Transferwise can manage this. I think you need to call them to get the USD->USD option made available on their transfer page. Paperwork (provided by you) will probably be required at the receiving bank that certifies the legitimacy of the source of funds. Your relative needs to talk with his/her bank about this and about any limits or surcharges. He/she will need a USD account. There are probably other options but this is the only one I am familiar with (slow but reliably good experience).Hello! I need to send a relative money in USD (they need to actually receive USD and not AR) to pay for something in cash in USD. I am in the US and have accounts in both the US and Europe (not in Argentina) any eideas?
Apparently on smaller amounts the percentage commission charge looms larger and probably it is also a factor of exchange rate. As amounts increase the effect of what is essentially a handling fee diminishes when dealing straight USD. Sending 8K USD->USD via ACH, for example, clocks in for $29.05. I didn't check direct wire or USD->ARS. They have a simple & quick page to run varying calculations so you can find out if Transferwise works for you or, as Henry found, is a loser for the task at hand.I just checked TRANSFERWISE, and they will pay you 83300 AR for a 1000 USD tranfer, plus 22 USD commission!!!
