Tested: Countries You Can Online Send Money Transfers to by Provider

International money transfers from bank account to bank account: which countries you can send money to by 13 providers

Insights from the finder.com Money Transfer Awards 2017

finder.com takes seriously the objectivity and evaluation of our research, which is independently funded and without biased consideration from any of the participating providers. We believe strongly in consumer transparency and helping them make the appropriate decision. Finding the necessary information to provide the correct recommendation were the goals of this research. As a business, we do receive commissions from some of the providers that participated in the study, but this did not skew the results. To maintain credibility as a reputable source of information, we had to take an unbiased approach even if winners were not clients.

Just because you can send money to another country does not mean you can send it to a bank account

Using our credit cards, shopping online, splitting dinners with Venmo have become apart of daily life for most Americans. As a result, when a provider says they can send to particular country, it can be easy to assume that you can send to someone’s bank account. However, this isn’t always the case. Instead, having the recipient pick up cash at a physical location or add funds to a mobile carrier may be the only available options.

Which providers can send funds internationally to a bank account?

From testing online money transfer providers for the finder.com Money Transfer Awards, we found that the countries available to send from the U.S. weren’t always obvious. You had to search through FAQs (which often weren’t up-to-date) and just because the country was listed in the drop-down menu, didn’t mean that you could actually transfer money to that location. We also are an online business and know how important digital convenience is to finder visitors. As a result, we only counted countries that were able to send bank account/debit to bank account. We did the tedious process of checking each drop down for our 13 finalists: TransferWise, WorldRemit, Xoom, Sharemoney, Western Union, RIA, MoneyGram, World First, Paypal, Circle, Transfast, Pangea, and Small World for you. This was a major determining factor for winning Most Convenient.

finder.com Money Transfer Awards Lead Researcher Olivia Chow explains methodology
