Sending money to loved ones back home? Planning a trip? Whatever your reason for transferring, if you have plans to send money to Indonesia, we have good news for you. From now on, every money transfer you send to Indonesia will have several new, great features.

Because we recently aligned with our sister company Ria Money Transfer, we are now sending our money transfers to Indonesia through Ria’s channels. What does this mean for you? 

From now on, when you send money to Indonesia, you can trust your money transfers will have:

  1. A much faster arrival time

  2. New, competitive exchange rates

  3. No third-party fees.

What else is different about sending money to Indonesia?

Before we discuss our recent improvements in more detail, let’s start by taking a quick look at what your experience used to be like when you would send a money transfer to Indonesia. 

  • Your money would typically reach Indonesia within 1-4 business days.

  • Your exchange rate depended on currency market motion.

  • You may have been charged additional fees from third parties during the transfer process. 

But that’s not the case anymore. Now, when you send money to Indonesia, you can expect the following:

  • Your money will arrive much sooner. You won’t be waiting days anymore. With our new transfer channels, your money will reach Indonesia in real time.

  • New, competitive rates. Our new transfers will give you fair, competitive rates for your coming exchanges, straight from the live currency markets.

  • No third-party fees. Now that we’re using our own channels to send you transfers, there won’t be any intermediaries involved. What does that mean? It means no extra fees hidden throughout the transfer process. What you see is what you get.
