Question: I want to transfer some amount (1000$) from my freelancer.com account to my bank in Pakistan. The site charges $25 for a wire transfer but then is the amount sent as is to your bank account or does it also involve any intermediary bank?
 
Answer: I have personally experienced two types of transactions. The last transaction (before recent one) I made was fully sent to me without any deduction except $25 of freelancer.com fee. 
 
However, I recently transfered $865 to Pakistan, Freelancer took $25 but I only received $795 (instead of $840 = $865-$25). So, the intermediary bank charged $45.
