The WorldRemit Wallet - How it works

The WorldRemit Wallet is a safe and secure account that allows you to send, receive, store and withdraw money from the WorldRemit app. At present it’s available on Android smartphones within in Somaliland, and we’ll be introducing it to other countries in the near future.

It’s so easy and secure to use.

Here’s how to send:

  2. Select the WorldRemit Wallet as your service on the calculator
  3. Choose how much you want to send

  5. Pay for your transfer. Both you and the person you’re sending to will get notifications by SMS and email when your money is received

You can send to someone who hasn’t yet signed up to the WorldRemit Wallet, and we’ll send them an SMS explaining how to receive it. The WorldRemit Wallet is currently only available on Android, so please only send to family and friends who have an Android smartphone.
