    Default Great money transfer

    I just used RIA money transfer service. I sent myself $200 and then 10 days later $500. From my U.S. bank account to Caribe Tours, delivered in U.S. dollars. They used a security check a lot like Paypal does. The transfer took about 6 days to complete. The charge for the service was the same for each transfer and is the same for $2000.00. Two bucks per transfer! Yes...two dollars net per transfer. Xoom is fast but I do not need fast.

    Pura Vida

    What exchange rate did they give you, compared to xoom? The exchange rate is where they make their money.

    Ria 43.00
    Xoom 42.45 (abusadores)
    BAnco popular 43.60

    Banco Popular wires cost usd60+300 pesos, so difference is usd58+ 300 pesos (is about 2829 pesos).

    2829/0.6 = 4715, so below 4715 wire Ria is cheaper, good find! Most of the time I don't want to wait, but it's defintely an option.

    I us3 RIA office in switzerland ( not by internet ). 5chf by transfer up to 2000 chf ( but they give out vouchers for free transfer, a friend of mine that works there gave me 30 + ). Arrives the same day, delievered to the house. Good rates ( cant remember ), but they send you SMS/email for days with good rates.
    Even better, I got to know one of the employees. I phone him, he sends the money, I send someone round to pay him a couple of days after.

    All in all, best option for me.

    Awesome site and the price can't be beat. The only problem is that most of the time when a family member calls they need the money ASAP.

    I just checked the site and US$ to us$ is $2 only. My question is if it's from a US Bank account to deposit to a Dom Bank account, still in US$ does it take longer for processing, if anyone knows.
