How to send money to someone with a debit card

Debit cards are the perfect way to make sure that you don’t spend money you don’t have, which many people do when they have a credit card!

When you use a debit card to make purchases for goods and services, you’re limited to spend however much you’ve got in your account. This is why it’s wise for people who are prone to impulse buying should consider switching from a credit to a debit card!

 

How to send money to someone with a debit card

 

It’s really easy to send money to someone with a debit card, because it’s usually linked to a bank account which it takes money from to pay for things online and in-store.

To make a transfer to someone with a debit card via their bank, you’ll need their bank details. When you’ve got these, you can choose whether to send the money using an online or offline method of transfer.

If you choose an offline method, you’ll need to go to a bank, post office or remittance store to send your money. You’ll need to pay the cashier, and fill in a form with your recipient’s bank details. They will then send your money for a fee, and it should arrive in your recipient’s bank account within a few days.Your recipient can then use the funds with their debit card linked to the bank account.
