*Subject to the receiving MoneyGram agent’s availability and hours of operation, and local regulations.
Sending Money Online
Visa, Mastercard, or ACH debit of a bank account are accepted when sending money online. This makes it the best way to send money for most people. (ACH debit of a bank account is not an option from New Zealand.)
How long does it take to send money online?
There are two service levels for online transfers:
Same Day Service: uses your credit or debit card and delivers funds in minutes.
Economy Service: uses your bank account and delivers funds within three business days (not available for services from New Zealand)
The fees for money transfers may vary, depending on transfer method, the amount you are sending and where you are sending it. You can check the fee and exchange rate using the cost estimator on the MoneyGram website.
