Christmas is truly in the air and the spirit of giving is apparent. Judging by the crowds in the malls and bazaars lately, you know everyone’s rushing to finishing their holiday shopping already, what with Christmas now only less than a month away.

Most of the Christmas presents we receive in our family come from relatives and friends here in the country. However, we do receive some from abroad as well. For some of you, this might be the case too. Gifts from abroad can come in physical items or even in monetary form. If any of you regularly receive monetary gifts from the US, then you might want your family and friends there to learn about Remitly.

Allow me to tell you more about Remitly.

  16. When my husband was still in Dubai we just use BDO. I’ll suggest this to friends who still work abroad.

  17. This is new remittance company and they should use more marketing strategies to penetrate the market.

  18. I’m not sure how Remitly is safe, I’d rather go for the traditional Bank route to make sure that I won’t lose any of my cash.

  19. Say, looks like a better alternative for making padala, though… hmm, I don’t have any relatives abroad who used to do this though.
