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.

Bottom line

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.
