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.
