A wire transfer is a method of electronically transferring funds from one bank account to another. It is a secure and fast way to send money domestically or internationally. The process involves the sender providing their bank with the recipient's account details and the amount they wish to transfer. The funds are then transmitted through a secure network such as SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) to the recipient's bank, and the money is deposited into their account. Wire transfers are commonly used for large transactions, such as purchasing a property or sending money to another country.

Wire transfer is a method of electronic funds transfer between banks or financial institutions across different countries or regions. It involves the movement of money from one account to another via a secure messaging network such as SWIFT. Wire transfers are typically used for transferring large sums of money quickly and securely. They are commonly utilized for business transactions, sending money abroad, or making time-sensitive payments. The sender initiates the wire transfer by providing their bank with the recipient's banking details, including their account number and financial institution's routing number. Once the transfer is authorized, the funds are debited from the sender's account and credited to the recipient's account. Wire transfers are usually subject to fees, and the processing time can vary depending on the banks involved and the currency being transferred.
