In this article, we will talk about the points that you should consider when making the fastest and easiest international money transfer to the Philippines and how you can transfer money.

Points to be Considered

There are many methods to send money to the Philippines, but you need to consider transfer fees, exchange rates, taxes, and transfer speeds before choosing a method. Money transfer fees, exchange rates and taxes affect how much it costs you to make transfer and how much money to be received by the recipient in the Philippines. Transfer speeds are also important. Your recipient may need money urgently. In this case, you should execute the fastest money transfer process.

Bank Transfer

Bank transfer may be the method that comes to your mind first to send money to the Philippines. However, there are two problems related to this transfer method. First, according to the Worldwide Bank Transfer Expenses report published by the World Bank, we can say that bank transfer is one of the most expensive methods to send money internationally. Banks charge 10.99 % on average over the amount of transfer to the Philippines, which is well above the global average cost for sending money. The second problem related to bank transfers is that fewer number of people have a bank account in the Philippines. It is quite possible that the recipient to whom you want to send money does not have a bank account. Besides, you, as sender, may often be required to have a bank account.

Cash Transfer

You can also send money to the Philippines through intermediary companies that handle Cash Transfers. To send money with this method, you need to search for the most affordable price, the most suitable exchange rate and the safest and fastest institution, and visit the nearest service point to make your transaction. Although this method is cheaper than bank transfer, you have to make search in advance. Also, you have to obtain guarantee that the cash amount transferred by you will be paid at the nearest service point in the Philippines. In the Philippines, not every service point will be able to pay all amounts of money, and the recipient may experience delays or other difficulties in receiving the money.

Mobile Wallet

Mobile wallets save time thanks to their simple interfaces and easy-to-use steps, and the only difference is an application that you download in your phone.
