Definition of wire transfer

Wire Transfer Image 1

wire transfer

An electronic transmission of money from one place to another. For example, you might request that your bank transfer money from your bank account in Vancouver to the account of a relative in Quebec City. To do this, you would provide the relative’s name and account number, as well as the address of the bank in Quebec City. Your bank would then "wire" the funds, which would usually arrive within a couple of days.
