Money may be deposited the same day or in as many as 3 working days, depending on when and where it's sent. After you send money, ask your recipient to contact their bank or check their bank statement to verify the deposit.

If your recipient lives in a country where we offer this service, you can send money to their mobile phone—so they can get their money even more quickly and easily.
