Good news!!!!! An esteemed friend of mine :iconrinjipantera: has just informed me that "Moneygram" is available at all Walmart stores worldwide. Moneygram is associated with Walmart.

I have also been informed that sending money through Moneygram at Walmart is is a lot better than sending online because it is a lot cheaper (e.g $9.00 for sending fee).

Instructions on How to Send Money Through Wal-Mart:

1. Locate and go to a Walmart store with a Money Center that offers MoneyGram services. The search feature on the Walmart website allows you to locate a store by state and city or zip code. MoneyGram is available at all Walmart locations. You can send a MoneyGram to any state in the country or to any of the 190,000 locations around the world.

2. Take identification with you to the Walmart Money Center. You may be asked for one or more pieces of identification, which can include driver's license, government issued identification card, passport and, depending on the transaction, proof of address, such as utility bill or bank statement. Identification requirements vary in different countries.

3.Choose whether you will transfer money for same day or overnight delivery. Same day transactions arrive in minutes at Walmart stores or MoneyGram agent locations. Overnight transactions are available on the next day after 7 a.m. at Walmart stores, depending on the specific store's operating schedule.

4. Complete the MoneyGram Send Form at the Walmart Money Center. If you have a MoneyGram Rewards card, present the card instead of completing the form. The form requires you to provide your rewards card number, if available; the destination and receiver; transaction information, such as the amount, a message and test question and answer; and receive options, which include same day or overnight. Additional options -- pick up, home delivery, bank account deposit, debit card load or mobile telephone and other -- are available in select countries and may require you to provide a registration number or mobile phone number on the Send Form.

5. Read the back of the Send Form if you are sending $900 or more. The MoneyGram agent is required to complete the back of the form and provide additional information from you.

6. Select your payment method. You can choose to pay with cash or you may use a Walmart MoneyCard or a PIN-based debit card. You may also choose to add a free 10-word personal message for your receiver.

7. Sign and date the Send Form and pay the money transfer fee. The agent will give you a receipt and a copy of your Send Form, which has your Reference Number.

8. Contact your receiver and provide him with the Reference Number from the Send Form to retrieve the money transfer.

My friend, I see you're very happy about the Moneygram thing but be aware that they and Western Union are some of the best targets for scammers, just Google moneygram scam and you'll see why.

I hope you got some good mojo amulets there because the system is inherently flawed and the only hope to avoid is that you negotiate low amounts and have total trust in the people who will send money to you.

I don't have a credit card neither I want but scammers avoid that because they have better theft and scam-avoiding systems, of course that comes for a fee.

I still think this is just awesome. Before, the prices were like $14 or $15 to send at the WU and MG websites themselves. I think the reason why some people aren't commissioning is because of those fees. And unfortunately, no matter where you go, it's going to cost (a lot) more money in comparison to send money by any method other than Paypal. Frankly, it really sucks that it's not available in your area. I do hope the day comes you can let everyone know that PP is finally fully available there.

At least with Walmart, it doesn't seem as crazy to pay money to send money for a commission. :D

Sorry about your feelings for Walmart. I can only assume that the Walmart's business practices are questionable and has a reputation as a "greedy corporation". Keep in mind that I have never been to Walmart before and I have no means of sending or receiving money online like you do. Such services are not yet available at where I live thus Paypal is not yet available in my country.

If you want to express your personal feelings about Walmart, you could have sent me a note because your comment can possibly deter potential clients from commissioning me. From time to time, I have had people try to commission me by sending me the money online only to discover the complications and the higher "sending fee" which often deters them and they tell me at the last minute that they cannot send the money, which of course disappoints me a lot. Only the very few, (including yourself) can send money to me online and the rest use "Western Union".

This journal I made offers them an easier way to send cash without complications and it will be a lot more convenient doing so.

Sorry about that. I'll probably keep quiet, I just have these feelings that I'm very, very vocal about this company.

I understand how you feel. We have a store called "GAME" Here in Malawi and although it's supposed to offer bargain prices of it's goods like its home market in South Africa, the prices are still a rip-off compared to the local competitors. There is a very strong rumor that "Walmart" is coming to Malawi soon.
