Remitly – One way to remit your money to the Philippines

My nephews are celebrating their birthday’s in a few weeks and when I was talking to one of them I asked them what he wants for his birthday, he want’s a chocolate cake with Mickey Mouse on it. So me, I was thinking of ways to make it happen so I thought of sending money and ask their mom and dad to order the cake.

Usually, I go to a remittance center and do the transaction there but good thing I found REMITLY, it’s an online platform that’s let’s me send money via ONLINE, it saves me time and money ( time because I don’t need to go out esp. during the cold weather and money because I don’t need to pay for bus fare ).

I do everything at the comfort of my home, it’s so easy to use it and the transaction fee is one of the lowest I know. The downside I think would be the countries they currently support, but honestly for me I don’t mind since I just remit money to the Philippines.

What you need to be able to send money are the following:

  1. Your Bank Details: You can use your Bank Account, Debit Card or Credit Card ( additional fee applies since I think this is considered Cash Advance )
  2. If you are using your Bank Account, be sure to have your Transit Number, Branch Number and Account Number on hand.
  3. Your recipients bank information, address and phone number

How long, well for Bank to Bank it takes quite awhile it takes 3-4 business days, but this has the cheapest transaction fee.

If you are in a hurry, you can opt for Cash PickUP or use your Debit Card or Credit Card but the transaction fee is much higher.

So if you want to try just click >  Remitly

 

Note: Using Remitly is my own personal choice and they are not paying me to advertise this one.
