What’s great about using online money transfer companies is not only that they’re the fastest, cheapest, and most innovative way to send money home…. they also provide transparency and familiarity that some of the bigger corporations such as Western Union cannot. Social networking sites let you feel like you’re a part of the process and know how and where your money is being transferred. There’s nothing like being reassured that sending money online is safe by seeing that others trust the company enough to become a fan on sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Many sites post their exchange rates on their Twitter feeds too, making sure you’re up to date on the cheapest way to send money home.
