EDITORIAL REVIEW

WorldRemit is an online service for sending money abroad conveniently and at a low cost. Created as an alternative to traditional money transfer companies, WorldRemit brings a more convenient and innovative remittance platform to clients worldwide with computer, smartphone, and tablet friendly accessibility. It offers low transfer fees, no minimum transfer amounts, and guaranteed exchange rates for a better way to send money overseas.

WorldRemit allows users to send money from 50 countries worldwide to over 110 countries, and plans to expand its destination options. Clients can choose from multiple methods to send money overseas, including bank deposit, cash pick-up, Mobile Money, or airtime top-up. With any option and any device, the transfer procedure is designed to be simple; users simply choose their country, include the recipient details, and send their desired amount. Depending on the chosen transfer method, transactions are usually processed immediately and transfers received instantly.

WorldRemit CEO Ismail Ahmed founded the company in 2010 in London while attending college. He first handedly experienced the complicated and expensive remittance process when sending money to family back in Africa, and as a result created WorldRemit as a platform that would improve the process of transferring money abroad. As a response to the lengthy paperwork and high transfer fees Ahmed endured as a money sender, WorldRemit offers convenient payment methods, instant transactions, competitive exchange rates, and low transfer fees. 

The money transfer company has since gained global success, with over $100 million in funding received from renowned investment corporations Accel Partners and Technology Crossover Ventures. WorldRemit plans to expand its services to additional countries and develop more innovative ways to simplify remittance for users around the world.

Terrible, they disabled my account because I used my 25€ voucher and I have lost it. I called them but there is no change to get the reason, they just say I don't meet the criteria in accordance with the terms and conditions (I meet the criteria). THEY JUST DON'T EANT ME TO USE THE 25€ VOUCHER!!!

I have been with world remit for a few years they had given me great service until February this year 2020 when I sent money which they delayed sending until I send prove of address Identification and source of income. I would have to expected a prewarning that they won’t do any transactions for me until l send the documents, which would have been polite enough than holding money. Well I did send the documents and they told me all was fine and l can continue using them. I haven’t used them for three months until early this month of June 2020. I phoned customer service to make sure all documents were in place and l was told all was ok. On the 5th June 2020 made a transaction at 10.30 am normally gets to the same day or early next day.when l phoned l was told they needed same documents they asked for in February. On the phone which l had to wait for more than 30 minutes they confirmed documents are there and that was a mistake,was reassured Money transfer Was to be effected lmmediately. As l write being 9th June 2020 evening no transfer has been done yet, attempt to sort problem on phone l was told the matter is with the complaince team which are not reachable by phone only via email which they respond 24hrs to seven working days. I have even asked for cancellation and refund but l am told l have to wait for email. Right now l am very frustrated being treated as if am begging for my money yet they were supposed to render the service. I Am VERY VERY UPSET Watch out World Remit!! Wonder what they are up to

I hate the fact they check mark Cash Pick Up, They should let the customer choose preferred transfer mode. I have used their option when not paying sufficient attention.

It's a scam. They just took £410 pounds from me. I lost my money and the customer service is unprofessional who don't know what they talking about. If your a lucky enough to get through to them then you will realise they They are just covering up to convince you that your money is gone. My transaction shows that it's ready for collection but it cant be found anywhere in any bank. It's gone Please Avoid and never ever use it. Scam

I have used World Remit since he came into existence and used to be very good then, but of late their website doesn't work, Customer services is the worse ever I have know, you have to wait for 2 hrs on phone to be attended to if you are lucky. Their Apps doesn't work, it freezes. They are JUNK!

They shut down my account WITHOUT NOTICE and I am NEVER allowed to re-open it. I have been using them for months, and they offer NO explanation as to why my account was shut down and they did not offer me any way to talk to ANYONE about it. I understand they have security needs, but there was no way for me to authenticate myself. This is incredibly frustrating. This number is for the last transaction that I was able to make WITH MY OWN MONEY. I used to hold them in high regard, now I will never recommend them to anyone.

this is a borderline scam, falling behind we are regulated so we can't give you a reason why we took your money and banned your account. WorldRemit pay the money you owe me. then apologize for for your pathetic service. really your a joke of a company.

SCAM..AVOID!!!! YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR MONEY Transaction number :51497304. Please do not trust this company, they will hold your funds and never reimburse you. I have corresponded them innumerable times regarding my refund as they did not transfer the funds to the recipient. To my utter dismay, they are disregarding my emails and they purposely keep terminating the line connection when enquiring about the refund over the phone or come up with utterly absurd excuses as to how their local partners are holding the funds and technical issues are affecting the refund process..absolutely atrocious!. They claim that they refund will be processed within 7 working days, however I have been hearing different time frames from various customer representative, they are evidently lying as they do not intend to refund the money. If you are in the same situation as me then please take immediate action, I'm just about to report this to the action fraud police and my bank. There is no other way to get this resolved. I urge you to not use this transfer service, it's a scam.

0 stars This is a scam. They take your money first, then claim you do not meet requirements to be a customer. When asked about what's lacking they claim they are legally prohibited from telling you. This is a great way for them to hold on to your money for 2-3 days. They scam a few hundred people a day for a few hundred dollars each, and wham! all of a sudden it's real money. How stupid is a company that takes your money first and then "checks your application"? Quite stupid, in fact, because people that have been stung like I was will never, ever use this company. I have an elderly uncle that just moved from U.S. to Mexico to retire, and his family here in the U.S. will definitely NOT use this crappy company to send him money. Somebody else will reap the benefits, definitely not WorldRemit. You'd think they'd be smart enough to "check the application" first before submitting withdraw request to your bank or credit card account. If they're legit, they would reduce their pissed-off customer count to zero by using simple logic. But, nooooo, they put a claim on your money first, then "check your application". That's a scam. Fúck them all to hell.
