If you have plans to send a money transfer to Ghana, then we have some good news for you. We’ve recently made some changes to our Ghana transfers, and these changes are all going to improve the money transfer experience for you and your money transfer recipient.

Since we’ve teamed up with our sister company Ria Money Transfer, our transfers to Ghana will now travel through Ria’s network and channels. 

What does that mean for you? A better all-around transfer experience when you exchange to Ghanaian cedi, including:

  1. Much faster arrivals

  2. New, competitive exchange rates

  3. No third-party fees—at all. 

What’s different when you transfer money to Ghana now?

If you’ve made previous transfers with us to Ghana, then you’re probably familiar with our transfer process. 

Here’s what the typical transfer looked like before these new updates:

  • Once you’ve confirmed your transfer, it would typically arrive within 1-4 business days.

  • Your exchange rate depended on the motion of the currency markets.

  • You may have been charged additional fees from third parties.

We’re excited to let you know that we’ve made several improvements throughout our process—all of which will ensure a faster, more cost-effective, and all-around better transfer experience for you going forward. 

  • Your money will travel much faster. No need to wait days or even just hours. With our new transfer channels, your money will reach Ghana within 5 minutes.

  • New, competitive rates. Our new transfers will give you fair, competitive rates for your coming exchanges. You can trust that you’ll receive the real rate of exchange when you transfer with Xe.

  • No fees at all. We’ll handle the entire process ourselves through the new transfer channels, with no intermediaries necessary—which means no extra fees from third parties.
