We know how important your time is, so we've made sending money to Peru as easy and quick as possible. So you can focus on things that matter most.
How long does it take to transfer money to Peru?
Your first transfer through Sharemoney may be delayed for initial verification, but once your account is verified, all transfers are processed immediately. Your recipient usually has access to the funds within several minutes or up to one business day (depending on the receiving bank's hours of operation, time zone differences, and banking holidays).
Can I send money to Peru using my debit card?
Yes, Sharemoney accepts debit cards as payment. This is often the fastest and cheapest way to send money through Sharemoney.
Can I send money to Peru using my credit card?
Yes, we accept Visa and Mastercard credit cards. However, sometimes your issuing bank might charge additional ""cash advance"" fees on money transfers if you use your credit card. This fee is NOT charged by Sharemoney. Please contact your bank to find out if they would charge cash advance fees. We recommend using your debit card to avoid any potential fees.
How will my recipient in Peru receive the money?
When you send money to Peru, you have the option of selecting either Cash Pickup or Bank Deposit as the delivery method. We work with some of the largest banks in Peru that accept our bank deposits. We also have hundreds of cash pickup locations if your recipient would rather claim the money at a location near them.
