What does my recipient need to collect a cash pickup transfer?

To collect a cash pickup transfer, your recipient will need:

  • Valid photo ID that shows their full name. This must match the details supplied on the transaction. It is therefore important that the information entered on the transaction matches your recipient’s ID so please check this is accurate before sending.
  • The transaction reference number. This will have been sent to your recipient by SMS once the payment is available for collection. It is therefore important that the phone number for your recipient is accurate before creating your transaction.

Will my recipient be charged when collecting cash?


Your recipient will not be charged by WorldRemit or any partner in our network when collecting money as cash. 

If you choose to make a mobile money transfer and your recipient visits a third party to withdraw the mobile money funds they may be charged a fee. This is discretionary and charged by the third party, not WorldRemit.
