Money transfer generally refers to the movement of cash from one individual to another through electronic funds transfer. A wire transfer can be made from one bank account to another bank account or through a transfer of cash at a cash office. Wire transfer systems are intended to provide more individualized transactions than bulk payment systems. Operators provide different wire transfer systems relative to the immediacy and finality of settlement and the cost, value and volume of transactions.
