    What info would I need from the receiving person? How long will it take to reach them? What would be the total fees?

      Hi Marsha,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Basically, you’d need the reciever’s name, address and contact number. Transfer speed and fees vary per money transfer company you used as well as mode of transfer like if sending to bank account might take longer than 2 business days.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
