Pay a person in the Philippines

You can use OrbitRemit to transfer money to someone in the Philippines who wants to collect it as cash from a physical location.

Step 1: Get recipient information

To make a transfer to a person in the Philippines for cash pickup you will need the following information for them:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Mobile number

Once you have the required information you can begin the process.

Step 2: Create a transfer

If this is your first time, you can read our guide to creating your first transfer:

Step 3: Create a new recipient

For first time cash pickups you will need to create a new recipient, even if you have sent to their bank account previously.

When creating the recipient, select 'A person who will collect funds' as the type of person you wish to pay.


Step 4: Pay for your transfer

Once you have completed the transfer details you will be given the details of how to pay. To ensure your transfer is processed without delay it is important that you pay as soon as possible. All the details you need will be provided once you have finalised the transfer.
