Wire Transfer Overview

Wire transfers are when you transfer money to someone else electronically. This is done through a network that is run by banks and other transfer services all over the world.

    How International Wire Transfer Is Done


    SWIFT helps banks communicate securely and quickly with each other. Today, SWIFT is a communication network connecting over 10,000 financial institutions in over 200 countries. SWIFT sends payment instructions from one bank to another.

    The BIC code is used to identify banks when making international payments. A bank joins the SWIFT network by getting a code assigned by SWIFT – the organization.

    How Long Does International Wire Transfer Take?

    Even though your bank processes an international transfer on a business day, it doesn’t mean the money will reach your recipient’s bank account on the same day. What happens after you make the payment instruction is out of your control. We wish we could see real-time SWIFT transfers, but we’re not quite there yet. Usually, an international transfer takes 1 to 5 business days to reach its final destination. Zil makes it easy and convenient to do international wire transfers, so you don’t have to worry about the process taking too long.

    Domestic Wire vs International Wire

    • Domestic Wire Transfers: A domestic wire transfer is when you send money from one bank to another bank in the same country. There are two types of domestic wire transfers: inter-bank and intra-bank. The sender might need a code or the recipient’s branch number if they want to make the payment. These transactions are usually processed on the same day they are initiated and can be received within a few hours.
    • International Wire Transfers: International wire transfers are payments that are sent from one country to another. The sender needs to start the payment, even if the person they’re sending money to also has an account at the same bank. To make an international wire transfer, you need a routing code and the bank name where the person you’re sending money to has their account.

    Zil offers secure and convenient wire transfers between different countries. The rates are affordable, so it is a good option for people who need to transfer money.

    Overall, if you need to make an international wire transfer, Zil is the perfect solution. With Zil, you can quickly and securely transfer funds to anyone outside the country at affordable rates. Zil makes it easy, whether you’re paying a bill, transferring money, or making a purchase. International wire transfers through Zil are processed in 1 to 5 business days, so you can rest assured that your money will get where it needs to go quickly and efficiently.
