Title: Navy Federal Credit Union
Post by: clarkee on February 07, 2019, 01:43:03 PM
Does anyone on the forum deal with NFCU on wiring or choosing pick up in person money in the Philippines. I've heard they will bank to bank money for $25.00 a transaction or they use Western Union for bank to bank or cash pick up for $14.50. What are the procedures for doing this.

Clarkee,

Not sure if you seen my reply but, you can set up an account online with WU and add your bank account information and do the transfer online for $3.99...that beats $14.50 & $25.00!

Hey Clarkee, you can also do bank transfers, and also direct-to-person international transfers for $3.99 with www.worldremit.com (http://www.worldremit.com) from anywhere. We've used them for a few years now. They're fast and reliable, with competitive exchange rates and a well sorted and easy-to-use website. Whatever, no worries.

Hi Hank,

I went and set up an account but it looks like you can only use a bank account transfer to Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Somaliland, UK, South Africa & Rwanda? The rest of the remaining countries have various methods of payment. My preference is transfer by bank account and I don't see Philippines on that list? Correct me if I'm wrong, 8)

G'day MotorSarge and Steve & Myrlita .. thanks for this info, and many apologies for the bum steer regarding WorldRemit and bank transfers to the Philippines. We have used them for several years for their cash transfer service, direct to the person at all the LaHullier outlets across the Phils without any problems. We now know that they have also started doing bank transfers, but we were unaware that they don't do this to the Phils as yet. Thanks for this update gents.  :)
