Not too long ago @GeorgeK announced TranferWise.com had aquired Wise.com.

I recently had a member from the UK @Arch ask me if we accepted payments from wise.com which prompted me to look into it.

I'm happy to announce that not only do we now accept Wise.com for sponsorships but after a thorough review I can say they are so much more reasonably priced than PayPal.

I gave up my PayPal account not too far back because their new TOS was bordering on insane.
Who closed their paypal account?

So after going through the signup process, funding my account etc. I can honestly say I'm never going back to PayPal. The bonus is they send you a Visa card that you can use to spend your funds or you can transfer them to your bank account.

Every aspect of wise.com is so much better than PayPal at a fraction of the cost.
I occasionally use dan.com and I only use them on a push. For the price I'm probably going to start using wise. It's easy to give the transfer code, I don't need Dan for that.
I just signed up and already have me debit card for gpay, was super simple.

Yes I got the Google Pay card immediately, it added with a few clicks and the Physical card is on the way.

I can't believe how simple this is compared to PayPal and the fees are way cheaper.
Sold my first domain using Wise to receive payment, it cost my client $3.57 to send the 5k to me. In fact that fee is the same to send any funds in Canada and receiving is free.

My client said signup was no big deal, which was the same for me, and the deal closed quickly.

The domain sold via my market page with the end client contacting me via my contact form (link on my market page)

Here is an example of the fees:

I think PayPal is going to be in a lot of trouble when this thing goes viral.
What are the fees to transfer the funds from Wise to your bank, though?

I paid a 3.57 cent fee on the 5k to move it to my account and I understand that is the standard amount regardless of amount.

My bank account is linked so its easy to move but I like that I can keep my USD in USD for as long as I want. I can run multiple currencies at the same time and so far all fees have been pennies.

See above the fee is always the same, this is for a wire transfer but I can send the 5k or 1 million and the fee is the same.

By using wise, sending to myself without a wire transfer it costs me .66 cents regardless of amount.
