Wells Fargo is one of the economical options to send money to the Philippines. All of the hidden currency conversion costs are based on our calculations and may vary.
My experience when checking these costs is that most companies calculate a fixed percentage that they add to the cost and that this percentage does not vary much. The lowest cost option for Payoneer would be to use their transfer to bank option. If you transfer the money to Payoneer via credit card the costs will be higher. Also Payoneer generally does not accept businesses that have less than 10 employees. So to get business access to Payoneer you need to have a larger business with many employees.
Or alternatively you can try and send money directly via their website using a credit card; but in this case the costs will be higher and they limit the sending amounts. Xoom has been reported to cancel any payments that are for the purpose of sending to employees. Adding funds for Abra is free if you do it by bank.

I've been using paypal and bank to bank transfer for so many years. I've never tried any other way, some way are promising but I need reliability. I have tried paypal, transferwise and payoneer. The best is transferwise so far and it goes to my account directly. No more withdrawal charges. UpVote Reply 4 Upvotes. After using Remitly mostly for smaller transactions for the past few years I needed to make larger transfers. The first one I made was not pleasant as I had to call them several times to complete it.
I had to provide a copy of my passport, SS number, and other details. I assumed that future transactions would be a breeze but I was wrong.
The representative I spoke with Precious was rude and she made me feel unimportant and that my business was of no value to her. I've lost all confidence in Remitly and I'll no longer use or recommend them to anyone. Though not as fast as Remitly they do process the transfers in one business day and their rates are generally lower.

If you use PNB wire transfer you use at your own risk. On December 2 thousands were transferred and I have not received funds. All PNB will do is say they do not have funds.
They will not trace I used my lawyer in the Dtates and got all the wire transfer information. Yet for 11 years they have handled the transaction monthly. I have now hired a lawyer in Davao Ph. I doubt I will get justice in a Ph. I am tied up with Payoneer with my business and so far they are far better and more inexpensive compared to PayPal.
They even have some arrangements like my being with their VIP customers that allows you lower fees especially if you'll be sending big amounts like payments, remittances, and the likes. You can do the transaction online and clients sending out money need not even register.
Just follow the online process and you'll be sent an email message if you have receivables. Your account number with them is already registered as an international account and you can transact globally.
Don't get me wrong. Am not part of the company. Just happy to share my experiences with their service and so far, it's topnotch! I even have a personal account executive assigned to me who checks me out every now and then for any concerns or clarifications with regards to their service. I hope that helps!

PayPal is almost 20 years old, and it is not hiding anything. One must know the rules in any transactions. Charges apply to any kind of business, even the free ones. PayPal has an established reputation. There are many other worldwide online payments system to choose from and each has their own rule and price. Change the part of the article that says hidden fees, it is not hidden. Also, clarify the charges for it is not clear.
Separate the Personal and Business account. Then a clear comparison can be seen. I find some of this information 'misleading' at best. Western Union offers 2 services: I wonder if this is a 'sales site' for other services that charge MORE to transfer money? For example here are the exchange rates last July 24, for sending money with delivery method: Hi there, I am marketing team member of mHITs Remit and I just would like to clarify some information about this post and how you collect it so we can help keep it accurate.

It is very easy to open a wallet account and there is also API integration. This also take just minutes and direct to whoever the payment is intended for. It takes 10 minutes to pay them, then stuck at "Processing by local partner" for two full days. Terrible considering the huge hidden cost the inflict with a high exchange rate gap.
Before sending money to Philippines , one should compare and choose option which is offering best rate on the day of transaction. Hi all, does anybody have any idea which services from the U. I want western union because i know my money is secured at this money transfer at easy to claim. I prefer xxom and western union, we need to have our pay in fastest time though than paypal we need to wait business days and not only the sender will be charge also the receiver they highly expensive than other money remittance.
As far as I know its either western union or xoom its because its fastest way to send money here in the Philippines. For me it is Western Union always has the best and the greatest ways of sending money to the philippines from the states, for me it wasnt about how much will be the charges.

Hey Rob I think Payoneer and Pay Maya is the best and low cost if you want to transfer money here in the philippines. It just takes 10 minutes to get the money. Thank you for asking me this actually I personally had experience in having to send money before when I work outside the country and most of the time the company I worked at was using wire transfers to certain banks and other would use western Union and Money gram.
Thank you so much for sharing this great article. The information of best Money Converter that you given is good. I would recommended to add CurrencyKart. Thank you team currency karthttps: With some of my companies, they make me open an account from a platform they choose. I plan to open payoneer next. I plan to open a Payoneer account.

