OFWs Can Send Money to the Philippines Thru BDO Remit

There are now plenty of ways for OFWs to send money to their families in the Philippines.  These include:

  • Bank-owned remittance services like BDO Remit or BPI Expres Remittance
  • Internet banking
  • Non-bank remittance services like Western, Xoom, Moneygram
  • Bank wire transfer
  • Post-dated checks
  • Payment processors like Paypal

Typically, you choose a remittance service or method depending on:

  • Reliability – Mapagkakatiwalaan ba?
  • Speed of remittance – Kailan darating sa pamilya?
  • Exchange rate – Magkano sa peso?
  • Accessibility of sender to remittance office – Malapit ba ang office kung saan magpapadala?
  • Accessibility of receiver to where remittance is given – Malapit ba ang pamilya  sa bangko, service o sa ATM na daratnan ng remittance?
  • Remittance fee – Mahal ba ang pagpadala?

One of the ways to send money to the Philippines is through BDO Remit.
