Overall Satisfaction with Xoom, a PayPal Service

We use Xoom to settle bills and clear work-related expenses. Colleagues who travel a lot need to be reimbursed for their expenses - and we use Xoom to do that. This is particularly helpful as we have teams in more than 10 countries.
  • Same day delivery
  • Large coverage worldwide
  • Easy to use app
  • Large exchange markup compared to competitors.
  • Linking with PayPal balance is tricky.
  • Low daily limits
  • Same day settlement
  • Worldwide coverage
  • Mobile app
  • Positive impact with respect to same day transfer of funds.
  • Cash pickup is another plus.
  • Large markup fees is a huge let down.
Xoom has worldwide coverage - most of the competition doesn't. Also, converting currency is painful in other apps. If only the markup fees were lower, Xoom would be a killer service!

Would you buy Xoom, a PayPal Service again?


Xoom is suited to settle a large volume of payments across multiple countries. It is well suited when the workforce is spread across a wide geography. It is however not suitable in places where the workforce is present only in one country and settlement can happen along with the payroll cycle.

Worldwide coverage of payments was the single most important feature.
