The service points of these companies are located allover the country and you won't have to search for them for a long time. The costs of the money transfer operations usually vary from 3 % to 5 % from the whole sum plus the fees for bank transaction ( usually no more than 3 % in the case you want to cash your money).

Fill in the blanks distinctively

To prevent some problems or misunderstandings you will have to make sure you can write the name of the receiver accurately. If you submit the wrong name of some person or organization you want to send your money to the addressee won't be able to receive it.

Remember the password

After your money will be sent to the receiving side (either a private person or a legal body) you will be given a special number. That number performs the role of the password. You will have to report it to the addressee. The addressee will have to come to the similar service point in his city, prove his personality with a passport, driving license or any other required document,fill in all the necessary forms and report the password. Only in that case he will be able to get the money you have wired. If you aim to transfer your money to some legal body the representative of this organization will have to contact you to get all the necessary data. In the case if the name of the addressee is written with a mistake ( a missing or wrong letter, erroneous capital letter, some mistakes in the numbers) he will face a lot of difficulties trying to get the money. You may also experience some trying to get your money back.

In that way you will have to choose the international bank, get this credit card and tell the pin code or password to your relative. It would be better to combine various ways to send the data.
