You're right. I also receive directly in u$s from clients outside upwork by means of a corresponsal in USA
Because the money goes from the account of my client to the account of the corresponsal in USA (Wells Fargo or others) and the corresponsal sends the money to Banco Galicia with a specified messages.
Then Banco Galicia moves that money to my account.
What I couldn't do was to set my Galicia Account in the upwork Payment Method Form. But I could do that for HSBC and for Banco Rio
Hi Jose Alberto, some questions about your message:
How long has been since you last tried direct transfer to santander rio in Argentina?
and how do you set the intermediary bank in the upwork form?, because Santander uses one too
Basically how do you enter all the swifth message information and where because the memo field doesn't accept the length of a swift message.
Just to inform and stop making confussion about this topic.
Wire transfer work as expected using santander rio Account number (not CBU)
Fees as described above.
50 usd + 0.125%
In case you have questions contact Comex (Foreign commerce from your banck and upwork help).
also please post your experiences with your bank that may be helpful to other users.
I don't know what Kudos benefits are but they are appreciated 😛
