    Default How to send $$$ from DR to US???

    I have searched the forums high and low and found tons on sending to DR, but not vice versa. I know, it is sooo not the norm lol

    I have friends that want me to purchase and ship them items (mainly computers and electronics) from the US, so they need to send me money. What is the best -and- cheapest way to do so? I gave up on trying to find a bank with offices in both countries. Any ideas???

    Bank Wire, should be about $40 US for any amount. Takes about 5 days.

    Ok, I guess that is fair. Problem with 5 days wait is that I run into really good deals and those sales don't typically last very long. Is there anything faster?

    You could always use "Caribe-expess" they do it a lot cheaper than any bank I know. You should first find out if they have a receiving house/business in your state. I know they have places in NY and New Jersey, don't know if they do business in other states.

    Hope this helps.

    We just ended up using Caribe Express, holy sh*t was that expensive! To send $2100 cost $157!!!! There has to be something cheaper. Any idea what Western Union charges? It doesnt show rates from DR to US on their website.

    Western Union is outrageously high. If there is a cheap way I have not heard of it. Best bet is having friends that go back and forth.

    It depends on how much money you want to send but you can do money gram at banco resv, popular and a couple others. On the website it gives you the rates.

    Exchange Rate 1 DOP = 0.025823 USD
    Same DayEconomy
    Send Amount 76,923.08 DOP
    Receive Amount 1,986.42 USD
    Fee* 3,076.92 DOP

    Total Cost 80,000.00 DOP
