How do I pay for my transfer?

Sorry, we do not accept cash

BriskRemit does not accept cash as a means of paying for your money transfer.

As an online business, it would be very difficult for you to physically get the money to us. Also, for security reasons, it is important to know where money is coming from before it is sent abroad. It is much harder to do this with cash.

Debit & credit card

You can pay for your money transfer through BriskRemit using a debit or credit card in any of the countries where our service is available.

BriskRemit accepts Visa, Mastercard and Maestro. When paying with a credit card you may be charged a cash advance fee so please check with your card provider.

All payment processed through INTERAC

INTERAC: use internet banking details to make payment. You can find out about INTERAC on http://www.interac.ca/en/
