Send money quickly and easily with these simple steps:

  • Find your local Money Services with our helpful store locator.

  • Stop by and give the store associate the receiver’s name, their location, and the amount you want to send so the associate can set up the transfer.

  • Choose ‘Cash Pick-up’.

  • Select your transfer option.

  • Give the fee* and amount to be sent to the store associate either as cash or using a bank-issued debit card from the US.

  • Tell the receiver the 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) and remind them to bring their photo ID so they can collect the cash.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15.  Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
