We’re excited to let you know about some improvements we’ve made to our international wires. You can now send international wires to 100+ new countries, with greater speed (1-3 days), and without any minimums.
We’ve also made international wires free to send for Mercury Tea Room users (they previously cost $20).
When we launched Mercury, we focused on building a simple UI to make sending international wires easy. But the underlying rails for international wires are unstandardized and arcane, and we quickly realized true ease of use would require greater investment in underlying infrastructure.
After a few months of work, we’ve added new partners and made a few upgrades:
Thanks to Colin and the Three J’s (Jackie, Jake, and Jonathan) for bringing these improvements to life.
