I need to know the cost for money gram to Ghana West Africa.

Answer:

Barney, it depends on where you are sending from, and how much you are sending. You can use the MoneyGram Cost Estimator to get a precise number.

For example, I asked it how much it would cost to send $500 U.S. to Ghana, and I got this:

Exchange Rate 1 USD = 1.689551 GHS
Send Amount
490.01 USD
Receive Amount
827.90 GHS
Fee*
9.99 USD
Total Cost

500.00 USD

As you can see, MoneyGram’s fee is $9.99, which is taken out of the amount you are sending. If you need for your recipient to get $500, then you will want to add a little extra to pay the money transfer fee.
