"We started using WorldRemit 2 years ago when another company unexpectedly refused to transfer money to our family in Ethiopia. The charges are very low and recently we’re able to send funds in 1 day with direct transfer to bank accounts. Also, we appreciate that were able to send cash pickup to family who do not have bank accounts."

"A prompt, fast, secure service. I was initially unsure when WorldRemit was recommended to me, but I found that it was easy to use and processed quickly, at a very reasonable rate. The UAE exchange rate was positively competitive. I occasionally send money abroad to help the same 2 or 3 friends, who I’ve known for approx 3+ years. I would recommend WorldRemit to anyone. Also, I recommend Ethiopia and Uganda as places to visit as the people are as lovely as the countries."

"I found WorldRemit a few weeks ago on Facebook. I was looking for the best, cheapest and easiest method to send money to Ethiopia and Nigeria. I decided to give it a try last week. I was amazed by the speed of the transfers. I have transferred 3 times so far via WorldRemit. My transfers were all completed within 5 minutes and received by the recipient with a relatively low commission. I recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap and efficient transfer method."
