Go to the agent’s office at the address you located in the previous step. Make sure you take a photo ID, the funds to be transferred and the company’s fee (see Resources to calculate fees).

Get the receipt from the agent. The agent also will give you a reference number (known as Money Transfer Control Number), which you have to give to the recipient. When the recipient goes to pick up cash from an agent in the USA, the reference number for the money will be required.
