Why Sending Money Online Makes Sense

Traditionally, sending money to the Horn of Africa involved visiting a money transfer agent, which is often an internet café or a small convenience store, completing a registration form, providing identification documents, and handing over cash to the agent.

As most customers don't live very close to agents they are often forced to take time off work and incur travel costs going to and from an agent location. Not only is this inconvenient but it can be expensive, especially if you only want to send a small amount. The average transfer is less than $100 so travel costs can often come to 20% of the amount you send. This does not make sense. There must be a better way!

In emergencies when a you receives a call from a family member who needs money for an urgent medical treatment, often either the sending agent or the payout location is closed and the beneficiary may not get the money for up two days.
