This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Xoom by PayPal and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
As many of you know, many of my family members and a few friends live overseas. In fact, a 2016 study by the United Nations has revealed that an estimated 244 million migrants live outside the country where they were born, leaving who knows how many of our loved ones back home in our mother countries. Aside from missing them terribly over the holidays, sending gifts or money can seem pretty difficult.
Additionally, for those who have the added responsibility of sending money to help families overseas, it’s especially necessary to have the tools that can adequately support money transfers. Fortunately, technology is making it easier to close geographic distances and stay connected by supporting our families who are away during the holidays. Introducing Xoom PayPal.
What is Xoom PayPal?
Features of Xoom PayPal
Send funds from your phone in seconds
If sending money to your relatives abroad, Xoom allows them to send you a ‘request’ for money, so it’s no longer necessary to write down complicated account information or make mistakes guessing mailing addresses. After receiving the request, all you need to do is log into Xoom, slide and confirm the request – the transaction is on its way.
Instantly send mobile phone reloads
With Xoom, you can also send instantly airtime to prepaid mobile phones on any occasion. Keep the family connected and not miss a moment of catching up. All you need is their number and your loved one will receive a text message confirming the reload.
Pay utility services from the comfort of your couch
If your relatives deal with the hassle of traveling from store to store and waiting in long lines just to pay their bills, you can give them the gift of time. With Xoom, you can directly pay their bills right from the comfort of your own home. All you need is their account number and Xoom will show you the outstanding balance.
Free customer support 24/7 in Spanish and English
Xoom guarantees that your money will be received or they’ll refund your transaction in full. Plus they offer 24/7 support to help you along the way.
