Money Remittance Tips for OFWs

Safety and security is everyone’s top priority. While most safety measures are practiced on the road and in the office, one must not forget to take the same measures in money remittance. Money transactions may look simple and totally risk-free, however, you must also be aware that there are people who do not have your best interest at heart. In this case, you must always be careful and knowledgeable when it comes to money remittances. Here are just a few factors to consider when sending money to your loved ones in the Philippines:

Consider foreign exchange rates before every transaction.

The amount you’re sending would equal to a much bigger amount when it reaches the local remittance outlets, however, you must also time your transactions, in terms of following the foreign exchange values. A dollar that amounts to 49 Pesos today may be equal to 45 Pesos tomorrow. Study the ever-changing patterns to ensure that your loved ones back in the Philippines would receive a much bigger value.

Choose a well-known remittance center.

Some remittance center offers a low service charge for the transaction, but holds the risk of a non-secured transaction. It is much better to deal with a reputable agent to avoid any hassles or possible scam in the long run. Your loved ones would be waiting for your money transfers, ensure that they would receive it and not some unknown stranger.

Make the most of technology.

Instead of visiting an agent, you may just transfer money using your smartphone. There are certain apps that allow you send money with just a few clicks. Avoid long lines and send the amount on time.
