How to use TransferWise and start saving money

Making payments with Transferwise is very easy. I will try to explain how to use TransferWise and also share my suggestions to make transfers cheaper and faster. First, you need to create an account (assuming you are a new user). You can do it on your laptop or a mobile device, they have apps both for iOS and Android. You also have a nice option to sign up with your Google or Facebook account. The signup form is soo minimalistic that it will take you less than a minute to create an account.
