The USA to Mexico is one of the most competitive remittance corridors where more than 15 companies are offering its services. A lot of banks and money remittance companies are also providing multiple discounts on transfer fees and best exchange rates. But, the major question arises that after seeing competitive exchange rates is which company you should pick to transfer funds from the USA to Mexico.
A lot of banks, MTOs and startups are offering these services to customers with multiple offers and benefits. Due to this competition, consumers now have a large number of choices and negotiating power. But again the question arises is which is the “best money transfer company,” according to your needs and requirement of the recipient. So, here are few base points which you should consider before transferring the US Dollar to Mexican Peso:
- Speed: How soon you want your money to reach the recipient? If you want to transfer money faster, you can use cash pickup services of WorldRemit which provides the instant transfer. While, if you have no emergency, then you can use services of Transfast, Remitly, OFX and TransferWise, which will deliver money in 2-3 working days.
- Exchange Rate: The companies offer different exchange rates depending on the fees they are charging and their margin of profit. For example, WorldRemit offers live exchange rates deducting a small amount of charges to make profits. Transfast changes its exchange rates once a day and the same will get locked when you start your transaction. Besides this, other companies offer a bit lower rates comparing to live market rates and lock-in so that the same amount will be received by the recipient.
- Fees and Other Taxes: There are taxes levied on every transfer depending upon the policies of both the countries which will be deducted from the amount paid. The fee is charged by companies on different types of transfers. Before transferring, first, watch out that you will not end up paying more than you should.
- Transfer Convenience: If one can transfer in an easy way without any support of customer assistance, then the company is considered as highly convenient. You can make transfers online without physically visiting its office. In the era of digitalization, mobile apps are also necessary which can ease the transfers anytime anywhere. Transfast, WorldRemit, Remitly, TransferWise are also offering their mobile apps so you can transfer funds anywhere anytime.
