|#27||Transfast– Read Review||71.0%||Remittances (USA based and oriented)||Transfast is yet another remittances company focused on enabling immigrants to transfer money abroad online for a fraction of the costs of Moneygram and the likes.

|#28||72.0%||Small Remittances Transfers||TransferGo has 8,000 reviews online with very high percentage of satisfaction. The fees are low, and the markup is only up to 2.2% per transfer.

|#29||71.0%||Medium to Large Transfers, Individuals and SMEs||PureFX appears to be a solid FX firm, but it is not one of the largest or better known firms of this type.

Natwest is significantly larger than any commercial FX provider out there, and undergoes much stringent regulation. On the other hand, you would not get the same level of support with Natwest as you do with (good) commercial currency brokerages. Natwest’s rates have been consistently worse than any money transfer company we have tested.||Visit Link N/A|
|#33||N/A||Remittances – Online and on Branch, Receive in Bank Account or Cash||The largest and most global payments provider out there bar none.

Who is Money Transfer Comparison?
We have been reviewing money transfer service providers since 2014 and pride ourselves in being the largest and most comprehensive website when it comes to reviews. We were also the first who came up with the concept – a money transfer comparison site whose focal point is the live rates offered by each provider, which is fairly easy to manipulate, but the trustworthiness of each of the providers. We have been receiving hundreds of positive comments on the site and have helped individuals and businesses transfer more than £300,000 abroad since inception. You are welcomed to read more about us on our about us page.
Here are some words about how the industry evolved over the past 5 years by our Managing Director, Alon Rajic:
When we started Money Transfer Comparison, there was a selected number of money transfer providers to choose from. Some of main players in the market such as OFX , WorldFirst, Global Reach or Moneycorp, had completely different focuses than they do today.
OFX had separate local companies in each country, World First just started building their online registration streamlined process, Moneycorp had a majority of their business still done on the phone, and Global Reach were serving corporate clients exclusively. The largest money transfer provider of 2019, Transferwise was a small fry then, and the industry as a whole was doubtful the company would ever reach its critical mass.
The industry has definitely evolved and has become more competitive since these days and it bodes well with clients. Nowadays, money transfer reviews focus on different areas – the quality of online platform and smoothness of mobile app – hence, even the smallest money transfer providers who have high aspiration, focus on these areas and they are significantly better than anything you could find 5 years ago. Additionally, the increased competition has lead to a “race to the bottom” and margins today are significantly lower than 5 years ago, almost across the board.
How do we create these money transfer reviews?
These money transfer provider reviews we have created have been based on a thorough analysis of each of the company’s websites, a comprehensive research and analysis in regards to the feedback each company has online, what has been written about the company in the media, and in most cases also via directly interacting with the company’s representatives. Additionally to the above, we are constantly getting feedback from content or disgruntled clients via email or our comment section allowing us to modify and improve the scoring and the review itself. We feel we give a well-rounded analysis of each money transfer service provider’s pros and cons.
How do you make money
In a similar fashion to almost any personal finance website on the web, such as Money Saving Expert, Moneysupermarket, or Finder, we get paid for introductions we make towards currency providers. Upon clicking on certain links on our website, a reader is referred to a company with out referral ID. We only establish such referral deals with our most recommended providers after they have passed meticulous testing.
How is this page different from top-list on your homepage?
This page details all the providers our staff has reviewed since 2014. This page is destined for people who want to see a wide array of options and a myriad of money transfer providers with different purposes. On the contrary, our homepage is mostly focused on our main target audience – individuals and businesses who need to move tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds (or equivalent). Our homepage has a smaller subset of only the best money transfer companies for the aforementioned purposes.
Do we intend to add more money transfer reviews to this list?
The answer is maybe. We are constantly being contacted by money transfer providers who are eager to be added to our list of global money transfer providers (and specifically to our top 10 money transfer provider list), but we are currently only be considering to review providers that demonstrate large transfer volumes and offer something else our current recommended providers don’t demonstrate.
Are these all online money transfer providers?
The short answer is that the vast majority of the providers appearing on our list have a solid online platform for money transfers, but not all of them. Some of the companies listed have no online platform at all (example: Currency Index) and some have a simplistic platform that doesn’t allow clients to conduct big transactions. We recommend that you will delve into the international money transfer company reviews of each company if you are considering to use it and want to see what we think about its online system.
Is the entire list composed of UK money transfer service providers?
No. Most of these companies are registered in the UK being the central hub of international money transfer providers, but some are registered elsewhere (example: Currencyfair in Ireland or Xoom and Afex in the USA).
