What card types are accepted?
WorldRemit can accept most types of debit, credit and pre-paid cards that are issued by Visa or Mastercard.
At this time WorldRemit cannot accept cards from the following issuers:
- Diner’s Card
- Union Pay
Why was my card declined?
If your card declines, the best thing to do is to contact your card issuer’s payments or authorisation department who will be able to give you more information.
It is unlikely WorldRemit will be able to tell you the reason for a declined card payment so it is always best to go straight to your issuer for this information.
Are there any extra fees for paying by card?
When paying by debit card there are usually no extra fees other than those stated at the time you make payment, however there are some exceptions.
If you use a card issued in a country other than that which you are registered (for example, using a US card when your account is based in the UK), your card issuer may charge a foreign exchange fee. The fee, if any, will depend upon your individual card terms and conditions and is not charged by WorldRemit.
Some credit card issuers may charge a fee as the transaction is classed as a cash transfer. The fee, if any, will depend upon your individual card terms and conditions and is not charged by WorldRemit.
Can I pay using someone else’s card?
As a financially regulated company we need to ensure we know the identity of our customers – and this includes the source of the funds they pay with. Because of this, we need the funds to come from your own card.
In some circumstances we can accept payments from business accounts. We may, however, need to see official documentation that shows you have authority to make payments from these accounts before we will be able to release your transaction.
How long does a card refund take?
Once cancellation has been confirmed, a refund will be credited within 2 – 3 working days.
This can vary, however, if you are using a pre-paid card. For more detailed information on this, please contact your card issuer or check their terms and conditions.
