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.

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.

They received my money and then closed my account. The money would be for my birthday's mom May 22rd, tomorrow and they said will refund it in "3 days". They are not legally. They take the money before verify the client. I am very angry.

I have just been scammed of my had earned money and this will not go down well with world remit, all I need is you either send my money to onward bank or you tell me how to get my refund, because your company advice my bank to suspend my Swedish bank account.Stop telling me that you have refunded my money to ghost bank account.

The worst service EVER! Rating NEGATIVE 5 STARS! They declined my wire transfer, then when I asked them why, they refused to tell me. I find this similar to being thrown in prison, accused of a crime, but then when you ask what crime you have committed, they refuse to tell you but they still tell you that you have to remain in prison with no knowledge of your crime. SO ASININE!

I have found Worldremit to be very dependable, people get the money with in minutes, exchange rate is excellent compared to Western Union and MoneyGram, and the fees for me are $.99 to $1.99 to send money via recipients phone to Uganda. I cant understand the slew of negative reviews received recently, One after the other,on this website. I’m wondering whether they are fake.I Wirly review anything but was looking online to see what reviews Worldremit got in was the price to see the two stars on this website. The only time I had a problem with WorldRemit releasing money to the recipient when the recipient gave me the wrong information as to his phone carrier and the name on the phone.

Worldremit is an awesome website when it come to exchange rate. Although, it took time while making first transaction due to government regulations. If you like more benefits, you can use my referral code(VISHALK127) while signing up to get $20 or quivalent in your currency once you transfer $100 or more. Also, use 'FREE' in promo code for free 1st transaction.

I am extremely happy with your service. I did a transfer on 9:30 PM from Belgium to a bank account in Malaysia. The money arrived the day after 4 PM which is less then 19 hours ! You gave a very good value 4,74 ringgit for 1 euro and as it was the first time so i didn't need to pay a commission. Next time i will be glad to pay a commission for such a nice and fast service !!! Go on with the good work. And many thanks for transferring the money so fast !
