Hello, We withdrew US$7000 from an Envato account to a British Bank using SWIFT method. The amount we received is 4311.72 GBP which is equal to US$ 6553. So if we assume Envato + local bank charges 100$, even then there is difference of US$ 350 at least.

Why there is so huge difference? I have confirmed from my bank and they said they do not charge anything. So I am just wondering if anyone else also has such experience?

Check if the money got exchanged with a bad exchange rate USD->GBP and check how many times (lol, yes) Is your bank account under USD or GBP? I would suggest having an account in USD, makes these things much more clearer and you can exchange the money on your own using an online exchange broker where you get much better exchange rate.

Hi,
This is not normal. I think you need to contact your bank and ask for details on that particular transaction and every commissions/expanses related to it. Maybe some fees were applied on the same day, or maybe the was some sort of tax applied (which is unlikely). Also there’s possibility that currency conversion rate in your bank is not what you’ve expected.

If I were you I would call the bank immediately and ask about the transaction. Most of the times they would be willing to tell you in detailed about what fee were you charged and what was the exchange rates at that moment of transaction. If their calculations doesn’t make you feel good then you can write a ticket to Envato Support.

@crossroad, do you have another account? Lately there are too many members speak here with different account than author account. Everyone here have 2nd account just to speak on forums? :D

On topic, Enavto’s fee is $35 and intermediary or local bank may take around $25 but not more than that.

I’m guessing it’s the case of developers / designers working with other authors on other accounts. Maybe they do not have access to the main account so they have double accounts..
