Things To Consider Before Transmitting Funds Internationally

Personal_Finance / Financial Education Feb 13, 2022 - 05:06 PM GMT

Transmitting money internationally comes with its fair share of restrictions especially if you reside outside the United States. Banks across the globe require proof of fund source while trying to make large transfers. This is increasingly becoming a reality even for small transfers. If you are planning on transferring funds internationally, then you have arrived at the right destination. Today we are going to share some tips which are going to ease out your fund transfer across geographical boundaries:

  • The foreign exchange market fluctuates wildly even in the shortest period. Thus, it becomes essential to get the best exchange rate for your money transfer. You can enjoy significant savings by bagging a favorable exchange rate. Better rates can be availed from currency specialists compared to banks making it advisable to scan around for the best deal before deciding on one.
  • Another factor that contributes to the cost of sending money internationally is the corresponding fee and charge. These fees are charged by both currency specialists and banks. Same-day transfers are usually costlier than the standard non-urgent ones. You can determine the transfer speed depending upon your requirement.
  • While sending money internationally, you need to possess knowledge regarding when the money is going to arrive. If you avail of the services of a currency specialist, then you can determine the speed at which the funds are released depending on the method chosen. This will impact the speed at which the funds enter your beneficiary account. Payment is going to be released the following day if the currency specialist or bank receives your funds post the cut-off time. Usually, the timelines and fees of different transfer methods are explained by the currency specialists and banks.
  • People are increasingly opting for currency specialists in the place of banks while transferring money overseas. However, you need to check the reputation of the currency specialist for determining whether they have the authority for carrying out international money transfers. Authorized firms guarantee a higher level of protection and can keep the client’s money properly safeguarded.
  • Given the increasing work pressure, we can hardly afford the time to spend standing behind long queues at banks. In such a scenario, it is imperative to opt for fund remitting companies which offer customers an online platform to proceed with the same. Users will be required to provide documentation like photo ID, identity, and address proof for compliance reasons. After setting up the online account, users can engage in global transfers round the clock without leaving the comfort of their house. The online platforms also store beneficiary details for fast remittance with a single click of a button.


Portals like PayPal offer a trusted method for sending money overseas in a fast and secure manner. However, funds can be transferred internationally only to another PayPal account. This process involves a large fee which reduces the ultimate transfer amount. For solving this problem, PayPal has introduced Xoom allowing international money transfer to a bank account. Users often have concerns regarding how to transfer money from paypal to payoneer. In such cases, a PayPal account has to be linked with Payoneer following which the funds are transferred by default at 12:00 UTC.
