OMG - how fast is Revolut international transfer??

Been using Wise for years to send USD overseas.
Just used Revolut for the 1st time for the same international transfer. Same bank and country.
Wise took 2-3 days normally.

Less than 2 hours!!! Swift transfer.
Metal so got 40% off the fee also.



That’s some good work!


Yep was in awww. Expected 2 or 3 days.
Sometimes domestic transfers overseas take longer.

Wise must use a slow intermediate bank.

Exceptional service and only cost 2.39 usd to send 8k


Wise always claimed the delay was on the receiving bank side.
Not true.
Nothing against wise. They have always provided good services and will continue to maintain my account.

But looks like revolut avoid intermediate banks due to the speed

Are you based in the UK or elsewhere? Curious to know if it’s global speed or native etc.

International Transfers are complicated.
Wise and Revolut even use the same 3rd party providers on some paths.
So the experiences is always a bit… specific to a certain transaction an may even be only a snapshot in time.

So providing more info’s about the source and destination (country, currency…) in that such cases could help others in the future!

In general all entities in the money transfer business aim to for cheaper and faster outcome than, say, a SWIFT transfer. That’s the whole point.

Bottom line: Your milage may vary! Always good to check your options depending on your needs though! This community can be helpful if more users share their (specific) experiences!
