Why isn't 'Would you like to transfer the money' correct?

I suppose 'would you like' is a bit more polite, and since German has the same dinstinction, it makes sense to say 'willst du' = 'do you want' and 'möchtest du' = 'would you like'

Surely it can be translated as "do they want to transfer the money"

The slow version doesn't work, at least for the male voice. (Dec 10 2017)

The female voice doesn't say 'wollen' clearly enough

I said, "Do you want the money to transfer?" But I guess this sounds more contingent on something. Now I wanna know how this would be slyly conveyed in german. My attempt is, "Wollen Sie, dass das Geld überweisen wird?"
