Using MoneyGram is a fast and easy way to send and receive money. MoneyGram can also be used to pay bills, and it offers service to many different countries around the world. Another invaluable asset of MoneyGram is the same-day service it offers, which allows you to receive money within 10 minutes.
Go to the MoneyGram website (see "Additional Resources," below) to fill out a MoneyGram form. Sending money online is more convenient than going to a retail location.
Click on "Send money online" on the lower left side of the home page. A new window will open where you will need to either sign in if you are an existing member or fill out a profile if this is your first time sending money with MoneyGram.
Click on "Sign up now." You will need to agree to the electronic consent. You will then be required to set up a new profile. If you are an existing member, sign in with your member ID. Click on the type of transfer that you would like to use. The choices are "Same Day Service," "Economy Service" and "Express Bill Payment."
Fill out the MoneyGram form with all the necessary information, such as your name, address and telephone number. Type in the recipient's name, the amount of money to be transferred and the location.
Choose the payment method of your choice. Type in the payment information in the form. Money can be sent using credit cards (Visa or MasterCard), debit card or from your bank account.
Look over the information for accuracy. Click "Send" to complete the process. Write down the reference number and provide it to the recipient.
You can also visit a MoneyGram retail location to transfer money instead of doing it online.
The recipient will need a valid ID in order to pick up the money. Be sure to inform her in advance.
