TransferWise is a financial technology company that was founded in 2010 in London, UK, by Estonian entrepreneurs Taavet Hinrikus and Kristo Käärmann. The company provides a peer-to-peer money transfer service that allows users to send and receive money across borders at a low cost.

TransferWise uses APIs to integrate with banks and other financial institutions, enabling it to process transactions and provide users with real-time exchange rates. The company offers a range of APIs, including payment initiation APIs, which allow developers to initiate payments on behalf of a user using TransferWise’s payment infrastructure.

TransferWise also offers APIs for account verification, which allow developers to verify a user’s identity and bank account information, as well as APIs for currency conversion, which enable developers to access TransferWise’s real-time exchange rate data.

TransferWise’s API performance is generally regarded as excellent, with fast response times and reliable uptime. The company has invested heavily in its infrastructure and has built redundancy and failover capabilities into its systems to minimize the risk of downtime.

TransferWise has been highly supportive of developers, providing a range of tools and resources to help them build applications that integrate with its platform. The company offers detailed documentation, sample code, and a developer portal where developers can access support and connect with other developers working on similar projects.

In terms of downtime, TransferWise has experienced a few notable outages over the years. In January 2021, the company experienced an outage that affected many of its services, including its API platform. The outage lasted for several hours and caused disruption for TransferWise’s customers and partners.

Despite this outage, TransferWise has generally been reliable and stable, with few significant downtime incidents. The company has a strong commitment to maintaining the availability and reliability of its APIs and other services, and it has demonstrated a willingness to invest in its infrastructure to ensure that its platform remains performant and scalable.
