how Xoom  money transfer functions

Xoom: fast money transfers and ease of use.

Xoom provides users with cheaper than those of its parent company PayPal services.

Its costs are higher than of many other international money transfer operators, but transfers are usually almost instantaneous (but it may take a few days for the recipient's account to be credited in accordance with his bank's terms and conditions).

In many countries there is a fairly wide network of Xoom cash pickup locations, so the recipient can get your transfer without any bank account or credit/debit card, and you can pay for it with your PayPal account and for its refund you can also use a payment in cash.

The Xoom site and its app are easy to use, but the FAQs are in English only; telephone support is available in English, French, Spanish, German, Arabic and Filipino during certain hours in corresponding countries; you can also get help via email.

The Xoom site shows you immediately and without logging in your upcoming costs, speed and available options for your transfer. There is also a feature allowing you to repeat your previously executed money transfer.
