Wire transfers are a well-established way to make bank-to-bank funds transfers across international borders. They are available to all freelancers with a valid bank account outside the U.S. using the SWIFT system.
To add a bank account for wire transfers:
- Go to the Accounts menu > Settings > Get Paid
- Click Add Method
- Click the Set Up button for your chosen method
- Enter your bank account details
- Choose a payment schedule and click Next
For security reasons, your new payment method will become active in three days.
It's essential that you enter your bank information correctly. Any errors could result in a failed transfer or delay. Contact your bank if you're not sure you have the correct information or if you received an error when you tried to enter it in our system. Wire transfers' timing and fees vary depending on your bank.
