Fast and efficient.

published

Thank you for providing a fast service. Friday I sent money from Australia to a Vietnamese bank account, I was expecting it to arrive on Monday or maybe Tuesday. I was stunned when it was in their bank account within 4 hours, thank you or providing a service so fast.

Has worked for cash pick up only

published

For the past 3 years i have ben sending money to South Amerca using the 'cash pick up' service afiliated to approved agencies by legit banks .. no dramas , got a quick confirmation and best forex rates than the ones offered by banks through a swift transfer. But I dont think the app is reliable when making a direct transfer to a bank account overseas hence the many bad reviews for that service..pity this is the time when it is needed the most !

Reliable and trustworthy

published

We have been using World Remit to send money to the Philippines and Bolivia since January 2019 and have been very happy with their service. Others may have slightly better transfer rates but at least with World Remit I am confident the money will arrive safely.

Money Refunded

published

Update: The money from my cancelled transactions has been refunded. It seems like they were having problems with Poly but the money has reached my account today.

Customer service operator over the phone was helpful following up.

Yes, it is still ongoing. Customer No:WR6657998.

No one at worldremit would give me an answer as to when my money will be refunded. Worldremit cancelled the transaction and after 9 working days no one is still able to tell me when I'll get my money back.

Customer service says they need to contact their finance department and that they will contact me but they havent. Its really sad how this company plays around with their customers.

Simply the Best!

published

I have been using World Remit to transfer money to India for over three years. There has never been an instance when we have encountered any kind of problem. It has just gotten better over the years. A year or two ago, the money transferred took at least half a day to reach the recipients bank account. Now, it reaches within minutes. Whats even better is that all of this comes at a very small commission paid. I strongly recommend World Remit for a quick, safe and convenient method of money transfer.

Odd inconsistencies

published

We send money to some of my wife's relatives in Colombia. It is normally available on the same day. Now two of the payments have taken over a week to process and two were available the same day: all were to the same bank, from the same bank, and each for the same amount. There seems no logical explanation for this. On previous occasions, to the same accounts and for the same amounts, there had been no delays.

That does not explain it. Each transfer was to the same bank and same type of account on the same day.

Fast money transfer

published

Money transfer straight to account in within 15 minutes. First transaction would take 1 day but after that everything smooth, just select account and transfer money. Exchange rate is best.

Good for me - All these negative reviews are hard to believe

published

For me, good service, fast and effective transfer. Customer service even rang me to suggest a more secure transaction route than I had initiated.
Difficult to believe the incredible split of reviews. It’s either the best ever or the worst ever depending on who you believe and which review site you are using. That makes me suspicious - not of WorldRemit but of the reviewers!
