Xoom also offers a door-to-door delivery service with no additional fees and delivery times under six hours to Metro Manila when sent before 3:00 p.m. (Metro Manila time) and one to two days in most provinces.

Canadians can now send up to $12,500 CAD in a single transaction to the Philippines. For send money transactions, depending on the receiver country, users can choose from a range of options: deposit money to a bank account, send cash for pick-up or have cash delivered directly to their recipient’s door.
