I’ve just received my previous month money and the missing money is not just $35 but around $60. Anyone else confirm?

Envato fee is 35$, probably your bank took some $ also for that transfer.

NONO, Envato does not charge a bit except for the 30-50% rates. Envato only tells you that banks take $35, but they don’t, banks take more.

NONO, they charge it, if you’re using SWIFT
Please note that a $35.00 transaction fee is charged on all International Transfers (SWIFT).

Envato cannot be held responsible for delays, extra costs or financial loss that arises from being provided incorrect account information, so please ensure that you double check the details with your financial institution prior to submitting a request for a SWIFT Wire Transfer.

They used to pay for that long time ago, but then they change it and now 35$ is deducted from your withdrawal. This is for covering Envato cost of transferring money. But the money can sometimes go via indirect transfers, so the cost will be higher. Call you bank and ask about it.

Yes, my bank also takes additional $25. Not only for Envato transactions but for any wire transfer.

For high payment amounts I would very much recommend the Payoneer Global Bank Transfer Service. This allows for direct bank transfers to your account, supporting over 200 countries and 50 currencies, starting at only $2.99 per payment.

Another time, transfer the money with Payoneer directly to your bank account. That will be cost about $3-10. In some countries if you transfer the money in USD currency, you have +1% (up to $10) :)

Contact nissimal@payoneer.com for more informations.

Nope, Envato takes $35 surcharge, but the intermediary banks and your bank also takes money. This is how it always had been. I usually pay around $60-90 per each transaction from Envato.

this fee was added some time ago and the reason was to cover time spent in sending the money with this method.

there is a thread made by the staff with details about this change but I can’t find it

Is there a way to stop being trashed by banks and avoid paying increasing transfer fees except Bitcoin?

I am curious if Envato is interested in sustaining itself on supporting the authors in this important matter.
