Wish your money could teleport (without any travel markups)?
We can (almost) do that. Forget the nonsense of markups and sending money that takes forever to get there, because international money transfers are fast, easy to send, and up to 8× cheaper‡ with EQ Bank powered by Wise.
Up to 8× cheaper‡
Sending your money further shouldn’t mean getting hit with big fees. That why our international money transfers have zero markups or hidden fees.
The real exchange rate
The exchange rate you see online is the exchange rate you get. Pretty cool.
Get your money there fast
Whether you need to send money to family or make payments abroad, it'll get there within 3 business days (and sometimes instantly!)
Send money abroad between errands
Got a busy day? That doesn’t mean you can’t send money internationally in a few easy steps. Send money abroad whenever you want, direct from your account using Wise.
Wise—formerly known as TransferWise—is a money transfer platform that offers a cheap, fast way to send money around the world. Together, we’re able to give customers access to the best digital banking environment possible. Because shouldn’t smart people have access to the smartest tools?
We’ve integrated Wise into our online and mobile banking, so you can send money abroad at the real exchange rate, just like the one you see online. Full transparency. No surprises.
Common questions answered
What if I already have a Wise account?
Not a problem! If you already have a Wise account, you can connect it to your EQ Bank account online or from within our mobile app—nice and simple.
What do you mean by “the real exchange rate”? Is the exchange rate really more expensive with another bank?
Yes, it really is. Other banks in Canada often overinflate fees and none of them give you the real exchange rate. Like EQ Bank, Wise likes to do things differently.
How many currencies do you support/where can I send an international money transfer?
We currently support 46 currencies but it's a growing list—we'll add more when they become available! To see which countries are included, you can click on the handy list below.
How can I view my transaction history and check the status of my international money transfer?
You can view the status of your international money transfer on the International Transfer dashboard. To do so, simply click “Transfers” and choose “Send International Transfer.” This screen will contain your transaction history, and will show your previous transactions as “Pending,” “Completed,” or “Bounce back” (which appears in the case of an error that results in the money being refunded into your account in its entirety).
What information do I need to send an international money transfer to someone?
In order to send an international money transfer, you’ll need to have your recipient’s bank details. Once you have that information, you can add a new recipient and fill in the banking details in the mandatory fields.
