How does sending money to India from my bank account work?

You can send money from your US bank account by choosing our “ECONOMY” service. Remitly's ECONOMY service is free when you send over $1,000. To take advantage of this service, select "ECONOMY" when selecting your Delivery Speed.

When you enter your payment information you'll need to provide your routing and account numbers just as they appear on your check.

Some things to consider when paying with a bank account:

  • Depending on which bank your recipient is using, transfers will take 3-5 Indian banking days to complete.
  • Your bank will date the transaction the business day after you send it to us and then deliver funds to us two days later.
  • We will complete the transfer to your recipient immediately after confirming delivery of funds from your bank.
  • Transactions submitted after 5:00 PM Pacific Time will be processed the next business day.
