Top 3 Ways to Send Money Abroad Quickly Online!
Top Pick: PAYSEND
PaySend is a Godsend. This company emerged in 2017 and has literally scooped up the market for sending money internationally to your family and loved ones. They operate in over 90 countries so there is a good chance it’s available to you (you can send from 49 countries and receive in 90 countries as of this writing, you can check supported countries here). Did we mention PaySend is also the fastest and cheapest way to send money abroad? Oftentimes sending is free because they regularly send promo codes via email for free money transfers. Otherwise it’s just 2 to 3 dollars for Card to Card transfers.
How it Works:
- Step 1: Register on the PaySend website
- Step 2: Setup your first transfer by clicking New Transfer and filling out the details
- Step 3: Use this bonus promo code for your FREE first money transfer: 00944w
- Step 4: Download the PaySend app for Android or Apple.
That’s it! It’s super easy and convenient to send money from Bank Card to Bank Card. The transfer usually takes under a minute and you can do it all from your mobile device. It’s unbelievable but true. We tested this to send money from Canada to Russia and it really does arrive on the Bank Card within 60 seconds. Exchange rate is excellent too, we’re literally astounded. You can also transfer money from your Bank Card to the recipients Bank Account number, and that too is really fast always in less than 1 business day (*can take longer for some countries).
Runner Up 2nd place: XE Money Transfers
XE transfer is another excellent option for sending money overseas to a recipient’s bank account, unfortunately they don’t offer Card to Card transfers like PaySend does, only to bank accounts. Very low fees and competitive exchange rates as well, usually takes 1 business day to receive the money, but can take longer in some countries as well. If you’ve been online long enough you’ll know XE has been around for over 20 years as a currency exchange service, so they’re not a fly by night operation, they’re here to stay.
Last but not least 3rd place: WESTERN UNION
Good old reliable Western Union now too offers online international money transfers for free or very low fees depending on the amount sent, from Debit/Credit Card to Bank Account, or from Debit/Credit Card to Mobile Phone (where available), or even Cash pickup at one of their many locations. It takes usually a day to receive the money to Bank Account, or almost immediately for Cash Pickup in person. It’s a good reliable option if for some reason you can’t use PaySend, which is the recommended way to transfer money online overseas.
