How to send money from India to Philippines?

Discussion in 'Payment Processing' started by sachin410, Apr 23, 2010.

    I need to send about $100 to a friend in Philippines.

    He doesn't have a Paypal account.
    SEMrush
    What is the best way to send this amount?

    Due to regulations, Western Union, Moneygram etc cannot be used to send money out of India.

    Xoom is asking for a US credit card or debit card and won't accept a Paypal payment.

    What other alternatives do I have?

    I can send a bank draft, but that will take a long time.

    I think Bank wire transfer will be the best way in this case.

    Yes Bank wire transfer is one of the good options.

    Moneybooker is also good.

    Send it through Xoom and pay through your CC.

    Can't the friend simply get a PayPal account ? An unverified account in Phillipines would solve the problem, won't it? is it not simpler to send via PayPal?

    Well , I would like to be honest,
    when i saw your post that your friends need 100$ .. And he is specially from philippines . I would rather not send.

    I hope he knows you very well ... As for me... i got Pm through chats ( from philippine country ) that they want money and they will return..

    SO , be carefull ;) .. The above all was my POINT OF VIEW .

    No harm feelinsg through ;)

    It is tough to send money from India via Western Union. The best choice would be wire transfer. Contact your bank and do the needful.

    What if my friend creates a paypal account?

    How long will it take for him to be able to withdraw the funds that I send?

    I think it's about time for your friend to open a PayPal account. It should take him about 5 minutes to open one and about 3 days to verify it with his credit /debit card.

    and it's possible to withdraw money even from an unverified account. Just instruct him/her to be extra careful while entering name and country of residence while opening account and to keep name same as the bank account where he/she will be withdrawing it to !!

    You can try Moneybookers it is a good option. Or you can try Bank Wire, it is also a good one.

    If you send via paypal then it would take around 4-5 days to withdraw the funds

    i think you should go via paypal or bank transfer. Or get some friend of yours in another country to transfer via western union and pay to him.
