What to know about Moneygram
- High fees. As it is with other financial solutions, MoneyGram charges a fee on both international and local transactions. As a rule, the transfer fee when sending from a bank account to another bank account is cheaper when compared to sending via a credit or debit card.
- Maximum limits. There is a transfer limit of $10,000 per transaction and a monthly transfer limit when sending money online. In a situation where you have to send a larger sum, visiting the MoneyGram agent in-person is a better option as it will allow you to send more money.
- No hedging options. Hedging tools when used in the right way can be used to save money by locking in an exchange rate for future transfers. MoneyGram doesn’t offer any hedging tools to help you save exchange rates.
- Inconsistent exchange rates. Ensure you pay attention to the exchange rate when sending money via MoneyGram because the exchange rates vary depending on your payment method and your recipient’s receiving method.
