How does an international transfer with Remitly work?
remitly offer several different options for their international transfers. Not all options are available in all destination countries, though, so you’ll need to check out what’s available in the destination country.
Send funds from your bank account, directly to your recipient’s account. This option is available in most countries served by Remitly, and comes with either express or economy options, which have different fees and delivery times. To arrange an international transfer with Remitly, you’ll need to model the payment on the website, and check that you think the exchange rate and service fee are fair. More on how to compare these, in a little while¹.
In some countries, it’s possible to arrange for your recipient to collect their money in cash from an agent location near to them. This is convenient if they don’t have easy access to a bank account – but can cost more in fees, depending on where you’re sending the money to¹.
Home delivery of the payment is also available in some countries – so the payment you send will be couriered right to your recipient’s door and handed over in cash in the local currency. As you may imagine, there are fees to pay if you’re considering this option¹.
In a few countries, you also have the option of sending money to a mobile wallet – model your transfer online to see if this is available in the country you’re sending money to¹.
