If you are one of the 12 million Filipinos working abroad, chances are you send money back home to the Philippines. Whether you’re sending remittances to help with savings, debt, education, medical expenses, or even just as a gift, every dollar is important.

But the traditional methods of sending remittances to the Philippines are often expensive and difficult to use. At Remitly, we know how important it is to be able to transfer money safely and easily.

Many of our Filipino customers send money to PSBank, also known as the Philippines Savings Bank, which is one of the most popular banks in the Philippines. Through Remitly, you can send money to any PSBank account as a deposit in just a few minutes.

Send Money to PSBank in the Philippines in 4 Easy Steps

Sending money to a PSBank account takes less than 10 minutes on your end. All you need is the Remitly app, your receipt’s information, and a payment method.

  1. First, download the Remitly app and create an account.
  2. Tell us how much and where you want to send and select “Bank Deposit.”
  3. Enter your recipient’s name, address, and bank account number.
  4. Add your payment information.

And you’re good to go! You can also send to many other banks and cash pick-up locations in the Philippines with Remitly.

Choose between sending PHP from any of our sending countries, or USD if you’re located in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, or the United Kingdom.

The best part is, you can track your transfer from the app itself, and your recipient can get SMS updates. That way you never need to guess when the money will arrive.

Why Should I Use Remitly to Send Money to PSBank?

Millions of people around the world use Remitly to send money home thanks to our trusted app. While the process to transfer money is fast and easy, we run careful security checks behind the scenes to make sure your information is safe and sound.

Most remittances and bank transfer portals charge you based on how much you send. That means your dollar, pound, or euro doesn’t often go as far as it should.

Instead, Remitly offers a simple flat fee based on delivery speed—at the time of this writing, it is $3.99 for an express transfer and zero for an economy transfer. And if you send more than $1000 to the Philippines from the U.S., you won’t be charged any fees.
