CWB Wire Service

CWB Wire Service alleviates payment costs

Today, sending payments internationally often means converting Canadian dollars (CAD) to US Dollars (USD), as it is the most accepted currency by businesses globally. But cross border payments aren’t as simple as they appear, and sending your international payments in US dollars can expose many Canadian companies to hidden fees and exchange conversion costs.

When your payment is in CAD or USD, your recipient will eventually convert your dollars back to their local currency, at which time foreign exchange rates and fees applied are beyond your control. CWB Wire Service makes it easy to pay international businesses in their local currency, and ultimately save you money.
