But say no more! If you have any relative or friend residing offshore, we have one way to help you transfer money in a jiffy. And, you all are used to this method. Want to know more! Then read the entire article simplified with questions and their answers. 


What Has Happened?

Google Pay has partnered with Wise (an online money transfer corporation) and Western Union. As a result of this partnership, Google Pay users in India can send or receive money to their relatives and friends residing in the US and Singapore. 

What Is The Benefit?

Though the service providers had their money transfer applications, using them was lengthy, and payment security was doubtful. However, with Google Pay, you get secured transactions happening within seconds, and to do so, you don’t need to install any extra application. So that means, ONE LESS APP.



What’s Mandatory?

1- As Google Pay is the primary source governing the entire transaction, users at both must have their registration on the app. 

2- The sender should have their registration with the UPI, and the receiver must have his/her account connected via UPI in India and Pay Now in Singapore.

How to Initiate The Payment?

  • Save the recipient’s registered number in your contact list. If not, you can also use an email ID.
  • Open the app and tap on the recipient’s name or enter their email ID. When the payment window opens up, you’ll see a disclaimer saying you’ll need to use a Google Pay Partner for sending money internationally.
  • Enter the amount you want to send in the bottom box and tap on pay.
  • A window will pop up asking you to choose between Wise and Western Union. Also, you’ll be able to see the actual amount that the recipient will get in their bank account.
  • Upon proceeding, there will be the following options listed:
