ABA transfer to th UK

Post by WillieW »

To send US Dollars back to the UK with transferwise. They have provided me with a Swift Code ending in XXX which ABA Bank says does not exist. However I have searched online and found the wise Bank in the UK Barclays in Churchill Place in London and found their Swift Code and sort code and all the information .would I be safe enough just to use that information to transfer the money? Also there is no space on the ABA app to put in the reference number that wise request you put in is it safe enough to send the money without that reference number? Wise seem to be expletive useless they don't even reply to my queries I have sent them three inquiries asking for proper codes to send the money and they don't even bother replying.

Easiest and cheapest way is to send via PayPal. You can't recieve money into a PayPal account in cambodia but you can send, maybe look into that?

You’ll be much safer using the bank details from the app rather than something you’ve found online.
If you transfer ABA to Wise UK then you are at the risk of ABa doing the currency conversion. If that happens then you lose all the benefits of wise.
Transfer to wise US, then convert in app, then send from wise UK to your UK account.
Wise customer service is decent, but not speedy.

What matters is which address the PayPal account in question has been opened with. If it's an address in Cambodia, such a PayPal account is more limited than in many other countries.
