    If you're in the US, google wallet (dude you can attach money right to your email!)

    There's also paypal.

    Maybe even square if you're willing to take the 3% hit per transaction and they can use credit cards.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    From a fee perspective, there is no fee as long as the sender either sends from funds out of bank account or from the respective Google Wallet or PayPal Account balance. The fees show up when the sender uses a credit card. Both charge 2.9% of the transaction amount, but PayPal adds 30 cents on top of that fee.

    Also noticed that the fee applies to credit and debit cards for PayPal, but only for credit cards through Google Wallet.

    Google Wallet (https://support.google.com/wallet/answer/3122600?hl=en)
    It's free to send money directly from your bank account, using your Google Wallet Balance, or using a debit card. There's a fee of 2.9% per transaction (minimum $0.30) to send money using a credit card.
    Receiving money, and transferring it to your bank account, is always free regardless of the funding source the sender chooses.

    For sending money and for money transferred in and out of your Wallet Balance, there's a limit of $10,000 USD per single transaction and a total limit of $50,000 USD per 5 day period.
    There's also a $500 limit per 30 days to add money to your Wallet Balance with a credit/debit card.
    These limits may be subject to change at any time.

    PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees)
    When paid from PayPal balance or bank account
    Free when sending money inside the US

    When paid from Debit/Credit card
    2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction (the sender decides who pays this fee)

    Outside the US
    0.5% to 2% fee when fully funded with your bank account or PayPal balance or 3.4% to 3.9% if paying with a credit or debit card

    I've sent money to my parents a few times with Wallet and it's been super easy.
    Of course they need a Google account.
