This company is a hybrid of PayPal and Western Union! It is easy to use and you don't have leave home to use it. It offers options: Bank Deposit and PickUp at locations across the world. I would recommend it! Better option than PayPal for sure. And less hassles, which is what we all want. I am glad I have found this great service. :)” Henrik Nielsen on Friday, September 29, 2017

“I was skeptical at first and very slow to switch from Western Union (also used Moneygram a couple of times), but decided to make the jump after checking out the reviews. The service is so much better!! Worldremit makes things easier and the exchange rates are better (for now at least). When sending a larger amount, the checks are reasonable and the turnaround is relatively quick. Western Union better shape up!” – Alice on Friday, November 17, 2017

As of today , november 18 2017, Worldremit is the fastest,most reliable , safest and most affordable way to transfer money to my home country.Unless anything changes, I am sold , I will never go back to any other money transfer services. Sending money to my family overseas.I used a few companies, and compare more than one points. To be honest I was a bit sceptic about worldRemit,now it's the only one I use. I send the money now and my wife gets the text instantly, she can pick it up straight away, and the fee you pay is the lowest on the market. Wit the other ones the have higher fee and usually the receiver is waiting for half a hour. So now I only use worldRemit, highly recommended.” – Joan on  Wednesday, November 22, 2017


Base of my experienced, my email got hacked with some stupid person,he/she have access to my email. So I asked the costumer service right away to change my email address before the hacker will change my password. And they replied me and they deactivated my account right away while they are fixing my problem. And the next day I can log in to my worldremit account again to another email. Thank you so much Worldremit. God bless to your service.” – Bepster on Thursday, November 23, 2017


My daughter's debit card swallowed by ATM in Thailand.World Remit enabled me to send funds within minutes.Simple transaction on their easily navigable website.” – Rfonarse on Friday, November 24, 2017


There was an error in the bank details and the money transfer did not get to the receiver, Immediately a message was sent to alert me of the error and asked me to rectify or cancel the transfer.
I rectified and a number was allotted to my request. I called the customer services with the number given and within 3 minutes the situation was saved and I got an alert to that effect.
I recomend world remit, they are very effective and trusted too.

10. What is their origin story?
WorldRemit's founder Ismail Ahmed first saw the opportunity to improve money transfers while at university.  Studying in London, he needed to send money to family members in Africa.  Every transaction meant an epic journey across the city to an agent who charged a small fortune in fees to send modest amounts of money.
It seemed wrong to Ismail that an industry handling billions of dollars every year should deliver such poor service to its customers. Even then, he knew that change was needed.
Over the coming years, Ismail worked with a number of remittance businesses as well as international policy makers.
As an advisor to the United Nations, he helped companies comply with tough new money transfer regulations, introduced after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In 2010, Ismail decided that the time and technology were right to shake-up this stagnant industry and he founded WorldRemit.
