Family Tree DNA are now accepting transfers from AncestryDNA v2 kits (all tests processed after mid May 2016) and 23andMe v4 kits (all tests taken from about November 2013 onwards). As before, the transfer is free but you have to pay a small fee to unlock the rest of the FTDNA features. The good news is that the fee has now been reduced from $39 to just $19.
There are many advantages to being in different databases because each company has its own unique database and only a subset of people have tested across all three companies. You will therefore pick up matches at FTDNA that won't be found in the other databases.
At Family Tree DNA you can benefit from additional features such as the chromosome browser, which provides a visual representation of the segments of DNA that you share with your genetic cousins. This is a great way of understanding the inheritance process, especially if you are also able to test lots of other family members.
FTDNA offer Y-DNA and mitochondrial DNA tests which means that you can combine the results of all three tests when interpreting your results.
FTDNA also have the advantage of a much more international database than AncestryDNA and 23andMe. They host a wide range of geographical DNA projects. If you have recent ancestry from Devon I would very much like to welcome you to my Devon DNA Project. .

I have received the following e-mail from Family Tree DNA with additional information about the autosomal DNA transfer process.
