  • Great if you want to transfer funds to Poland almost immediately.
  • Not so good if you need to send money beyond the Eurozone.

EasySend exchange rates and fees

EasySend charges between 99p and £3.50 for standard FAST transfers which can take up to 2 working days. It charges a flat fee of £3.99 for its SuperFAST transfers, which it claims will send money to Poland and other select countries in just 10 minutes.

The first transfer is free, and every 10th standard FAST transfer is also free, which is great if you want to make frequent transfers.

It also adds a margin to the mid-market exchange rate, so make sure to compare it to the rate you see on Google or XE to see the difference.

How does EasySend make money?

EasySend charges set fees and it also adds on a small margin to the interbank exchange rate, which is why the exchange rate you see on Google or XE is different from the one EasySend is quoting. Exchange rate margins vary from company to company.

What is EasySend?

EasySend was set up in 2006 by Robert Lewandowski and Gniewko Juralewicz, two Polish friends who had gone to work in Northern Ireland and wanted to make it easier and cheaper to send money back home.

Since then it’s carried out almost 49 million transfers for over 100,000 customers. And they’re happy customers, too. EasySend says it prides itself on top-quality customer service and trust, and it indeed has excellent customer reviews on Facebook and Trustpilot.

In a nutshell

  • Competitive fees. First transfer is free, as well as every 10th standard transfer.
  • Security features. Encrypted SSL, mandatory two-step verification, automatic account logout.
  • Excellent customer service. Scores 4.8 out of 5* on Trustpilot and is open 6 days a week.
  • Cash pick-up. Recipients in select countries can collect cash – and from the Post Office in Poland, so there’s no need for a bank account.
