How to send money to India

With a population of over 1.3 billion people, India is a thriving hub with a diverse workforce powering the global economy. Around 20 million Indians work abroad around the world, and money sent home is an important resource for many Indian families. Indian expats need fast, secure and cheap global money transfer services to make sure their loved ones receive as much money as possible.

 

How can I send money to India?

 

There are many ways to make a money transfer to India, and services come at various speeds and prices. High street banks and remittance outlets are convenient for some, but can be expensive, meaning that less money is received in India when the transfer is made. On top of this, you will probably have to queue up in store, which will slow the whole process down. Online and in-app money transfers to India are faster and more convenient for both the sender and the recipient.
