    That would be okay if sending a large amount. I used this method 12 years when I was building the house, I sent 8k GBP and I think the fees were 16 GBP .

    When you guys send money through World Remit or Remitly does the data remain for the next time you send or do you have to type all the data in again from scratch.?

    (We had an issue today with Nationwide misspelling the mother in laws name so the transaction wouldn’t go through).

    We are thinking of changing the way my wife sends to World Remit or Remitly for example.

    Always found the data remained with World Remit, although I did it for cash collection.

    The main data remains, ie addressee details, phone, email a.s.o. There is a function for the card number to stay on file for further use, but we decided not to do that. It is easy enough to open the wallet and do it on the fly as and when.
    Remember that for cash collection, your nearest and dearest, is required to show two items of identity.
    My wife and I, both have accounts with worldremit,

    That’s good as with Nationwide they do not retain any data so everything has to go back in every time. Pain in butt.

    So today Mrs Ash used World Remit instead of Nationwide’s bank to bank service. It was indeed easier and cheaper. It seems like moving out of the Stone Age but having said that my mother in laws account is still run by pass book without a card.

    We used to do cash pickup before but direct to the bank has been more convenient for Mrs Ash’s mother in law.

    Ok.

    I only mentioned it as none of our lot has a bank account, and when my wife left her ATM card with PIN, before getting to the UK, we discovered that there were bank charges by withdrawing money from the various machines. And some of those charges were different, depending on location and who owned the ATM....... Crazy. huh??

    So since then, we opted for cash pick-up.

    We held off from bank to bank at first as cash pickup was easier for us (or at least as we thought), but bank to bank saves the mother in law a lot of hassle.

    I recall sending my wife’s visa application money by Moneygram in 2011. She didn’t have an account. She wasn’t very comfortable lugging that about.
