Payment with Wise

Payment with Wise

We always strive to create a convenient experience for all of our clients. One thing that we offer is different payment methods, so you can choose one that best suits your own preferences.

Besides bank transfers, PayPal, and cryptocurrency, we also receive payments via (formerly known as TransferWise).

Most clients would like to choose bank transfers for better accountability.

Besides making payment directly from your bank account, we also recommend using (primarily for non-US customers), as they offer a much better exchange rate and minimum transfer fees.

The whole transfer process is usually faster than that of other types of bank transfers.

In our case, we often receive the transfer in our bank account within 10 minutes during business hours (Monday to Friday).

Why Do We Use Wise?

  • Wise is well-known for its low-cost money transfers. They’re often the cheapest option compared to other wire transfer methods or almost always in the top three least expensive.
  • We also want to help our clients get the real exchange rate so they can dodge those nasty, hidden fees that some other providers charge. If you are not in the US, most likely your credit card will charge you a higher exchange rate compared to Wise.
  • It’s safe. Wise is properly regulated by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in the USA and other agencies around the world. They also use the latest encryption technology and security.
  • Not to mention that Wise is also quick and easy to use. You can simply create an account and get everything up and running quickly after your account is verified.

How to Pay via Wise

If you want to use Wise to pay your invoice, please follow the steps below, so you can rest assured that your payment will be sent to us.

Step #1. Make sure you have a Wise account

Create an account with this link to get a free transfer fee of up to 500 GBP.

Depending on your country, it may take a while to get verified. Wise has a quite thorough KYC process that you must follow to avoid money laundering.

Step #2. Add Recipient

If you already have a Wise account, click on “Recipients” from your account dashboard and go to Add a recipient.

Step #3. Enter our company’s bank details

Fill out the details with our company’s bank details that you received in the invoice.

If you have a question, feel free to send us an email, and we’ll help you to fill out the required fields.

Once you have our bank details, press “Confirm” to save our details as your recipient.

Note: Once you’ve saved the details as a recipient, you can’t edit them. If you made a mistake and need to edit the information, you’ll need to delete the recipient and redo it.

After you add our bank account as a recipient and make sure everything’s right, you can simply proceed to the payment process. Please make sure you didn’t miss any number on the bank account number.

Step #4. Send money

Click the green “Send Money” button to set up your transfer.

Wise will automatically calculate the fee, the exact exchange rate used, and the final amount the recipient will receive.

You can also see an estimated timeline for when the amount will arrive.

Once everything’s set up, click on “Continue.” Double-check and review your transfer details, click on “Confirm and continue.”

Step #5. Choose your transfer type and how to pay

PayPal Wise Guides

Depending on your country, Wise offers several payment methods that let you fund your transfer, including:

  • ACH to a Wise account
  • Wire transfer to a Wise account
  • A debit card linked to your bank account
  • A credit card
  • When using the Wise mobile app, you can also pay with Google Pay and Apple Pay (only for select countries)

And it does cost you slightly different fees — depending on what you choose to pay for the transfer.

Most of the time, wiring the payment from a bank account is the cheapest option, while debit or credit cards charge slightly more (but the transfer process is faster).

Wise will provide the fees for each option so you can compare which one has the cheapest fee. In our experience, the difference is insignificant unless you are transferring a large amount of money.

Once you choose how to pay, click on “Continue to Payment.

Step #6. Finishing the process

Continue following the instructions until you reach a screen where you’re notified your payment is being processed.

Wise will confirm the transfer via email or the app.

We’ll also get notified when your payment is due.

That’s all!

Everything about the Payment Option on Wise

As mentioned slightly before, Wise offers several payment options from which you can choose.

Some options are much faster and instant, while others are much cheaper.

The payment method you choose also depends on the country from which you’re making the payment.

Here are the top options you can choose from when making the payment with Wise:

  1. Bank transfer. This is highly recommended for accountability purposes and pretty much is the cheapest option available as it lowers the fee. You can use online banking or mobile banking. The catch is that the transfer process may take longer.
  2. Debit card. If you’re really in a hurry or need to make the payment fast, you can use a debit card. A debit card mostly is a bit cheaper than a credit card and that will basically arrive immediately (in a couple of minutes).
  3. Credit card. Wise accepts Visa, Mastercard, and some Maestro cards. This payment method is more expensive to process than debit cards, but it transfers your payment instantly. Some banks may charge extra for this, so please make sure that you know what you’re doing if you’d like to use this option.

Common Errors When Paying With Bank Transfer

Below are some common issues that often occur when you make a payment with a bank transfer:

Your name on the bank account doesn’t match the name on your Wise account

Make sure that the name on the sender’s bank account matches the account name on Wise.

Some exceptions:

  • You’re paying from a joint account, or
  • You’re paying as a business through your Wise Business account.

This means you can’t have someone else (with a different Wise account) pay for you. You should always pay from your own account.

There’s a mistake with the bank details.

It’s crucial to always double-check that the bank details you’ve entered match the ones that Wise showed you in the bank transfer detail screen.

Any mistakes will cause an error in your payment, and the money will be rejected. Don’t worry. It will get back to you.

You forget to add the reference number

Wise will send you a reference number with the rest of their bank details to receive your payment (which they’ll later send to us) through bank transfer. This number helps Wise identify your payment.

Make sure to include them in your bank account payment.

If you forget to do so, the payment will likely get delayed as Wise tries to find your money and the details of the transaction.

You can speed up the process by sending them proof of a payment document.

Common Errors When Paying With Cards

When you choose to pay with debit cards or credit cards and an error message appears on your screen after you try to pay, there are several possible reasons:

Payment declined by your bank

This is the most common reason why your transfer is unsuccessful. Your bank has declined it, meaning that it doesn’t allow Wise to take the money.

This happens mostly because the payment looks unusually large or you transfer to a completely new recipient.

You can call your bank and let them know that you indeed want to make this payment and inform them that Wise is a trusted recipient.

Payment declined by Wise

It can be because your card was issued in a country that Wise doesn’t currently support. If this is the case, you can choose other payment options instead, such as bank transfers.

3D Secure verification issue

A payment error can also be caused by your internet browser which leads to 3D secure verification issues. To fix this, you can enable cookies and clear your cache.

If these don’t work, we’d recommend switching to incognito mode if you are using Google Chrome or another ‘private’ option with other browsers.

Browser Issues

Software or antivirus installed on the device can affect the payment. You need to make sure that  Wise is on the list of “safe merchants” on your antivirus software.

Bottom Line

Wise allows you to speed up transactions while keeping the payment method accountable for your business. Another option that most of our customers use when sending wire transfers is
