Receiving an international money transfer

Posted by David David
Message 1 of 4 674 Views

Hi,

 

My partner will be moving here from the US, and has some questions about transfer fees. Having looked at the information here, we're still not entirely sure if Bankwest will charge additional fees on top of the $10 acceptance fee - for example, would there be a conversion fee from USD to AUD? If anyone could clear things up for us, that'd be great.

 

Thanks!

Hi @David, from Bankwest there is just the $10 acceptance fee however other bank charges and fees are unknown to us (from the bank the funds are being transferred). This could mean that you may receive a lesser amount in your account of what the sender had originally sent. Other bank fees and Agent fees are out of our control. It would be best to check with the bank the funds will be sent from so you know their fees to send money internationally. Hope that helps Smiley Happy
