TransferWise – How to pay for your order with credit card funds

TransferWise is a new and somewhat revolutionary ‘borderless’ way to move money and pay for goods & services. It is very secure and has exchange rates way better and fees way cheaper than banks (you can save USD$30 – 60 per transaction). They have 1.5 million customers worldwide (2018) and move around US$1.3 billion per month. Once your account is set up, and has funds on-hand, making payments is quick and easy. You feed your account from your credit card so a cash advance fee may be applied by your bank but you will win on the exchange rates and very low transfer fees which is what really counts.
