What we do

The WorldRemit Android App

Our customers work hard for their money – and we believe it shouldn’t be just as hard to send that money.  Sending money home should be easy, fast and good value – enabling you to do more with it.

We want to make online money transfer faster, easier and lower cost.

We send money to over 145 countries around the world including the Philippines, Kenya, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and India, and choose whether your transfer is received as a bank deposit, cash pickup, mobile money or airtime top-up.

We have over 4 million happy customers – a number that’s growing every day. After all, 125,000 5★ reviews can’t be wrong!

What we stand for

WorldRemit's vision

We believe in helping our customers’ hard work go further. We’ve helped millions of children to go to school, helped thousands of people to receive medical treatment and, every week, we help tens of thousands of people to pay their bills.

We bring online money transfer into the modern world – and most importantly, we do it all with the creativity, imagination and colourful spirit of our customers!


Our humble beginnings

Ismail Ahmed

While studying in London, Ismail Ahmed needed to send money home to his family in Africa. Every transaction meant a long journey across the city to an agent who charged a small fortune in fees.

Right then, he decided to try to make a difference in an industry that supports millions of people exactly like him.

Ismail’s vision then – to help people just like him improve the lives of those they care about – remains at the heart of everything we stand for today.

Every saving we can make for our customers has a direct impact on the people and communities you care about. In fact, 3x more money is sent to emerging economies through personal transfers like yours than through official development aid – and those funds really adds up!


The future of our global success

Accel Partners, Technology Crossover Ventures, and LeapFrog Investments have invested $200 million in us – and as early backers of the likes of Facebook, Spotify and Netflix, we know we’re in good company! Not only that, but we’re also a member of TechCity UK’s prestigious FutureFifty.
