But transferwise charge 0.6€ for a Sepa wire. Here is free. But all depend on what kynd services you need.


#168

No, TW charges you nothing if you use their borderless account, there is no fixed fee for private customers, only for business customers :wink: @LuisCunha


#169

Not anymore. They recently updated their prices.


#171

In my case UBS is saying they will charge me a CHF 5.- fee for a CHF transfer:
Ausführung als Zahlungsauftrag Ausland. Bei der Kostenoption “Alle Kosten zu Lasten Begünstigter” wird der Preis von CHF 5 dem Begünstigten verrechnet (zusätzliche Kosten bei Zahlungen von einem UBS Sparkonto) und zusammen mit allfälligen Fremdkosten vom Überweisungsbetrag abgezogen.


#172

any bank charging for a sending or receiving a SWIFT/SHA or SEPA transfer deserves to be boycotted. you can always move to another.


#173

I transferred CHF 20’000 in May that way and didn’t pay anything, neither side


#174

I agree, but CHF are SWIFT transfer.

For EUR SEPA transfer UBS is charging 0.3CHF, but this is Switzerland so for me this is OK :slight_smile:


#175

SEPA transfers are free with SGKB (St. Galler Kantonalbank) :slight_smile:


#176

I like Wildhaus :slight_smile:


#177

Haha yes, nice place to go skiing :slight_smile:
Do you live in the near of Wildhaus?


#178

Not at all but I spent a whole week there a few years ago :slight_smile:

Thanks for SGKB, I’ll check.


#179

you can open a free german EUR account. Topup with GERMAN bank account to Revolut works without problem.


#180

Topup free of charge in SWITZERLAND works with:

  1. Transwerise (tested)
  2. German Bank account (free of charge and also tested)
    and
  3. some swiss banks accepts SEPA with BIC REVOGB21

#181

How should this help with transferring francs?


#182

REVOGB21 is the BIC for your EUR IBAN. All Swiss banks have to accept it as a SEPA transfer (otherwise you can complain)


#183

No they dont have to accept this…


#184

transferwerise can made in swiss frangs…


#185

Credit Suisse group is not interested to give the opportunity to make free topup to revolut cause " competetitive " to their partner swisscard…


#186

complain didnt helped…tried everything


#187

close the account and move to another bank.
