Everyone wins, except expensive solutions

With our model, the only losers are the expensive banks or providers you’ll stop using!

To ensure our independence, we always use transparent, objective and verifiable criteria in our comparison. No provider can buy their way to the top of our results.

We include as many providers as possible in our comparison and have partnerships with almost all major and innovative providers.

We make sure you never pay more than if you went directly to the provider of your choice. We even negotiate special offers for you with many of our partners.

  • You save money on your transfer by selecting the cheapest provider.

  • The best providers earn new customers without expensive marketing, helping keep their costs (and prices) low.

  • Monito receives a referral fee from the provider you selected. This enables us to offer our service to you for free.

Affiliate Disclosure
Instead of banner ads and paywalls, Monito makes money through affiliate links to the various payment service providers featured on our website. While we work hard to scout the market for the best deals, we're unable to consider every possible product available to you. Our extensive range of trusted affiliate partners enables us to make detailed, unbiased, and solution-driven recommendations for all types of consumer questions and problems. This allows us to match our users with the right providers to suit their needs and, in doing so, match our providers with new customers, creating a win-win for everybody involved. However, while some links on Monito may indeed earn us a commission, this fact never impacts the independence and integrity of our opinions, recommendations, and evaluations.
