- $5 AUD charges is just awesome for wire transfers.
- MtGox code redeem and withdraw at 0.6% is cool
While $5 is definitely good for wire transfers I'd call the MtGox code redemptions not good at all and damaging to their trade volumes. If they want to compete with MtGox then they should be making deposits / withdrawls like that free. Charging for transfers that cost them nothing (assuming they maintain a balance there) simply causes wider spreads and makes arbitrage / market making activities less attractive.
If they truly want to grow their market and have it compete with MtGox then the slight overhead to process MtGox transfers by maintaining a balance there should be treated as promoting liquidity. Right now it's a bit like a bank charging to make a deposit. Or a brokerage - no brokers that I know of charge a fee to deposit.
Bank fees and wires I understand as it's not up to them. Otherwise they should do every thing they can to make the spread and transferring funds as low as possible. Every deposit is potentially many, many trades where they do get a commission. Every deposit not done due to losing the fee is a loss of further trade volume.
It's the only thing that really stops people from trading there - slippage and fear they won't get a good price.
Having cheap 0.25 Dwolla deposits can be problematic (potential charegbacks) so I understand why they don't offer that but why not cheap Dwolla direct withdrawls? It's one of the main reasons I use MtGox - I can get my money out cheaply. And I don't think there's any reason not to offer that direction. Again, they just have to maintain a Dwolla balance to provide that feature.
