    Is it really just 9.90 for transferwise? I think they're charging a percentage of the amount being remitted and not a fixed amount.

    Transferwise fee of $9.90 is for $1000 remittance. It is lower for lower amount: $4.95 for $500; $4.00 for less than $408. You can download the app on your phone too. https://transferwise.com/w/9a7824

    I use OrbitRemit.
    - lock in rate even if the deposit is coming from a different bank
    - Good rate, only rate can beat is transferwise but transferwise fees is higher and varies if the amount goes higher.

    - Free first transaction only $4 fee

    any comment on their experience with Transferwise? how long does it take for the money to be credited to your nominated account?
    The transfer is completed and was scheduled today (June 22) but still the money has not been credited yet.

    highly reco ang transferwise, best rates. kahit lumalaki yung fees nila habang tumataas yung papadala mo, mas malaki pa din ang matatanggap mo compare sa ibang remittance company.

    nito lang Wed, nagpadala ako sa pinas sa BDO account ng sister in law ko, Thursday evening dumating na yung pera.

    mas matagal if Metrobank yung receiving bank, usually will take 3 or 4 days bago ma credit sa Metrobank account. :)

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
