Australia is one of the biggest senders of money to the Philippines. According to the Pew Research Centre, in 2016 money transfers to the Philippines from Australia amounted to nearly $1 billion USD, contributing significantly to the country’s GDP.
With the Filipino-Australian community sending money home to support their family and friends with living expenses, education, or healthcare, it has been increasingly important for the community to find the most effective money remittance service.
CulturalPulse has analysed the top six digital remittance services Filipinos in Australia use to send money home, to help make your decision between providers easier. To score each provider, we’ve created a 41-element scoring system across the following nine variables. All our scores are based on desktop research and an independent test by sending money to the Philippines. Each variables’ weighting is dependant on the importance it holds in the community.
