Money Transfers

A: Money transfers send money electronically between two participants. They’re faster than bank transfers, and can be sent anywhere in the world that MoneyGram services are offered.
A: Visit a Speedy Cash location with valid identification and pay for your money transfer. You'll receive a reference number, which you'll need to provide to the person receiving the money transfer. The recipient can then pick up the money at any Speedy Cash location, or anywhere MoneyGram services are offered, but must provide the reference number and have a valid ID.
