You can use jpay.com , Western Union Quick Collect (City Code: FLDOC), or you can send in a money slip with a money order. If there are other ways to send money, I don't know - I've only used those three over the years. JPAY is the #1 choice.

For a money order, you'll also need a money slip (and you can't get them online).
He can send you some or you can call and get some mailed to you. This takes mail time and from here in Florida it takes about a week from the time I mail it until it's on his card. You have to use the money slip with all money orders. You'll have to get one in US currency, don't forget this part. The address to mail the money order and slip will be on the back of the money slip.

You can western union from any where you can get online. Do a google for western union. You'll have to choose quick collect. The city code is FLDOC, but also in the account box you want to put his DC# and last name (DC# first). With WU, if you send it by 7 pm, it will hit his card that night and he'll be able to use it the next day.

I've never used JPay.

Hope this helps.

Kurts Hunny, I'm in England too and my guy is in Fl. I use Jpay; it literally takes seconds to send the money and they get the money the next day so I would suggest using this. It is cheaper than WU and faster for those of us abroad than using the money slips. Pm me if you want more info.

Just go to jpay.com. I highly recommend it as being the best way to send money.

I'm not sure about there but here in the states there a check cashing stores or even grocery stores that have prepaid credit cards you can buy. Also the malls have them. Hope that helps.
