2. Select Join Remitly and create your free account.

3. Enter the amount of money you want to send. The app will automatically do the math.

4. Select your preferred delivery speed. Economy is free but delivers for around 3 to 5 business days, while Express can send in just minutes with a fee of $3.99. (It’s free this month for a limited time only.)

5. Choose how you would like the money to be delivered.

6. Add your recipient’s basic information and contact details. Plus, select an option to notify them when the funds are ready.

7. Input your name, contact details, birthday, and the last 4 digits of your TIN/SSS for verification.
