tomcat,

What do they charge? I have not been able to get a clear picture of their fees. They make a BIG point of giving the interbank rate; OK, so how do they make their profit? Or do they kindly do this for people out of the goodness of their pure hearts?

I am planning to transfer a couple of thousand dollars to my PostFinance account. I know, my savings will be small in the big picture, but I do enjoy optimizing financial transactions, whether it is justified or not
No hidden or overt fees that I know of or that I have ever paid. Their cut is baked into the exchange rate they give you, which in my experience over the last 18 months beat the rate my bank here would give me every single time.
