Rhode Island residents can now send money overseas through WorldRemit
New, secure way to send money from Rhode Island directly from mobile phones
WorldRemit, one of the fastest-growing global digital remittances services, today announced that Rhode Island residents can now securely send money overseas via its mobile app. WorldRemit is available in the United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
WorldRemit is a valuable service for immigrants in the U.S. as it allows them to send money instantly to people in over 125 countries, directly from their phones. Of Rhode Island’s million residents, over 13% are foreign-born. Whereas previously, these consumers had to visit money transfer agents, WorldRemit users can quickly and easily use their mobile phones to send money home to their loved ones.
“Immigrants living in Rhode Island didn’t have many options available to them when it comes to sending money overseas,” comments Brion Nazzaro, Director at WorldRemit Corp. “They’d have to stand in long lines at money transfer agents and pay unnecessary fees just to send hard-earned dollars back home to their friends and families. At WorldRemit, we’re solving that problem by giving people the ability to instantly, securely and easily transfer money from their phones.”
Rhode Island residents can send transfers to be received in four convenient ways:
- Instant bank transfer
- Mobile Money transfer
- Cash pick-up
- Mobile airtime top-up
WorldRemit customers already send more than 500,000 transfers around the world every month. The service is available to send money from 50 countries including the United States, to more than 125 receiving destinations.
