    wire transfer is basically a bank to bank transaction. for example if you are into import, the seller who is usually abroad provides you his or her bank details were you can send your money as down payment or as full payment. You then go to your bank and you provide the bank details of your seller or supplier for them to send the money through wire transfer for a fee.however, there are some considerations like
    1. is it a company or an individual person? mas maganda po kung kumpanya ang nagpapadala ng pera at kumpanya din tatangap ng pera. pwede din po tao ang magpapadala ng pera at kumpanya naman makakatangap. madami mo itatanong ang bangko pag you as an individual is also sending money to an individual because of oue anti laundering law.
    2. dapat po kumpleto talaga ang bank details ng padadalhan mo. super hassle po pag may sablay sa details. matutulog sa ere ang pera
    3. ask your bank din po kung correspondence bank nila ang banko ng padadalhan mo. mamamasyal po ang pera mo bago mapunta sa recipient kapag wala silang special relationship.

    pwedeng overnight or isang buwan ikot pera pag may sablay sa number 3 and 3 not considering the hassle. been there po.

    i hope it helps. ciao

    I think it would be wise po to ask your bank. it is possible that the receiving bank is different from the beneficiary bank. the latter being the bank where your buyer maintains his/her account. may mga banks po kasi which maintain accounts sa mga malalaking bangko. this is possibly the receiving bank na may international relationship. dun babagsak padadala mo tapos it will be credited to the account of the beneficiary bank which in turn will be credited sa account mismo ng pinapadalhan mo. ask ur bank po for help. mahirap po maligaw pera, may mga charges po kasama.

    i hope this helps
