Wire transfers allow you to send or receive money from anywhere in the world through an electronic transfer of funds. Both individuals and businesses can send a wire transfer and funds are available the same day if sent from a domestic bank.
During wire transfer, different currencies can be accepted and are exchanged on your behalf at the time of deposit. Because a wire transfer is an electronic transfer of funds, funds sent are considered “collected” and are available immediately upon receipt.
