Looking for alternatives to transferwise

I have some business associates who need to move money from one country to another legitimately by the cheapest reliable way possible. They asked for my help, so I decided to take a look at TransferWise. The rates seem good - much better than any bank I've dealt with. I understand they need to verify your identity, so if that means supplying a copy of your passport/driving licence, so be it. If they require the new account holder to post a selfie with that ID, that's also fine with me and my associates.

The main problem with trying to set up an account with TransferWise is that they insist you send a payment to your new account before they reveal the account's bank details. In other words, you can't give someone else your payment instructions until you have made a payment to the account first. Payments can be made by credit/debit card or bank transfer from a list of approved banks in certain countries (presumably those account details are revealed at the last moment if you disclose the appropriate bank account details to TransferWise first).

Unfortunately, TransferWise only accepts those initial payments from a very small group of countries, although after that payments can come from almost anywhere. I don't live in one of the approved countries, and neither do my associates.

I've tried to open account with a couple of competitors, such as XE Transfer, and run into the same obstacle. Does anyone know of a similar service provider that doesn't make life so difficult? That company must allow transfers to and from the UK, Europe, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You state the money is clean but i don't believe thats the case. If you need money Laundered, i know a guy who will do it for a 20-25% fee. If you just want it moved, it's 10-15%.

DM me if interested.

You believe wrong. The money is clean and the people concerned have no objection to verification. Even if the money was dirty, do you really think I'm going to take the word of a complete stranger on the internet that they "know a guy" who can launder the money?

Thanks for the recommendation TedyBear. I'm going to see if they have the same obstacle as TransferWise and I'll report back once I've found out.

Very big difference between asking if anyone knows of a reputable international money transferring company and asking if anyone has contacts who can shift some money.

Revolut is only available to people who are based in certain European countries.

Get help from a (very patient) native English speaker, as it is clear even the most basic sentences are beyond your comprehension.

Thanks, but the problem isn't a limit on the amount that can be transferred. The problem is the procedures for opening the account and the restrictions on locations for doing this.
