Wire transfer fees are established at the discretion of the bank instructed to send or receive the wire transfer. Wire transfers are a common means to transfer funds to and from a bank account both domestically and internationally. With most banks, wire transfers can be conducted online, by contacting a bank customer service representative by phone or by visiting a local bank branch.
Wire transfer fees vary from bank to bank and may vary based on the method used to perform the wire transfer such as in branch or online. Wire transfers will also vary depending on whether the transfer is a U.S domestic transaction or involves an international wire transfer. Banks may also have different wire transfers fees for the incoming account and the outgoing account held at the bank where the wire is preformed or received. Current wire transfers with major banks in the U.S. include:
