Best ways to send money to Uganda

Bank transfer

Bank transfers are a popular option for funding your international money transfer. They take a little longer than debit or credit card transfers but they’re insanely cheap.

Debit card

Paying with a debit card makes your money transfer super-fast. However, compared to a bank transfer, it can be more expensive as they’re charged at a higher (but still low) fee.

Credit card

You can also pay for your international money transfers with a credit card. TransferGo accepts both Visa and Mastercard to make your payment options super-simple.

PISP

Some money transfers are enabled by a third-party financial entity called Payment Initiation Service Provider, or PISP, which facilitates direct bank transfers for seamless online transactions.

SWIFT

When funds are processed, payment institutions use Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (aka SWIFT), a global messaging network that secures and executes cross-border transactions.

Apple Pay

If Apple Pay is enabled on your phone, you can use your mobile wallet to send money to certain countries. It’s quick and easy but check with your bank first in case they charge you extra fees. TransferGo doesn't offer this functionality at the moment—but we're planning to.

Google Pay

You can also send money to certain countries using Google Pay if mobile wallet is set up on your Android. All you need is your receiver’s mobile number. This isn’t a functionality TransferGo offers at the moment—but watch this space.
