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:
- 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 )
- If you are using your Bank Account, be sure to have your Transit Number, Branch Number and Account Number on hand.
- 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.
