How to send money

Visit your local Money Services to send cash to someone important to you in Israel. It’s easy to get started – just follow these simple steps.

  • Find your nearest Money Services using our store locator.

  • Stop by and give the store associate the receiver’s name, their location, and the amount you want to send so the associate can set up the transfer.

  • Choose how the receiver will receive the funds.

  • Choose your transfer option.

  • Give the fee* and amount to be sent to the store associate either as cash or using a bank-issued debit card from the US.

  • Give the receiver the 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) so they can pick up the cash safely – they’ll also need a photo ID.

The new shekel has been the official currency of Israel since it replaced the old shekel in 1986. One shekel is divided into 100 agora – and banknotes usually come in denominations of 20, 50, 100 and 200 shekels. The new shekel is also used in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15. Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
