Neon bank x Transferwise

Neon bank has now integrated transferwise into their app, making it easier to send money overseas.With Revolut decreasing its transfer limit and increasing transfer fees, perhaps this might be a better option for some?


disclaimer: i have no affiliation with Neon nor Transferwise. Do not consult strangers online for financial help.

Re: Neon bank x Transferwise

I thought this was great at first, but then noticed that Neon adds on a “TransferWise convenience fee” if you use it in the app. The conversion rate is the same, as is the TransferWise fee, but when I tested 1000chf and compared, the Neon value had around 4chf extra on it for the stated reason. Not a lot I know, but still if you do it many times a year then it all adds up...

Neon website states this:

“The fee is composed by two parts: the TransferWise fee and the convenience fee (that we get). The TransferWise fee consist of a small fixed fee and a variable percentage - the larger the amount, the smaller the percentage. The convenience fee is always 0.4%“

Re: Neon bank x Transferwise

transfer from Neon to Transferwise was free even before.

The problem is how to move CHF to a CHF account abroad...

Transferwise still charges a fee for that.
