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 use the blue box on this page 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).