I pay 20 UAE Dirhams as transfer fee and the exchange rate is good. Thank you so much for sharing such an extensive list of money transfer companies.
I would like to add one more money transfer company which is Remit2India [ https: John had an interesting list of money transfer operators on top of which very interesting solutions like Wordlremit, small world should be added.
The best way to always reach the best solution matching your requirements is to use a trustfull money transfer comparator like Moneytis. In addition, a study by productivity firm TimeDoctor cites remittance delays of three to five days as among the big concerns that recipients face, not to mention the hidden forex costs. I use Transferwise weekly for sending money to the Philippines they are excellent there is nothing else to compare for international money transfers.
PayPal is a joke. Xoom is a joke. Ria is a joke. I've burned a lot of bridges in this industry but these companies will take all your personal information and then ask for more, and then decline service for some absurd technicality. I use PayPal only to receive funds never to send out internationally as that will freeze the account. I used to use RemitHome and they had good service but they just can't compete with Transferwise on price.
Transferwise is the best!! Uses the market rate and very very low fees. You can even set a minimum limit. To get your first transfer fee-free use: The best way to transfer money from USA to Philippines is via www.
And I can get my money within 5 minutes. I use Remitly to send my wife money weekly from the USA and she can pick it up in Philippine pesos within minutes. I don't understand why it takes this long. Remitly does make a little bit on each dollar exchanged.
To transfer money overseas and not pay loanshark fees, there's transferwise. Transferwise is a revolutionary way to transfer money across countries with non-blood sucking bank fees.
It's funded by the co-founder of Paypal and even Sir Richard Branson. There's no percentage commission but a small fee of euros per transfer. Hi Rob, Western Union or Money Gram would be better since we can get our salary faster and will not wait for 21 days.
Paypal takes time and we are working hard so we can get paid and pay our bills but paypal is giving us headache. The problem with WU is that they have the worst IT department of any financial-transactions company I have ever seen. If something goes wrong, as it often does, they are clueless most of the time and their agents have no way of accessing the cause. Hope you could include a review of http: I prefer to send money through bank to bank.
I will never use Paypal services again. I just started getting in this business of mine from where you need a mode of payment. It happened to be paypal. They have this horrifying policy that you need to wait for 21 days to get the money. I am working because I have urgent payments that I need to. It's annoying the blood-earned money you get will be stuck on hold in a company.
I don't even know why they do that but obviously they're doing it for their own good. If you want to check out the rest of the post, here are the links: Filipinos I use paypal or xoom for transfer. And now xoom is merged and owned by paypal. If you want to check out the other posts, here are the links: For my Filipino friends I will suggest that I used paypal and transferwise.
If you don't have option for paypal or venemo or other such apps try my referral: I am not promoting company or work for them, but is a good offer to try.
I guess moneygram is the best money transfers to send money here in the philippines. All the money transferred are reliable, but nothing beats Money Gram. It might be a little expensive for some but its the most efficient way specially if you're recipient here in the Philippines needs the money right away I would also want to commend the wire transfer because its soo secured, bank will even help you in case problem arise during the process.
This is really helpful. And yes, PayPal is very expensive. What I really don't like about PayPal is their exchange rate. We really lose a lot there. So when I was freelancing, bank transfer to my bank account works best than being paid via PayPal.
For my personal clients, outside freelancing websites, I usually use PayPal because they say that it's the most convenient way for them. I might try the other ones here and let my client know. I have opened an account here in saudi arabia, my bank is Philippine National Bank.
I saw in my bank's website that there is a way for me to send money from my savings to my family in the Philippines through XOOM. I find it was the easiest and fastest money transfer. I think that Routing Number is the issue due to i mailed my bank on what is their Routing number then they gave me 3 routing numbers 1 is new york 2nd is los angeles and 3rd the BIC.
When sending money from Hong Kong to Philippines, my cheapest experience was money changers like Czarina or Frankies Remittance specially when you send big amount. I tried sending money to my BPI account last month here in HK and I haggled for them to increase the exchange rate and make the remittance charge free, and to my surprise they did.
I jumped to the other money changer and they also did the same. The running exchange rate that day was somewhere around 6. I don't think anyone can beat that. No wonder a very long line of domestic helpers line up during pay day there. Only hassle is that you have to go to there personally no online or phone call transaction. Banks usually charge more, but they are trustworthy.
Such a very good information. Thanks for posting this blog article. I'll shamelessly leave my reference link just in case https: The fastest and the cheapest way of sending money to the Philippines is through Bitcoin. Bitcoin conversion rate is too volatile.
For now, I don't think this is good for the recipient. Hi Rob,Thanks for the info. Surely many Filipinos freelancer will find it very helpful. Hi Rob, I was surprised to receive an email from you.
