More recently, it has never been easier to send money (funds) to recipients across america. For example, if someone had to get someplace to get a larger sum of money but they needed gas and were parked in a parking lot someone could get funds to them using a number of designated services. There are a number of services that send money (funds) but here are several services that I have used with success.
To make a transfer, customers will walk into a store, go to the designated money center or customer service desk, and fill out a form with the transfer amount, recipient’s name, and state the funds are heading to, since I am currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada would be the choice, Cash and debit cards will both be accepted for payment. Walmart-2-Walmart will then transfer the money and the person on the other end can pick the cash up at any store in the specified state within a few minutes.
Charges may differ – but when writing this; Customers using Walmart-2-Walmart will pay $4.50 to transfer up to $50, and a flat rate of $9.50 to transfer between $50 and the maximum of $900. Walmart says that competitors charge $4.75 to $5 for transfers below $50, and anywhere from $11 to $76 for larger sums.
So $909.50 would be the total needed to get me $900 at a Nevada walmart, and even have it put on a walmart money card. These cards can be accepted as credit and debit immediately (they have starter kits at the money center, before you receive the final card.)
Paypal is also another great service that I use in that you can handle the entire transaction from your home computer or android device. I setup and use paypal for purchases as well as receiving funds for items I’ve auctioned on ebay making transaction smooth and simple. Receiving funds is as simple as knowing the recipient’s email address, mine being firstname.lastname@example.org. Go to the website, hit send, sign-up (if needed,) and the funds will be made available within the hour – well it’s been that quick when I have utilized it.
Paypal also has available a debit/credit card that will allow you instant access to your paypal balance. When I signed up it arrived quickly approximately 7 days. I can now get gas if someone sends me funds via paypal. woo hoo.
