Do you want to save money on local and international bank transfers?

Sending or receiving international or domestic wire/bank transfers directly with your bank is expensive! You can lose money on exchange rates and hidden bank fees very easily.

Banks use old technology to exchange money, but there is a better way! We recommend you signup for TransferWise, which is much cheaper than normal bank transfers. Using their smart, modern technology:

  • You get the best exchange rate and a low, upfront fee - every time
  • Your money is transferred just as fast as with your bank - and usually much faster!
  • Your money is protected with bank-level security
  • You will be one of over 2 million TransferWise customs in 70 countries transferring 47 currencies

What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transmit money internationally you almost always need to use a BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP code means it may get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

A BIC/SWIFT code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:

AAAA BB CC DDD

  • AAAA: 4 character bank code. Only letters.
  • BB: 2 character country code. ISO alpha-2 country code.
  • CC: 2 character location code.
  • DDD: 3 character branch code. Optional. Can include letters or digits. An XXX here would refer to the primary office.
