be divided up and charged monthly.

  • Wise Debit Card

To get a Wise debit card, you will be charged a one-time fee of 5 GBP.

  • Investment With Wise

If you decide to invest in Wise, you will be charged an annual percentage rate fee of .55%.

How To Prevent Occurring Wise Fees

Avoiding and/or preventing fees on your own can be difficult when using Wise. Because they offer transparent fees, there aren't many options for avoiding fees, except by only choosing the free services. The following are four ways in which Wise suggests to reduce or prevent unwanted fees:

  1. You will receive a discount for your first transaction of over 500 GBP when you are referred to Wise by a Wise account member. If the transaction is under 500 GBP, your first transaction will be free.
  2. Only withdrawing less than 200 GBP in 2 or less transactions per month will prevent withdrawal fees.
  3. Keeping an account balance under 15,000 GBP will help avoid account fees from occurring.
  4. Spending the currency in your account, without changing the form of currency already in your account, can help to avoid currency exchange fees.

When it comes to keeping up with the fees that can occur while using your Wise account, it can be frustrating and somewhat confusing. The small fees can also add up, making it expensive in the long run. What if there was a way in which to avoid the fees all together to keep costs low and affordable? That is where DoNotPay comes in!
