Money transfers
from Israel to Estonia

Instant payout to card or cash

How it works

Money transfers to Estonia are sent through Contact payment system. Money can be transferred directly to the recipient’s card, or paid in cash at Money Express service centers. The transfer is done instantly in either case. No bank account required to receive cash; the receiver only needs to present a government-issued ID.

How to send a money transfer to Estonia

1. Tell us who're you sending to

We’ll ask you for some basic information about your recipient:

 

  • First name
  • Last name
  • City
  • Phone
  • Payment method – cash payout or card payout
  • Recipient’s card number, if card payout is selected (*)

 

* Supported cards: VISA issued in Estonia

2. Tell us how much money you want to send

Specify the currency and amount of money that will be paid to the recipient. Then press “Get total” button. We will calculate the amount in shekels using a real-time currency exchange quote, the fee, and the total amount of money to be charged.

 

This exchange rate stays fixed after your complete your transaction to guarantee that your recipient will receive the exact amount promised.

 

When transferring to a card, the transfer amount is specified in US dollars. This amount is converted into the local currency at the exchange rate of the recipient’s card issuer.

 

We have no hidden fees. Your credit card will be charged the exact amount of money that you see on the screen.

3. Tell us a little about yourself

We’ll ask you for some basic information about yourself:

 

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Birthdate
  • Teudat zehut number
  • Issue date
  • Address
  • Phone number

 

Your phone number will be verified using WhatsApp message with the 4-digit verification code. In order to continue, you will need to enter this verification code.

4. Make sure everything looks good

We’ll show you a summary of your transfer. If everything looks good, click Next. You can also press Back and make any changes you need to.

5. Pay for your transfer with a credit card

Fill in your credit card details:

 

  • 16-digit card number
  • Expiration date
  • CVC code (3 digits on the back side)
  • Teudat zehut number

 

Then press Pay.

We accept credit cards issued in Israel with 3D secure support. 3D Secure (3-domain secure), also known as Payer Authentication is a security protocol to prevent fraud in transactions with credit and debit cards online. Currently, this service is provided by Visa and MasterCard under the name Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, respectively.

6. Get a transfer control number

After receiving your payment we will show you the details of your money transfer:

 

  • Transfer control number
  • Recipient details
  • Sender details
  • Amount to receive

 

A transfer control number will be also sent by text message to your phone. If you have provided us with recipient’s phone number, then the recipient will receive a text message with a control number as well. Otherwise you will need to send this number to the recipient by yourself.
