  • We like to keep things cheap and simple here at OrbitRemit, so for all transfers under $10,000 we only charge a tiny fee of $4 per transfer for all destinations other than the Philippines, which is $6. Sending over $10,000? That's free of charge! 

  • To see just how great our rates are, simply login to your account and use the real-time calculator to select where you want to transfer to. 

  • Restrictions on how much you can transfer are determined by which country you are transferring to. You can view more info on maximum transfer and receive amounts.

    These limits are imposed by banks and local regulators and OrbitRemit does not have control over these restrictions.

  • We usually receive payments to our New Zealand bank account within 4 hours.

    This is how long your bank takes to send us your money. We have no control over this part of the process but if you make payment to us before your banks cut-off time (generally 10pm local time) we should receive it the following morning. If your payment is made after 10pm local time your funds will reach us the following afternoon.

  • This depends on where you are transferring to. You can view more details on processing times by destination.

  • Yes. As part of creating a first-time transfer from NZ you will need to complete verification. This applies to all customers, regardless of where you are transferring to or the amount.

    For more information on what is required see verification.

  • Yes, you can create a business account. Please note however that we cannot offer services to charities, NGOs or religious organizations needing to make transfers from New Zealand.

  • We can't cancel your transfer once it has been completed. However, if the status of your transfer is ‘Awaiting Payment’ or 'Awaiting Update' then there is still time to cancel and arrange a refund.
