Now You Can Send Money Anywhere in Minutes

Do you need a way to send money–to the mainland, abroad, or just to another island–easily, quickly, securely, and cheaply? Then money transfers are just right for you.

Money transfers, through transfer agents or money transmitters, are now regulated by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the federal government watchdog agency. Transfer agents must meet security requirements, so your money transfer and banking, credit card, or debit card information is safe and secure. Transfer agents will have to make all costs, exchange rates, and timing clear to the consumer, and issue a receipt when the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rules go in to effect later this year. They are held responsible for most errors made by them, and can be subject to investigation if necessary.

In short, a money transfer is now regulated and is safe, quick, and easy to do:

  • It’s convenient: PayDayHawaii is now a wire transfer agent for MoneyGram© Payment Systems, Inc. Now you can send money online from with MoneyGram©, in addition to visiting one of our convenient PayDayHawaii locations. Online services are available 24 hours a day.
