How to send money to Mexico

How to send a fast, secure and affordable money transfer to Mexico from Hong Kong.

Last updated:

If you need to send money to Mexico from Hong Kong, there are plenty of money transfer companies that can help. Do your research to find the best deal for you.

Banks versus money transfer companies

Sending money to Mexico via your bank may be a convenient option, but it is not usually one of the most affordable ones. Banks offer exchange rates which are much lower than the mid-market rate, but they also charge some of the highest transfer fees around.

This is why you can save yourself a whole lot of money if you send funds using a specialist online transfer company. TransferMate offers convenient online transfers at a more cost-effective rate. It offers better exchange rates and lower transfer fees than the banks, so comparing your transfer options always makes good financial sense.

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

  • Exchange rates. Compare exchange rates to check if you are getting the best available rate. Some companies may have slightly lower exchange rates but not charge any fees.
  • Transfer fees. Check to see how much each company will charge you in fees every time you send a transfer.
  • Transfer methods. How can you place a transfer – online, at the branch, over the phone? Does the company offer a dedicated transfer app for smartphones and tablets?
  • Transfer options. Does the company offer one-off spot transfers only or can you place forward contracts, limit orders and schedule regular payments as well?
  • Processing time. Processing times range from a few minutes to several business days.
  • Transfer limits. Some companies impose minimum and maximum limits per transaction, so check to see whether these limits suit your transfer requirements.
  • Pick-up options. Will the funds be sent to your recipient’s bank account or made available for cash pick-up?
