Transfer cash to China – the money in minutes** service.


Your receiver might need cash urgently, cash which you can send quickly and simply online, with your credit or debit card (Visa®, Visa Electron®, MasterCard®, Maestro®, Visa Cartes Bleue®).

You can give your receiver the choice of our over 36,000 agent locations*** across China to pick their cash from. If you need to send cash in a hurry, then our money in minutes** service might be exactly what you need.



Send money online directly to a bank account* in China


You can send money online directly to your receiver’s bank account** in China from a 1.90 EUR transfer fee.* Your receiver won’t have to travel to an agent location to pick up cash, for convenience.

Sending directly to a bank account** may take a little bit longer, up to 3 business days, so, in each instance, you should weigh the cost and convenience against the urgency of the transfer.
