What information do I need from my recipient to send bank transfers to El Salvador?

  • Full name. Please enter your recipient’s full name. To avoid any delays, the recipient’s name should match the name on their bank statement exactly (e.g. Maria Angela Zaragosa Garcia instead of putting only Maria Garcia).
  • Address. We need your recipient’s city and state.
  • Account details. We need your recipient’s (1) bank name, (2) branch name and (3) account number.
  • Mobile number - We use this to send an SMS notification to your recipient informing them that their funds have been credited (transaction MUST include a valid phone number for recipient per bank restrictions).
  • Sending reason. Please indicate whether it is “family or friend support,” “purchase of services,” “property payment,” or “sending fund to self”.
  • Email (optional). We use this to send an email to your recipient with details of the transaction. This is particularly useful in case they have issues receiving the SMS notifications. 

Please ensure that all your recipient’s details are correct. Once you make your transaction, it is difficult for us to amend or stop the transfer, although we will always try our best to do so.
