TransferWise promotes the disclosure of total transaction costs. The total cost (fees plus the currency conversion charge) of making a cross-border payment from one account to another is clearly shown in the sender’s currency.

Transparency is vital to help those budgets go further, as the World Bank has highlighted that a lack of transparency is the single biggest factor leading to high remittance prices”, explains Flora Coleman in a blog.
