-- When sending, choose the option: Account Deposit

-- For recipients with BDO accounts, the better choice is Moneygram, since Moneygram is a remittance partner of BDO. Money transfer would be faster.

-- For frequent senders, you can create an account with Western Union or Moneygram, so you don't have to write the same remittance information for subsequent remittances.

-- Make sure the recipient's account name and account number are correct.
