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.

Used to work really good. Now this app is trash. Won't let me add my card details after the previous one expired, customer service won't pick when you call. They drop your call automatically. Total waste of my time.

This company is a scam! They got my money, did not remit nor refund me; I made over 6 follow-ups to resolve this and they stopped responding. I urge you to stay away from these scammers. I was even shocked to see that they are registered in the country where I sent the money but they could not share their physical address and business phone numbers. Take Care!

They will not credit the amount to sender and say the transaction got failed. Ask for refund and no refund yet. It's been a month now.

Just canceled; will never use again. And, after several uses, which were accomplished in spite of over and over trying faulty web pages, will never store credit card, need enter every time, will not take card but then charges anyway, so had two transfers one time. Oh, the best was when a transaction confirmation went to a total different recipient.... yeah, I'm done. (And sick when see all the "great" reviews, which seems typically of corporate america (and not in america, so world!). Sell adds and rate themselves I guess to inflate and change the analytics. Unreal how bad.

I tried to send money to support a school of around 200 children in rural Kenya, Africa. I have been helping them out for over ten years. I decided to try WorldRemit out to send some money. I had nothing but trouble and the money never got sent. They said they do not support charities at this time. WHAT does that mean? That’s BS. Look at their Facebook and you see tons of charity operations. Their customer service stinks. It took three days just to find that out. I strongly recommend you look elsewhere for a money transfer service.

Ive got the worst experience with World Remit. The registration process is so difficult. After e few days they reject application. When I resent, it got rejected after another few days. I decided to cancel transaction. Its been 2 weeks and they keep asking for documents after documents. Right now the refund process havent even started after 2 weeks. This is the worst remittance experience Ive had as compared to the rest! I am afraid the amount of money will never get refunded to me at all.

World Remit took over $500.00 out of my checking account without my permission after I sent a gift to an African Orphanage. They admit that it happened, but they refuse to reimburse me.
