Truly it may be horrible sometimes when you don’t know the process and how to trace the funds in case of missing funds or not receiving the funds in your expected time duration. So you should know that if you are going to withdraw the money from US companies, how about the following,
1. Cheque Fee : You must know before sending an invoice or request for the money transfer to your local bank account, there are most of the companies charge a cheque fee that may be different in cost but you have to pay.
2. Wire Transfer fee : You also should be aware that most of the websites, companies and individual bank account charge up to $25 wire transfer fee to send the money outside USA.
3. Duration : This is the most important part of wire transfer that you should know how many days a transaction may take because the sender company or website takes up to 4, 5 days in completing the initiating process of the funds and transfer to your local bank but there are certain reasons the funds may be deposited in your account beyond the expected time.
For example, when you withdraw the funds from a US based company through the bank wire, it may take up to 15 working days but sometimes it takes more than 3 weeks. So all you have to do is, if the time exceeds the duration of 15 days, talk to your local bank help desk to check the transaction.

Once the funds are deposited to your bank account, don’t forget to check the current dollar rate for your local currency so that you know the exact amount that is transferred after converting in your local currency.
