I have to use one of these options now for a vendor and I’ve never tried them. Any recommendations over which is better? Any experiences? Any advice would be great.

Never used those. I think it depends on your bank.

There's a thread for Remitly in this section and I know one of our popular International vendors was using Sharemoney so if you try a search for it @fhdbeuf then you may find some information on it that way.

I did not have any success wirh Sharemoney with the vwndor you are speaking of.  However, they banned me a year ago for too many transactions.  I was hoping they forgot but no such luck.

I tried sharemoney but it’s not licensed in my state apparently so I couldn’t send. Remitly was successful.

Can I vent?  First time using Sharemoney  - and they have a  hold on my funds for what will soon be 24 hrs.  Can I just say MY funds again.  Who the hell are these people lording over where I send my money?  I jumped through all kinds of hoops all day back and forth, and now crickets.  I've gone from being intimidated and practicing how I was going to coerce them into sending MY funds, to being prepared to tell them to cancel the transaction if they give me any lip.  The notion of groveling to try and send my own money ... my next donation should be to the libertarian party.   PS  - consider Remitly, and thank you for listening  :)

They generally release funds after 1 business day. That’s common practice with SM. After using them 5-10 times, they will want your life history and ID to continue. So use them very sparingly.

Nope.   It was on hold for a day and half with no explanation except to periodically ask me for more documents.  So I finally contacted them and had them cancel the transaction and return my funds.   I would only use an online transfer service again if it could somehow be done with no connection to my shipping address.  The blatant paper trail made me incredibly uneasy.    I know some ppl have success, but I am BTC or CIM from here on out.      @fhdbeuf

@never2many  I tried to be patient and gave them about 36 hours.   It's strange, when I said "either release my funds today or cancel my transaction" they cancelled it.  Also, for anyone getting ready to use these services for the first time, check thier licensing on the website before starting to make sure they are licensed in your state.
