You can use this system to send money to and from yourself, or to and from your family and friends in other countries for very cheap rates. Much cheaper than normal bank transfers which often charge you $20+ to send money, and sometimes another $20+ to receive your funds. It is also cheaper than Western Union and other types of money wiring services. This is also an alternative to PayPal which is often not available or is limited in many countries.

You can also add money to your Moneybookers account from a credit card and transfer to another bank account. It really makes transferring money easy and is a much better and cheaper way to transfer money if you don’t want to pay for all of the bank transfer fees. Note: If you are signing up as a US resident, you should register with the foreign address that you will be sending money to or from. If you are adding a US bank account, you should enter your foreign bank account first, then your US bank account after.
