How to Pay for your Kapitari Retreat
Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult for Peruvian companies to get set up with a credit card payment provider, so please accept our apologies that payment is not quite as simple and straightforward as we would like it. However, we have a number of payment methods for you to choose from, most of which do enable you to use a credit/debit card.
Whichever payment method you use, please send $425 USD if you’re paying a 50% deposit, or $850 USD if you’re paying in full.
Also, important: If the person paying is different from your name then please communicate that to us, otherwise we may not know who the money is intended for. Also, if you (or someone else) is paying for more than one person, please also tell us the names of all retreat participants the payment is intended for.
If you have a Paypal account then you can pay us by Paypal. For us, this is our least preferred method because Peruvian Paypal does not give us immediate access to the funds and can take several weeks to transfer the money to our bank account.
You can choose to pay a 50% deposit or you can pay in full. Just select what you want to pay below and click “Pay Now”.
2) Remitly or WorldRemit
Both Remitly.com and WorldRemit.com are very similar services that allow you to send money to anyone in the world using their website or app (WorldRemit is now phone app only). You can use a credit/debit card to pay for both services.
We think Remitly.com is the better service and have superior customer support (in our experience) should you need it. They have a phone app, and you can use their website at https://www.remitly.com/
Both services allow you to send money that can be picked up, or you can send money to a bank account (which is far cheaper than using SWIFT). Remitly costs less than $5 to send money.
Instructions for Sending with Remitly
Select to send money to Peru but select USD as the currency (NOT Peruvian Soles).
You can select to pay by Credit/Debit card or bank transfer.
You then select Bank Deposit or Cash Pickup (either is fine).

3) Western Union
You can send money to us using Western Union (https://www.westernunion.com/). You can either use a local agent or send through their website using a credit/debit card. However, please note that some banks block debit/credit card transactions to Western Union because they consider it to be high risk.
Please send the money to Jazmin Culquiton Ruiz. It’s extremely important that you use her full name, otherwise she will not be allowed to pick up the money in Iquitos. The name has to exactly match her government ID card.
The location you’re sending to should be Iquitos, Peru
