How do I pay for my transfer?

WorldRemit does not accept cash as a means of paying for your money transfer.

As an online business, it would be very difficult for you to physically get the money to us.
Also, for security reasons, it is important to know where money is coming from before it is sent abroad.
It is much harder to do this with cash.

Debit & credit card

You can pay for your money transfer through WorldRemit using a debit or
credit card in any of the countries where our service is available.

WorldRemit accepts Visa, Mastercard and Maestro.  When paying with a credit card you
may be charged a cash advance fee so please check with your card provider.

Bank account payment services

In several countries, WorldRemit has partnered with respected, well-established online payment
services. Barclays Pingit, SOFORT, POLI, iDeal and Interac all connect directly to your internet
banking service to offer fast, secure payments.

Instructions for using each method are provided during the payment stage of the transfer.

Your transfer will commence once WorldRemit has received the payment.

The maximum amount you can send may be lower for some countries.

Financial markets over the past year have been defined by diverging monetary policy settings with shifting rate expectations changing the dynamic of broader forex markets. Having initially traded up above the 94 US Cents mark as recently as September the Australian dollar has now lost more than 15 percent over the past four months a shift made even more notable given its been more than three years since the Australian dollar hit its all-time high of 1.10 in August 2011.

With its weakness being driven mainly by a strengthening US dollar, investors are no longer tying macro developments directly to their implications for QE. Looking ahead over the coming year an eventual tightening of policy by the US Federal Reserve during the first half is expected, a move which should ensure the upward trajectory of the US dollar is maintained.

Keeping in mind the key theme remains Greenback (US Dollar) strength; significant falls across broader commodity prices, softer growth indicators from China as well as a relatively dovish domestic outlook have also played their part.

Looking ahead over the coming 12 months, more of the same is likely with higher rates of return available offshore reducing the attractiveness of the Australian dollar, as a result heightening the risks of a further depreciation.
