        Hi Sasho,

        Thanks for your inquiry. Please be advised that when you transfer or send money to a different currency, the current exchange rate applies. So, I could not provide you exactly how much the amount to be received in pounds using MoneyGram.

        When you send 900 pounds from the UK to Macedonia, the amount received in Macedonia as of today is 948.99 Euros. Note that cash pick up is the only method of receiving payment in Macedonia via MoneyGram therefore, the cost is 46 Euros. The total cost with transfer fee is 946 GBP.

        Hope this helps!

        Best,
        Nikki

        Hi Sue,

        Thanks for your inquiry.

        While we’re unable to give a specific option on sending the cash to your daughters UK bank account, you may check this page and look for the topic “Options for sending money to the UK from the US” to see different methods in sending cash in UK.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Bella

      Will money be taken out of my bank account if a transfer fee is not paid?

        Hi Alvin,

        Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

        The answer to your question is it depends. If you use your bank account to pay for the transfer fee, then it will be taken out of your bank account. The fee would be deducted from your nominated account.

        I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

        Have a wonderful day!

        Cheers,
        Joshua

        According to their page, the transfer fee would cost you up to $9.50 to send up to $900. You may try to start the transfer and see the cost if it works for you before finalizing the transfer.
