Xoom is a PayPal company, and as such, it is much faster than the competition at getting money to the destination.
Funds can be transferred via credit and debit card or bank transfer, and in some countries, you can use Xoom to pay bills or top up a prepaid mobile phone balance.
The hefty transaction rates and exchange rate margins make this a costly option in comparison to some of the other money transfer companies, but it is a fast way to send money internationally.
