Banks versus money transfer companies

The first institution many people think of when they need to send money overseas is their bank. But while sending funds via your bank can be convenient, banks don’t offer their transfer services cheaply. They offer low exchange rates and charge high fees on transfers, which means that both you and your beneficiary in Armenia get a raw deal.

That’s why you should shop around to see whether a dedicated online money transfer company might be able to help. These providers offer superior exchange rates and more affordable fee structures than the banks, so they can save you a whole lot of money the next time you need to send funds overseas.

How do I compare transfer companies when transferring and receiving money via Armenia?

  • Exchange rates. Look for the company that regularly offers better exchange rates than its competitors. However, make sure those rates don’t come with hefty fees attached.
  • Transfer fees. Don’t forget to read the fine print to check how much you will have to pay in the form of a transaction fee each time you send money overseas.
  • Transfer methods. Will you send the transfer online, by visiting a branch, by making a phone call, or by using a mobile app?
  • Transfer options. Check to see whether the provider offers special transfer options which you can use to save time and money, such as forward contracts and recurring payment plans.
  • Minimum and maximum limits. If a company places limits on the amount you can send per transaction, make sure those limits will not infringe on your regular transfer requirements.
  • Processing times. If fast transfers are a must, check to see how long it will take for an average transaction to be completed.
  • Pickup options. Will the funds be sent as a bank account transfer, made available for cash pickup or transferred in some other way?
  • Customer service. Does the company offer phone support, email support and online help? During which hours can you access customer assistance?

Emergency cash transfers in Armenia

Sometimes you need to send an overseas transfer as quickly as possible, such as if you have a loved one travelling through Armenia and they have their wallet stolen. Happily, there are some providers that can deliver the necessary funds to your beneficiary within minutes.

The bad news is that these types of transactions tend to attract higher fees and some of the lowest exchange rates going around, so you should always confirm the full cost of a transfer before going ahead.
