International money transfers

When you decide to send money to one country to other countries you must keep in your mind following five tips.

1. Consider exchange rates of currencies. Even a fraction difference will make a big difference.If you are sending regular amount , try to accumulate the money where the exchange rates are favourable to you. With the recent economic trends we must predict the exchange rates, by reading newspapers and participating in forums.

2. Check for the commission rates and limits. You may check exchange rates but fail to check the commission rates. This will indirectly increase your expenditure for international money transfers. So, check with the agent about the exchange rate and commission rates before filling up the form.

3. Don't forget to carry the ID card or passport to proove the identity. For any overseas money transfers this is must. Forgetting your id or passport will not complete the process for sending money overseas.

4. Please opt for sms once they receive the money the otherside.When you are filling the form , fill the option for "acknowledgement receipt of payment". When the otherside receive the money, you will get the immediate sms.This will make you tension free , when the otherside call you and confirm.

5. Money transfer code number should be confirmed bothside in order to avoid any delay.

Apart from this avoid making mistakes giving the name of the receiver and address and phone number details. When ever somebody get the money from foreign country , they have answer the agent without any confusion. Other wise the process will get delayed.
