Money transfer to Philippines

    Hello all,

    About 3 years ago I transferred money a few times to the Philippines via a company in London. I'm pretty certain it was a filipino owned company.
    I would phone and give them the info, and the deal would be done, no problem.

    I don't have their details now, so I am asking if anyone might be able to help please?

    My best,

    Martin.

    Don't know that one but I use xoom it's part of PayPal user friendly and the recipient does not need a bank account.

    I use it via paypal but I don't think you need a PayPal account to use it to send money

    Interesting, many of us here used to use Xoom in the old days (pre 2010) until they decided they didn't need any customers outside the USA and made it impossible for us to send via their service anymore.

    I hadn't been aware that PayPal bought them in 2015.

    Just checked against my preferred service WorldRemit and Xoom is 31 pence cheaper for a £100 pound transfer and about 60p cheaper for £1000 transfer, not bad I used to have a lot of trust in Xoom.

    I have used Transferwise to send from UK to Fils. Good rate and only £2.50 charges. Guess that would be more for larger amounts.
