What are your Fees? (Don’t worry- we’re transparent here too!)
Paymentearth is committed to offering a fully transparent, state-of-the-art platform for international payments.
The Power of Transparency means our clients always know the TRUE cost of their transaction, including any fees!
Is your average payment over $5,000.00 USD worth?
Ask how you can avoid wire fees entirely!
How do I really know what I’m paying now?
With over 50 years of international payments’ expertise, we understand that finding an international payment provider worthy of your trust can be daunting, if not nerve-wracking! Too many banks and brokers rely on “bait and switch” tactics to get their foot in the door, only to raise their margins at their first opportunity.
Paymentearth is committed to offering truly international payment transparent pricing– not only will we provide nationally published interbank prices (market rates), we’ll also show you how to calculate your Live rate with your set (fixed) margin.
Your global payments are OUR business, and we believe good business is fair, transparent, and reliable- every time.
Skeptical? Or maybe just curious?

The beauty of transparent, fixed pricing is that we’ll prove our Value with every trade… and with nothing to hide, we often find our fixed pricing is half the cost of most brokerages, and banks!
What about Settlement? (How do we pay Paymentearth?)
We’re happy to take your money (for trades, that is)! Most clients settle via fast, free, and secure ACH (Automated Clearing House), while some prefer to send us a wire (totally fine too).
Paymentearth will initiate a debit of the selected USD account (clients can add multiple accounts) on the day of trade; no further action, calls, or hassles required.
Do you charge for ACH (Automated Clearing House)?
ACH transactions are FREE with Paymentearth. In reality, they cost us less than a buck to process, and we prefer to sleep soundly at night knowing we’re not nickle-and-diming our clients.
Some exchange houses pad their margin by tacking on an “ACH fee,” but at Paymentearth, the upfront cost is the total cost.
What about the Wire Fee, aka “Per Transaction Charge?”
Is your average payment more than $5,000 USD? Congrats! You’ll likely never pay a fee with Paymentearth!
Sending smaller payments, but still want low fees?
Send your wire via “Local Payment,” and we charge $1.00 per wire. That’s right- 100 pennies, or less than a pack of gum.
*These payments can take a day or two longer to credit, but funds arrive in full (no interbank “lifting fees”) and are a great cost savings when absolute urgency is not a requirement!
What about sending SWIFT payments?
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) provides a network that enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions in a secure, standardized and reliable environment.
Urgent (re: get it there ASAP) and expedited payments are available through the SWIFT network, with the added benefit of SWIFT receipts and MT103 reports.
SWIFT has been a tried and true method for efficiently delivering payments from one country to another for years. The system is constantly being refined and updated and is already able to facilitate credit on Same Day, or Next Day, with fully traceable SWIFT receipts. We offer this payment method, regardless of wire size, for an additional $8.00 per transaction.
What if I have to send USD? Can I send USD domestically (within the USA)?
We also offer U.S. dollar wires for value-added convenience, at a rate of $30.00 US per wire.
Do you guys use blockchain? How else can we send funds?
Ongoing Advancements– Paymentearth has partnered with Ripple, the “frictionless” way to send money globally, and can send payments via blockchain technology. As this network grows, and becomes a more commonplace payment option, rest assured that Paymentearth’s developing payment services will offer the most competitive, transparent pricing.

Our clients are thrilled!
My guy at Paymentearth took the time to explain how Forward Contracts work, and how they can help my business. My bank never gave me half the attention of Paymentearth.
Almost any bank can help get a wire out, if that’s all you need. Paymentearth goes above and beyond for us though, and for a small business like ours, it makes a big difference to get such expert service. Of course, the rates are good too!
Paymentearth makes uploading an excel file of all my monthly payments very easy! I upload it on their site and I’m able to print a confirmation in minutes! When we combine this with transparency and knowing our exact spread, it is a no brainer!
In my experience, banks are only willing to bend over backward if you’re a giant company. I’ve never felt that with Paymentearth. These guys are upfront, they’re knowledgeable, and they genuinely seem to value my business. It’s actually a pretty good feeling.
We used to use three FX companies in order to keep the rate reasonable. With Paymentearth, they walked us through how to calculate the exact spread we get on every deal! A big time saver and a great way to do business!
There is a big move toward transparency in FX, but then it can be impossible to actually talk to a real person. With Paymentearth, they analyzed my business, gave me a fixed rate, and I can call them anytime. Frankly, they’re just straight-up, and I appreciate that.
It’s not often that we need foreign cash, but it’s very convenient to order what we need from Paymentearth, and have one less thing to worry about before the trip.
