Wise Fees Are Lower

International transfers in foreign currencies are cheaper with Wise. They do not charge increases on the exchange rates, because the company uses its own accounts in the recipient’s country. How?

Wise does not literally transfer money from one country to another – instead, they transfer the requested amount from Wise’s own account in the recipient’s country to your recipient. This way, the surcharges that normally apply to cross-country transfers do not apply to Wise, allowing them to only charge a small fee from users. This fee is noticeably lower than both bank fees and PayPal rates.

You can not send dollars to Romania so you would have to set up Raul's RON account in Romania (Raul has that info) as the recipient to receive RONs. Raul stated to me that the exchange rate on $250 we sent him was very good and the fee was only $3.81. I think Wise will get the Romania mission work more "bang for the buck" but it is more laborious to set up but once set up it is very easy but perhaps not as quick as the PayPal button. With Wise you can link it straight to your church bank account which is what we did.

Also with Wise you can set up your church as a non-profit organization but you will need to supply them with your EIN number and also a government document proving your orginazation is who you say it is. We sent them a PDF copy of our articles of incorporation and that was enough.

In addition we were asked these things via email:

  • Short description explaining how your organization will use Wise — who will be your recipients or who will send you money, and what will be the reason for payments?

  • What are the estimated amounts you are looking to send or receive on behalf of the organization, and what will be the main currency routes?

  • Full name, date of birth and country of residence for all members who control the organization (board members, directors, trustees etc)

  • Please give us a list of countries where your organization operates.

Our answers to these questions are as follows and to which Wise was satisfied:

To Transfer support of Missionary Work and Printing Ministry being done in Romania by the Sovereign Grace Assembly in Bocsa Romania.

Our support to them will be approximately $250 US per month.

We do not operate in any country. We did have a missionary in Romania that established the work there and eventually the organization of a church there by the name of Sovereign Grace Baptist Assembly, Bocsa Romania.
