It's a fact that emergencies sometimes arise when you least expect them. If you have a friend or relative. that needs some financial assistance, it's good to know the best way to transfer your money.

Send Money With Xoom Today! Many money transfer services allow customers to send funds online, and have that payment directed to another back account or a money pickup location across the globe. This easy money transfer provides a tremendous amount of convenience, and saves the hassle of searching for and driving to a money transfer location where you may not feel entirely safe.

Online money transfers can be made from the convenience of a computer, using a credit card, debt card or bank account information. The money is then sent immediately to whomever you wish, for a fee. The fees for this service vary depending on the recipient country, currency and more.

However, not all money transfer companies are the same. In fact, some money transfer services are definitely worth avoiding. Before you send money online, you should consider the following:

  • Location. Will the money transfer service work with the bank you want to send to? If not, where can you send your money so that it can be picked up?
  • Cost. What are the fees involved with the money transfer? How fast can your money be moved? How does that compare to the competition?
  • Reputation. Does the money transfer service have a strong reputation in the marketplace?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best money transfer services available today. We hope these reviews help you send money safely right away!
