We can only pick up cash at one of Ria 241,000 agent locations in 131 countries worldwide. All we need to pick up the cash is a valid government issued photo ID and the Pin number offered by you.
You can send money from your U.S. bank account by selecting “Bank Account” during the payment selection process. We can pick up the money from one of the Ria 241,000 agent locations.
When you enter your payment information to pay via your bank account, you will need to know your routing number and your full account number.

You can safely and securely send money using your U.S. bank account, your debit card or your credit card.
Using your bank account
Using your bank account is the most cost effective, but most time consuming option. Bank funded transactions start at an all-time low cost of $3 – except in the Philippines – where it is free. Additionally, bank funded transactions take, on average, four business days. This is because we need to verify with the bank that the funds are available.
In order to use your bank account, you will just need to know the routing and bank account number.
Using your de..
There are several options available to you to find answers to your money transfer questions. Ria is alreasy there to help — so all you need to do is choose which option works best for you. Here is a list of your available options:

In order to send more than $3,000 in one day, please visit one of the 241,000 Ria agent locations. Unfortunately, it is not possible at this time to send more than $3,000 in one day online. Additionally, the maximum amount of allowable money transfers per use during any rolling 30 calendar day period is $7,999.99 USD.
The costs depend on the amount you are sending and the speed in which you send your money.
While the actual cost increases based on the amount of money you choose to send, the price per dollar decreases as you send more.
In terms of speed, you have three choices in selecting how to send your money:
1. Bank account: Sending money through your bank account is the least expensive option but will take four business days from when you verify the two micro deposits Ria deposits in your account.
2. Debit card: If you send money from your debit card, your transfer w..
Throughout the money transfer process, Ria will notify you via e-mail when any status changes are made — and this, of course, includes when we receive the funds.
In order to send money you will need to know our first name and last name, our address and phone number. Additionally, we can only pick up the money at a local agency, so any bank account should not be required.
You can send up to $2999.99 per money transfer, per day. However, please be advised that the max amount you can send in 30 days is $7,999.
If you would like to send more than this, we ask that you visit one of Ria agent locations to provide additional information including an ID and other necessary documentation that will help them ensure a safe and secure transfer per AML (Anti Money Laundering) guidelines.
* Please note, Oklahoma and Arizona residents are limited to send a max amount of $999.99 per user per calendar day.
The fastest way to send money is by debit or credit card. The processing time for debit and credit cards takes, on average, 15 minutes. If, however, you prefer to send money via your bank account, the processing time takes approximately four business days from when you are able to verify the micro deposits Ria will place in your account. This is because it takes time to verify with your bank account that the funds are in fact available.
When receiving money, a cash pick up or courier delivery will be that fastest method – although both options are dependent upon the payout agent or courier’..
