If it’s your first time sending money through Remitly, you’ll get a couple of added perks: a boosted foreign exchange rate and absolutely no transfer fees on your first transfer. After this, every transfer comes with great exchange rates and your choice of delivery options, with fees from £0.99 per transaction when using our Economy service and from £1.99 when using our Express service. Furthermore, your friend or relative receiving the money will never be charged a fee by Remitly, and our transfers come with a delivery time guarantee, meaning you can ask for and we will provide a fee refund if the money doesn’t get to your recipient by the promised date and time.
The Remitly transfer process can be completed through a few clicks or taps on your computer or mobile device. How quickly the money gets to your recipient is entirely your call. If you need to get funds to someone fast, then pick our Express service, which will transfer money typically in a matter of minutes. If there’s no particular rush, you can go for our Economy service, which takes around two hours. Want to be kept in the loop on the transfer? You can have us send you and your recipient emails, texts and WhatsApp updates, so everyone knows the status of the transaction.Click here to see the list of our bank partners in Bangladesh
We work alongside many of the biggest banks in Bangladesh, meaning you can choose to send money directly to your recipient’s bank account, if that’s the most convenient way for them to receive your transfer. We do offer a few other options, though. Our cash pickup service means your recipient can collect the money in person at a designated pickup location – they just have to show the relevant reference number and some ID. This is great if they’d like to have instant access to the money in cash form.
Alternatively, there’s a mobile money option, which works like a bank transfer, except that the money is sent to your recipient’s electronic wallet linked to their mobile phone number. This is ideal if your recipient doesn’t have a bank account. Whatever method you choose, your recipient will never be charged a fee by Remitly, and you can be sure of a swift and easy transfer.
