How to Reduce the Costs of International Money Transfers

Reduce the costs of global money transfers and power your business expansion.

Remote work has become so popular that it’s common for businesses to need to make international money transfers to pay remote workers. However, whether it’s to suppliers, gig workers, employees or anyone else, disbursing funds internationally can get expensive. 

While paying people internationally comes with challenges, deciding not to work with suppliers and contractors from overseas can significantly hold your business back.

How can a business looking to grow its global outreach balance the potential cost of international money transfers with the benefits of a global network? By using an international money transfer gateway provider that demonstrates value in both costs and features.

How International Money Transfers Work for Businesses

International payouts come with additional complexities, including working with different banks, financial institutions, currencies and regulations.

When a business sends a cross-border payment the money leaves in their currency and has to get to the recipient in their local currency. 

If your business is paying an international freelancer in Asia who has done some work for your business, then on top of the time taken for the money to be transferred internationally, you will also have to factor in the currency conversion costs and transfer fees from these types of payments.

B2B International Money Transfers

There’s no escaping the fact that the costs involved in international money transfers can make them very expensive. And there are additional considerations for B2B transactions, which are generally dealt with via invoices and consist of more significant amounts of money. This adds to the time taken from invoicing to payment being made and can come with even more hidden costs in the form of the extra time to manage invoicing and payments processing.

Paying Remote Workers

Businesses using international workers and contractors want to pay them quickly, in their own currency and without extra fees shouldered by the worker. Businesses often go out of their way to keep the payment process smooth and painless for their workers, which can mean the business is left with extra costs.
