The capital and chief city of the Philippines


What is the fastest way to send money to Philippines from USA?

Rob Frey:

Money Transfer – Send Money Online | Xoom, a PayPal Service

Marcin Goldner-Lubaszewski:

Money Transfer – Send Money Online | WorldRemit

Joanna Magdaleine Tupaz: Have you used this before? I just tried using this and my payment got processed. Then while I’m waiting for the tracking number. I received an email saying my account has been disabled. What should I do?

Marcin Goldner-Lubaszewski: Weird, using it constantly and never had problems. If you open account you should be able to choose money pick up , bank deposit etc. You can send to your self as well… 3$ per transaction and great exchange rate way better than others. Cash can be picked up in bank or hulliers within seconds from transfer.

Joanna Magdaleine Tupaz: Do they immediately send you a tracking number after transaction is processed?

Daniel B Hunt: Joanna Magdaleine Tupaz I had the same thing happen to me the first time I used Xoom. They may just want you to call them and verify your information personally in order to make sure everything is ok. I did this with xoom and all was cleared up over the phone. After the first time I experienced no problems.

Marcin Goldner-Lubaszewski: Yes, tracking number is sent straight away

Jemaimai Carlos: Joanna Magdaleine TupazThey will verify you first ,

De Guzman Maricel: Western

Marc Delvin Coloma: Western Union

Uchiha Mark: Hi

Mark Fox: Road runner…beep beep…

Roni Chavez: Transferwise

Karl Navarra: Use cryptocurrency

Xris Nginx: PayPal

Norlie Landas: Western Union

Serge Marc: Western union

Ania Dorota Daliva: Money Gram or Western Union

Ricci Rich: Westernunion

Shawn Townsend: Fastest or best way ? It all depends on how much. Zoom and a lot are doing conversions at 50/1 so you lose 2 pesos per $1 so if you’re sending $5000 US you would lose 10,000 pesos in conversion. Wire transfer USD is best for conversion rate

Daniel B Hunt: Banks will take more than that just on the rounding down on exchange rates.

Shawn Townsend: Daniel B Hunt no the banks are at 51.79 I just send a large amount over a couple days ago

David Holman: Remitely do a no fee deal on first transfer.

Amren Dugan: Western is expensive..

Shiella-Marco Villanueva: Ff

Allen Wee: Abra

Shawn Townsend: Everyone here pretty much is talking fees but the main concern is conversion rates. If a company is only giving 50/1 and you’re sending $3000 US then you’re actually paying 6000 pesos in money lost

Javy Gimenez: transferwise or cryptocurrency

Shawn Townsend: I have crypto but what filipino platform can you sell it on that is good ?

Javy Gimenez:

Shawn Townsend: I’ve been trying to figure that out because I hold a lot of crypto and think that’s the future in sending money worldwide

Javy Gimenez: i agree

Shawn Townsend: Thanks I’ll look into them 👍

Javy Gimenez: open account…transfer some butcoin to ur wallet address..transfer to ur ph bank..done

Shawn Townsend: I’ll look into it and see what the give per transaction fee and all.

Javy Gimenez: use litecoin if u want low fees..bitcoin will most probably have higher fees

Shawn Townsend:…Remitly and zoom are low to mid 50’s

Mike Papadopoulos: $7.99 up to $6500 instant transfer DO NOT USE WESTERN UNION!!! Worst service ever.

Celine Pustanes Demiao: Western union is the faster one much better if bank to bank transfer and more cheaper too.

Jemaimai Carlos: Western union po

Mike Papadopoulos: Why are so many people recommending Western Union? They are expensive and will make the receiving party jump through hoops to get access to their money.

Jemaimai Carlos: Thats because she is asking the “fastest way” not the cheapest way so when you send your money from abroad through western union the recipient can get it in few minutes and of course the fastest the service you need to pay bigger charges

Mike Papadopoulos: Jemaimai Carlos How is that any different than MoneyGram, Paypal, or Xoom? All of those services take less than 5 minutes to transfer money to the Philippines

Jemaimai Carlos: Mike Papadopoulos It is because WESTERN UNION is not that hassle to deal with just give the money and ID thats it and this small form.Then there u go.Udont need to wait days , the benificiary can get it straight away.Unlike in PAYPAL or XOOM etcetera etcetera you need to give your BANK CARD DETAILS Ior ATM CARD to connect it to PAYPAL, too hassle if it will be your first time. You need to also wait for verification that takes more time.The others ,if it is your first time you need to wait days to be approved first like 1-3 days.FILIPINOS have still the attitude not all but for some are hesitated to use their BANK CARD in anY TRANSACTION ONLINE because of PHISING and SCAM. Thats why in the PHILIPPINES mostly of establishments there are not accepting card. But if you are going to ask me I use online but still a bit nervous

Jemaimai Carlos: Mike PapadopoulosYou can send money to those estab easy But it will take days to be available in the account

Mike Papadopoulos: Jemaimai Carlos With all due respect, I don’t think you know what you are talking about.
