How it works: Cash pickup
Send cash for pickup in an instant
If the people you care for thousands of miles away need money, then send them a cash pickup online with WorldRemit. It’s so easy – you can do it on your laptop or mobile.
Money can be picked up almost instantly in most countries from numerous cash pickup locations*.
We send over 170,000 cash pickup transfers worldwide every month. But remember, cash pickup is just one of four ways of sending with WorldRemit.
Here’s how it works
Simply visit our homepage and then:
Select country you want to send to
Select how you want to send
Enter the amount you want to send – our low fees and exchange rate will be clearly shown
Then, you'll be directed to another page to:
Create an account if you don't have one (you will be asked for your address, email, phone number)
Enter your recipient's details – choose from a list of people you’ve already sent to, or add a new person by entering their details: full name (exactly as it appears on their ID), phone number, address and email (optional)
Pay. Choose how you want to pay – bank account, debit/credit card, SOFORT, INTERAC, POLI or iDEAL (web) – then confirm the amount.
* To see where these locations are in the country you’re sending to, simply select that country in the blue box on this page, then and scroll down to cash pickup.
What recipients need to show when collecting funds
Identification. This must be a government issued ID, such as a passport or driving licence.
Transaction reference number. When collecting funds your recipient should give their name and this number, which they will have received by SMS (and in some cases email as well).
A choice of ways to send money
If cash pickup is not available in the country you want to send to, there are other ways to send with WorldRemit, including:
Mobile money: an electronic wallet service that lets users store, send and receive money using their mobile phone. Find out more
Bank deposit: send money directly to your recipient’s bank account. Find out more.
Airtime top-up: send an airtime top-up to add talk-time or data allowance to your recipient’s mobile phone. Find out more.
