Try Remitly. Most of my friends from Canada use this. May promo sila na $1 = Php52 for 1st time senders.

Remitly. Wala transfer fee. Mababa lang ng P1-2 per dollar pero ok na din kasi sayang $3-$5 transfer fee

Remitly lagi namin ginagamit ng family ko. Walang transfer fee pero may mga 3 days na wait. If gusto mo naman express $3.99 lang. Pinakamababa na sa lahat ng natry namin na service. :) Meron ka din free $10 gift card or discount (pipili ka) if you refer other people.

We usually use Western Union! But lately we have been using Panga! Pero tig $20 lang sent namin just to be safe. They give $30 free bonus for first time users. So if you send $20 they will add the $30. So your recipient  will receive a total of $50. $4.95 ang shipping fee. So nagpadala me; mother dearest and papah and brother! Okay naman!!!

I use Transferwise to send money to the Philippines from Canada but you can also send money from the US and other countries.

If I'm not using PayPal, my next option is Transferwise. Pero nagtaas na ng fee ang PayPal  :( kaya I'll probably use Transferwise instead. Pareho namang convenient because I can use the app for a small fee (minumum of C$4.00 ish).
