When sending money overseas, you have options when choosing how your recipient obtains the funds. Among these options is a cash pickup method, which can be an excellent way to send money to someone who does not have a bank account or needs cash promptly. Xe now offers a cash pickup option for your recipient that is fast, convenient, and available in over 500,000 locations worldwide. Xe's cash pickup offering is exclusively available on their mobile app.
Cash pickup allows the recipient of a money transfer to collect cash from a physical location rather than sending the money to a bank account.
If you're the sender, you'll choose an amount of money to send to your recipient. After the transaction is successful, you'll be given a generated PIN. Your recipient will then be able to pick up the money at the selected physical location in their area.
In order to utilize Xe's cash pickup option, you will first need to download their mobile app.
If you're a new customer, select the currency you'd like to exchange and which country you'd like to send money to. You will then have the option to change the delivery method from bank transfer to cash pickup.
Follow these steps once your transfer is initiated:
1. Tap "Delivery Method".
2. Select "Cash Pickup" when prompted.
3. Enter or select your recipient.
4. Choose an available provider near your recipient.
It's that easy!
Your recipient will be able to pick up the money from a specific store or a branch from one of Xe's partners. As the money sender, you'll be able to choose the destination where the recipient will pick up the funds.
Once the transfer has been paid, you'll receive:
1. Confirmation of where the money is being sent to
2. A PIN that your recipient will need in order to pick up the money successfully
You'll want to share the provided PIN with the recipient once you receive it. Once the transfer is ready to be picked up at the selected location, you'll receive a confirmation notice. The funds can then be picked up using the PIN.
In addition to the PIN, the individual picking up the money will need a valid form of a government-issued ID that matches the recipient information entered by the sender.
Xe cash pickup is available at over 500,000 locations across over 150 countries. Use Xe's Location Finder tool, found within their mobile app or website, to identify the best location for your recipient to pick up your transfer.
Cash pickup does charge a small fee for the sender, however, your recipient picks up the money for free. All they need is the PIN and their government-issued ID.
