Cheap International Money Transfer

There are several ways to send a money transfer to a foreign country on the cheap. You can go to a particular store, use PayPal, or use apps.

Ways to send money for cheap

Walmart

You can transfer up to $2,500 and spend $18 or less. You can go to a Walmart store, or you can do it from home using your computer. The process is fast and secure.

PayPal

It allows you to send money to friends and family free. The recipient would have to have a PayPal account too.

Venmo App

PayPal provides this service, so the same rules apply. You can use the app on your Android or iPhones.

Square Cash

You use this app on your phone, and the service is free. Plus, you get the money right away. You do not have to have a bank account to use it. You only need the email address of the recipient.

Google Wallet

The service is free. It is an app for use on your phone. You can either use the person’s email address or phone number to send the cash.

Facebook Messenger

You can send money for free by starting a message with a friend. Tap on the icon that looks like a dollar sign ($) and press “pay.”

With the apps, the only thing you have to worry about is security. To get around it, you can set a cap, so you will not lose that much money if someone compromises your account.
