How long does Poli transfer take?
When paying for your money transfer with a POLi payment – it usually goes through instantly or can take up to 60 seconds.
Can I pay by POLi in my country?
POLi is not available in every country around the world. However, you can pay for your WorldRemit money transfer using POLi from the countries below. Simply click on them to see what the maximum amounts you can send are.
What should I do if my POLi payment is declined?
We won’t know why your POLi payment is declined. We wouldn’t have access to that information. And so the best thing to do is contact your bank’s payments or authorisation department. They should be able to give you more information.
Will I be charged for paying with POLi?
There are never any hidden or extra fees when using WorldRemit. The total you need to pay is outlined when you create a transaction. Plus, POLi never charges people to pay with POLi and they strongly encourage merchants not to charge. They aim to make paying with POLi free.
The only exception would be if your bank usually charges you to make POLi payments. If this is the case, the charge will vary dependent upon the bank, and is not charged by WorldRemit.
Can I pay using someone else’s Poli account?
No. The money you send as a transfer must come from your own POLi account. That’s because as a financially regulated company, we need to ensure that we know the identity of our customers – and this includes the source of the funds they pay with.
How long does a Poli refund take?
If you decide to cancel a money transfer made with a POLI payment, you can expect your refund to be credited within 2 - 3 working days. However, it may vary depending on your bank. So it’s well worth checking with your bank exactly how long it will take.
