What is a remittance?

“Remittance” is another word for a money transfer. 

These are usually sent between friends and family in different countries, for personal use. That can include paying household bills, healthcare, education and general living costs.  Sometimes people send money to themselves if they have a mobile phone or bank account overseas.

More than $500 billion in remittances are sent around the world annually, a number that is increasing every year.

What is WorldRemit?

WorldRemit is an online service that allows you to send money abroad from a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Money can be sent to bank accounts, for cash pickup, to a Mobile Money service (sometimes called mobile wallets) and as a mobile airtime top-up.

WorldRemit offers greater convenience than traditional money transfer services that often require their customers to travel to a high-street agent.  These old-fashioned services also tend to charge higher fees.

Why would I use your service?

The internet has improved our lives in many ways.  We all know how quick and easy it is to send an email or to buy something from an online store.

WorldRemit is doing the same thing for money transfers.  Our online service is simple to use, low cost, fast and secure.

You can send money from a smartphone, tablet or computer anytime, day or night.

What services don’t you offer?

WorldRemit does not accept cash as a means of paying for your money transfer.  As an online business, it would be very difficult for you to physically get the money to us.

Also, for security reasons, it is important to know where money is coming from before it is sent abroad.  It is much harder to do this with cash. 

We do, however, offer cash collection to recipients in many countries through our trusted partners.
