Fact checked

When you’re looking for a money transfer specialist, ask if they offer door-to-door cash to your recipient’s address. Many do for no extra cost. This saves your recipient travel time, and is safer for large transfers. But not all money transfer companies offer this option and it’s not available in all countries.

How much does this service cost?

You have to pay fees for the transfer, which may vary depending on the payment method, your recipient’s location, and the amount of money you send. Fees are typically lower when you pay using your bank account.

Other than the transfer fees, there is no extra cost for taking advantage of the door-to-door transfer option. You might also choose a money transfer specialist offering a better exchange rate to get more money for your recipient.

Will the recipient have to pay a fee?

No, your recipient does not need to pay the delivery personnel.

What documentation is needed to receive the cash delivery?

Recipients will be asked to show a valid government-issued ID upon delivery of the cash to their homes.

Bottom line

With door-to-door cash, your recipients don’t need to leave home to get their money. Instead, cash is delivered right to their doorsteps, making this the most convenient option for them, at no extra cost to you. However, only some money transfer specialists offer this option and there are only a few countries where the service is available.
