    yeah xoom, great conversion rates, better than bank, but they have a 3k per day limit. so if you have mor than 3k to transfer you need to do it over several days

    No need to worry. Many people are being using xoom and are satisfied.
    Your transaction goes smoothly without any problem.

    i think the first time they will call you to verify. esp if you are from india and initiated the transfer with an indian ip they will certainly cal, but once verified you can trasnfer as many times as you want.

    It will go fine Joe. Xoom has been there for many years and although I haven't used it I've seen it get really good reviews at various forums. Also, its supposed to be much cheaper than the other famous money transfer company - Western Union

    Hi There ..

    Xoom is far better than paypal ... send it as check .. it's easier to get it transferred ... Cuz there is only one bank dealing with them and their not that prominent.

    Moneybookers / Moneygram is Ok .. though I found the latter's conversion to be poorer than paypal!!

    WU is good but costly.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards

    I have used Xoom and iKobo and have been pretty happy with both. For large amounts, I use MoneyGram.
