Sending money using the Ria website and app is simple, but you’ll need to know some information about the recipient before starting a transfer.
No matter what method you’re using to send money, you’ll need to know the country and address of the person you’re planning on sending it to.
To send a transfer, at a minimum, you’ll need to know the recipient’s:
- First and last name
- Phone number
Important: The name on the transfer must match the recipient’s government-issued photo ID. They may not be able to receive the transfer if it’s incorrect.
The app and website will always tell you the total amount — including exchange rates, fees, and how much your recipient will get — before you send.
If you haven’t already added a payment method to your account, you should have it to hand when setting up a transfer.
Depending on their country, recipients can receive money transfers through bank deposits, cash pickup, home delivery, or mobile wallets. You will need to collect additional information from the recipient based on which payout method you chose.
