    I did. First transfer they gave me 50% off, so that's $3 (originally $6) transfer fee. Mabilis naman sila magpadala within hours andun na sa specified Philippine bank account.

    when choosing remittance company. consider niyo rin yung exchange rate...hindi lang yung remittance fee. For example,

    Forexworld.com.au charges $8 but exchange rate today is P40=$1
    Pinoyfirst.com.au charges $6 and $7(for banks outside Manila) but exhange rate today is P39.85=$1

    so kung malaki ang amount na e-transfer mo, you are better of with forexworld
    Forexworld ginagamit ko kasi my bank is outside Manila so maliit lang difference sa remittance rate sa pinoyfirst. ang ginagawa ko para makatipid sa remittance fee ay once a month lang ako nagpapadala pero malaking amount instead na weekly or forthnight

    Do you still send money to the Philippines? We offer the highest exchange rate than banks. It is still at $4 per send. Try sending money to the Philippines with us again. Thanks!

    This is my take on this po ha.

    Based on today's rates: Forexworld 40.05; iRemit 39.85

    Fee: $8 forexworld; $4 iRemit.

    If magpapadala ako $2500, P500 better ang forexworld. Ang difference lang sa fees ay roughly P160 cheaper ang iRemit.

    If umabot $5000 ang padala ko, P1000 better ang forexworld. Ganun pa rin yung difference ng fees.

    I think I will go for better rates than better fees, lalo na for bigger amounts. If smaller amounts naman like $500, mas ok ang iRemit dahil mas makakatipid sa fees.

    Pero I think may days na pareho both ng rates eh. Yun ang inaabangan ko. :D

    Yup, I'm usually with forexworld din. Sa cebu, around 3 hours, pero mabilis pa rin yun. Although mababa today ang rates, 39.60. :(

    Guys, tinatanggap ba ng foreworld kahit inde certified true copy yung ID mo? ang hassle kasi kung magpapa CTC/notaryo pa extra fee pa yun.

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.
