Send Money Online from the US to the Philippines with Paysend
There are over 10 million Filipinos working abroad and over 2 million of them reside in the US. These immigrants play a vital role in their adopted countries, as well as their home country, as this group often sends money to loved ones still living in the Philippines. To ensure friends and family receive the most money possible and with the least hassle, Filipino expats need a reliable and simple money transfer service that puts customers and their families at the heart of everything.
How can I send money online to the Philippines from the US?
You have a few different options when it comes to sending money to the Philippines from the US. You can transfer money with the help of a cashier by going to physical bank locations or remittance outlets, or you can use online transfer services. Before choosing which method is best for you and your recipient, you’ll want to consider the benefits of each.
For instance, going “in-store” to send your money can be convenient if you need guidance with your money transfers, but you may have to pay more for these services, meaning that less money will be received in the Philippines. If you want to avoid lines and send money from the comfort of your home, then online and in-app money transfers may be for you.
