How international money transfers work

International wire transfers work by using the SWIFT network. Before a transfer is approved specific transfer instructions are sent from the sender’s bank to the recipient’s and any fees or charges are assessed. Once one of the banks calculates the exchange rate, the money is moved from your account to the recipient’s.
