MoneyGram Online transfers up to $2,999 internationally. For transfers over that amount, MoneyGram directs users to USForex.

MoneyGram sends money either same day or economy. The same-day option requires the use of a debit or credit card, according to the MoneyGram website. Transfers sent this way are typically available for pick up within 10 minutes. The economy option requires the sender uses their U.S. bank account. This option sends money internationally within three or four days. The fees for the same-day service are approximately three times higher than the economy option. MoneyGram's website offers a cost estimator feature for users to calculate the approximate costs of the transfer. Fees vary and are based on the destination country and the amount of money sent, says the official website.
