How to send a money transfer to Puerto Rico

1. Tell us who're you sending to

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


  • Country
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Phone (optional)


The recipient’s phone is needed to send an SMS with the money transfer control number. The recipient will need it to receive your money transfer. If you won’t tell us receiver’s phone, only you will receive a transfer control number. In this case you can send the control number to the receiver in other ways like email or messenger.

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. 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
  • Phone number


Your phone number will be verified using a 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 online 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 to you by WhatsApp. 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.
