Re: Money transfer from UK

Sure. It may sound flow-ery but it’s actually the technical term for it :p And hey, there's nothing with the term leverage :) That's a good and proper word :) I work in the industry although not...

Re: I'm a 15 year old moving to the USA, would appreciate any help!

Re: Money transfer from UK

Off topic but sure, some good points. There are lots of companies coming up for IPO and there will be lots of opinions about the viability of them.

Re: Money transfer from UK

You would think that they have to make money but in today’s economy, that’s not necessarily the case right? Look at the Uber IPO.

Re: Money transfer from UK

Re: Money transfer from UK

I've been using Circle recently. It's similar to TransferWise but no fees. Only issue is that you're limited in how much you can send a week. If you can plan accordingly, worth a look.

First British Passport Supporting Documents

Hi,

Re: Best method of transferring pounds to dollars

Great experience. Very easy to use. The only issue is the weekly limits. I applied to increase it to $3k and they have no plans to increase it beyond that. However, it's saved me $100s in fees...

Re: Best method of transferring pounds to dollars

I've started using Circle instead of Transferwise. Same rates without fees though. Only problem is that the limits are pretty small ($3k a week).

Re: Question on renewing passport in the USA

Heads up, I send an application last week. You don't need to send photos now for overseas applications. You can just upload a picture from your phone.
