Picking up at Chedraui
Your recipient will need to have a Cartera Dinámica withdrawal card.

To get the card at any Chedraui, they’ll just need to show a valid passport or ID (Credencial de Elector/EFI) and a photocopy of the same.

Picking up at Caja Popular Mexicana
Your recipient must be a member of Caja Popular Mexicana. If your recipient doesn’t have membership, they can sign up when picking up cash (must be at least 18 years old). They’ll also need to have:

  • 750.00 MXN membership fee (which will be deposited into the account)
  • Birth certificate and a copy of the same
  • Two photos

Your recipient can also pick up cash at Banorte — no membership is required. They simply have to present the transaction number and a valid ID.

Picking up at Elektra in the state of Tamaulipas
If your recipient will be picking up more than 4,000 MXN at Elektra in Tamaulipas, they may need to provide:

  • Proof of address
  • A digital ID scan
  • A secondary ID

They may also be required to fill out a form.

Some locations may not pay more 5,000 MXN and may have monthly payout limits. Please contact the location for more information.
