Sending online remittance to Philippines has never been easier – after all, it just takes a few clicks.
We’re going to show you how to send money abroad using OrbitRemit, so that it reaches its destination quickly and hassle-free.
How to Send Online Remittance to the Philippines
The first thing you’ll need to do, if you haven’t already, is sign up to OrbitRemit. Click on the button on the top right hand side of the screen that says “get started” to do this. This will cause a form to appear – this just requires some simple details, like your name, email, postal address, and password. Just follow the instructions to get signed up.
Use our calculator in the top right hand corner of the page to work out exactly how much will arrive at its destination. Put in the type and amount of currency you have, then select “Philippines Peso” (PHP).
Once you know what you’re getting, you’ll have to set up the transfer with our online system. Just tell us the recipient’s name, bank account number, and any other indentifying details we ask for. Then we’ll tell you what information you’ll need to give to your bank. We’ll also tell you exactly what fees you have to pay, and exactly how much will end up at the receiving end.
Now you’ll have to transfer the money into OrbitRemit’s domestic account. Ask your bank for help if you’re having trouble, as this differs from bank to bank. This is generally known as a “one-off payment”. (Because this is a domestic transfer, it’s fast and you won’t get stung with international banking fees – we take care of that part).
That’s it. Now the recipient needs to wait just 1-2 business days after we receive your funds before they’ll receive the agreed amount of local currency (PHP) in their bank account.
What Makes OrbitRemit So Suitable for Sending Money to the Philippines?
OrbitRemit already has a large customer base with the Pinoy expatriate community and our service has been tailored towards this.
For example, we understand the importance of quick, easy transfers, as it allows for you to get on with other things, rather than having to worry about the hassle of sending money abroad. We also acknowledge that emergencies happen, and the last thing you want is to have your finances stall because of cumbersome transfer times.
We only charge a one off fee per transaction, rather than a percentage of the total transfer or a fee on the receiving end. This way, you know exactly what you’ll pay every time. Our rates are also extremely competitive and ensure more of your money will actually reach the Philippines. Go ahead and use the money transfer calculator in the top right hand corner to see exactly how much would get remitted at the other end of your next transaction.
