Changes to the bank account details when transferring funds to TransferWise

We’ve made some changes to the details of the bank account at TransferWise which you use to transfer funds in order to complete a  batch. Previously the payee name was “TransferWise”, however this will now display as the name of the profile that you entered when you set up your TransferWise account. 

If you have previously set up and saved “TransferWise” as a payee within your Internet Banking portal, you will need to login and and update the payee name as per the new details displayed on the funding screen in Xero. This is a one-time change. For all subsequent transfers the details should be stored by your bank and therefore only the amount to be transferred and reference needs to be entered.


What will my supplier see on their bank statement when I make a payment using Pay with TransferWise?

In addition to the above change, for all payments processed using Pay with TransferWise, suppliers will now see the name of your TransferWise account (your business name) displayed on their bank statement, instead of just “TransferWise”. This change will ensure your suppliers know that you’ve made a payment to their account.

To ensure the right reference number is passed through to your supplier’s bank account for the bill payment, use the ‘Payee reference’ to enter the invoice/bill reference number provided by your supplier.
