      Xoom is best now. I was using Pakremit ( NBP service) for years and it worked really well. Great rate, no fees, however, its no longer available. I think paypal bought the service from NBP. So far I am quite pleased with Xoom for both cash pick up or direct bank transfer.

      Do you need a account for xoom? does it take time to go through verification before you are able to send?

      Yes account is needed. I think its pretty quick verification as going by memory. There is a longer verification process if you want to increase your limits but for basic limit which is around $10K a month, its almost instant.
