Transferring your hard earned money from Europe or anywhere outside of the USA can be challenging and in fact very very expensive to say the least. Most teams will help you get an account to better organize your finances and to make it easier for them to transfer money to you. This is great in fact but the moment that you want to send money home, the local banks and US banks take a bit chunk of pie from your salary and transfer.
There are several banks services around that allow you to send money with low transfer and currency rates.
Transferwise is one of those services that I recommend if you are living abroad. Although the US Dollar is a bit stronger than the past few years, it is still down and if you can send Euros or GBP to your bank and save on the transfer fees, I recommend using Transferwise.
Signing up is fairly easy and sending is very easy.
