Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

If all goes well, sing post is great. Try getting help, if something goes wrong, you seriously consider committing suicide. Example. Their Mail re direct had problem and asked help as all mails were still going to the older address Solution by the then Philippine call centre? Can we arrange a refun...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

I did use it today, you just need to register first at their Post Office or at the roadshow they have at Paya Lebar Square, then add your receiver...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

errr ... the 0 $ guys aren't that unfavourable, so unless I send like 10,000 or more, the variance so little. Yes, that is why I would like to know why most people prefer DBS remittance transfers. Their offerings are $0 transfer fees, with money credited latest by next business day, and with not so...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

Mate, it's simple arithmetic. You want to send X dollars. You add up the fees and the FX rate and choose the lowest. Who cares how they break up the amount they are going to whack you for? Agree. I guess I would add to my point if other factors would change their behaviour. There are consumers that...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

I use the bank that costs the lowest transfer fee. many banks are giving advantages on those benefit, so you should look up which one you would like to choose! HeyCharles, thanks! Is Service fee the only criterion that you would look at to decide on sending your money? What if the Service fee = $0,...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

of course, rates, service fee and ... Online payment. That's for me. I just go to DBS initiate a transfer and next working day, it's sent. Pay2Home had system to initiate online remittance but had to make a request, then go to DBS online, transfer to P2H, then email P2H, and hope they complete the ...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

Agree with your sentiments exactly. I hope you don't mind joining me for another hypothetical. What if it was Western Union/Money Gram though? E.g. You have to send your money to your recipient, in either cash or to their bank account. Let's just say for this example, Western Union. They promise to...

Re: SURVEY: What remittance services do you use to send money out of Singapore?

are they waiving their expensive remittance fee ?? :D And did their rates get better ? If they did waive their expensive remittance fees, but their FX rates are still the same, would you be willing to try out their services? Their FX rates are slightly higher than DBS, for Remit to Philippines. And...

I met some guys from Pay2Home at the last AustCham event. They seem to have it worked out for lower costs - their target is work pass holders, seamen etc. Pay2Home Is NOT cheap, vs other options, example, Philippines. Their main convenience factor for me was their online payment, saving you time to...
