Ways for Sending Money to Kenya

The Shilling is the name of the money used in Kenya. The most popular Kenya Shilling exchange rate is the KES to EUR rate.

While someone might send money to Kenya for a family member who lives or works there, someone else may transfer Kenyan Shilling for a cross-border business related payment.

When sending money to Kenya from a foreign country, you get to choose from different money transfer methods. These may vary depending on where you live and the money transfer service provider you select.

Cash transfer: If you do not wish to part with your bank account details, or if you are in a hurry to send the money to Kenya, you may consider using the services of companies that operate out of physical locations or have agent networks. Some of your options include WorldRemit, Azimo, Ria, Western Union, and MoneyGram.

Electronic Money Transfers: This method gives you easy means to send international payments directly into someone’s bank account. While several banks carry out international money transfers, you might be better off turning to a specialist money transfer company. Some of the money transfer companies who specialize in electronic money transfers include TransferWise, WorldFirst, OFX, TorFX, HiFX, and CurrencyFair.

Bank Money Drafts: You may send money through international bank drafts. However, while this is a secure medium to send money, it can take weeks before the person you are sending the money to get access to the transferred money. The main benefit of this method is you do not have to provide the receiver your bank account details.

Sending Money with Email Address: Another way to send money to Kenya without using the receiver’s bank account details is to use the services of companies that let you send money to Kenya using no more than receiver’s email address. The money you send sits in an online account with the service provider you select, and you may transfer it to your local bank account as and when you like. PayPal offers this service, as does TransferWise.
