A while back I started looking into good options for sending money online. I usually just use my American ATM card, but the local machines have started adding pretty ridiculous fees. In other words, I was looking for a more cost effective way to get money to myself here in the Philippines (I plan to open an account here then send money to it as needed). I was also looking for a way to send money to people here in case there’s some kind of emergency while I’m in the States.
It seems one of the most cost-effective ways is Xoom.com
I’ve tested it once and had a good experience.
