Paying by card
For a selection of currencies, you can pay for your transfer by debit or credit card. There is a small surcharge for paying by card. If you'd like to avoid payment fees, you can always pay by bank transfer.
Transferwise accepts Visa, MasterCard and some Maestro cards that have a 16 digit card number.Transferwise can only accept payments from locally issued cards, so for example GBP cards must be issued in the UK, EUR cards must be issued in the SEPA area etc.
Like a bank transfer, the money must come from your own bank account. So, the name on your card must match the name on your TransferWise account. If it does not, please be aware that your transfer will be delayed and potentially cancelled.
TransferWise charges an additional fee for using business cards. The fee is charged only because the card companies charge an equivalent fee. Transferwise does not make a profit when they charge you in order to use a business card to pay for your transfer.
This fee is charged on cards regardless if the payment is made using a private or business profile.

How TransferWise works
Transferwise operates on the principle of money without borders. TransferWise routes payments not by transferring the sender's money directly to the recipient, but by redirecting them to the recipient of an equivalent transfer going in the opposite direction. TransferWise's system has been compared to the hawala money transfer system.
Likewise, the recipient of the transfer receives a payment not from the sender initiating the transfer, but from the sender of the equivalent transfer. This process avoids currency conversion and transfers crossing borders. The markups applied usually are not volume-dependent which of benefit to individuals who are sending small regular transfers abroad.
Simply put,when you pay into a transferWise bank account in your country. We pay your recipient from our account in their country using the real exchange rate.
On their website, it says, "Banks could charge you up to 5% in hidden costs when sending money to any bank account abroad. TransferWise is up to 8x cheaper. It's only fair."
- It is a simple, fast and secure process
- There are no hidden fees
- Multiple sending options. You can send funds using ACH, or a debit card, credit card, or Bank Transfer.
- Only inbound transactions are available in Nigeria (in most banks)
