Sending money home should be easy. Unfortunately, most money transfer services make it much harder than it needs to be. 

With so many different brands in the market, exchange rate information can be hard to verify. Plus, customer service is virtually nonexistent. 

At uLink, we strive to solve these problems and tailor our service to fulfill three foundational beliefs — that sending money home should be fast, safe, and convenient. 

Here’s a quick overview of how uLink provides money transfers that you are bound to rely on. 

1. Low Fees (+ Quick Daily Exchange Rates)

When it comes to sending money home, we believe in total transparency. With uLink, you’ll always know the exact cost of every transaction. 

When you log in to the uLink app, you’ll be able to instantly view the daily exchange rate. 

No more searching or Googling for it — the exchange rate will be right in front of you. 

At uLink, we also keep our fees low for one reason: so you can send more money home without having to worry about the added charges. And when you’re ready to complete a transaction, you’ll know exactly what it’ll cost. 

Unlike a lot of other services in the market, you can be rest assured that there are no surprises with uLink. 

2. Track Your Transfers (w/SMS Notifications For Your Beneficiary) 

Whenever you send money abroad, you should be able to track it. After all, there’s nothing worse than sending money and having to guess where it is and when it’ll be delivered.

With the uLink app, you can track the status of your payments from beginning to end. Better yet, as soon as your money arrives in your beneficiary’s account, they’ll immediately get an SMS alert on their phone. 

Plus, should you ever want to speak with Customer Service, our team is always just a phone call away. You can email us or call at 1 (800) 456-3492.

3. Quick Send For Repeat Transactions

Sending money home is rarely a one-time transaction. So why make it difficult to complete repeat transactions? With uLink, we make it easier than ever to keep sending money to your loved ones. 

Here’s how simple it is:

After you log in to the uLink app, you’ll be able to view all of your recent activity in one place. When you want to send more money to a previous beneficiary, all you have to do is find their name in the “Activity” list, click “Quick Send,” confirm the payment amount, and the money will be on its way. 

It’s that easy! 

4. Choose Cash Pickup (& Even Home Delivery)

Many remittance companies can only send money from one bank account to the next. At uLink, we’re committed to providing as many delivery options to you and your loved ones as possible. 

In addition to crediting bank accounts, we also provide Cash Pickup at over 143,900 locations in 51 countries around the world. And, in select countries, we even offer Home Delivery.

Convenience is key, especially in 2021.

5. Pay Your Family’s Bills

We’re dedicated to continually providing more ways for you to support your family. Sometimes, that means helping them save time and money.  

With uLink, you can now pay your family’s bills. From water and gas, to electricity, cable, internet, phone bills and more, you can take care of your loved ones’ expenses and spare them the hassle of monthly bills.

To pay your family’s bills, all you have to do is open the app (or www.ulinkremit.com) and follow the steps below:

  • Select the country you would like to pay bills in
  • Select the service type and service provider
  • Choose your beneficiary
  • Enter the reference number to check the balance (or amount due)
  • Enter your payment details and confirm the transaction 

All bills are paid within two business days for a small fee of $2.99. 

6. Safety First

At uLink, your security is our number one priority. 

To protect your money, all of our transactions are backed by Grupo Financiero Banorte, one of the most trusted banks in Mexico and Latin America. To further protect your personal information, our state-of-the-art app features advanced encryption systems monitored by Verisign to ensure your money gets home fast and safe. 

Although we stay on top of the latest technology and processes to keep you and your financial information safe and secure, there are measures that you can take at your end that can help us keep your account safe, but staying informed of what fraud may look like is the first step to avoiding it altogether.
