WorldRemit, the leading online money transfer business, has now launched its service in Australia. The service enables migrants to send money to family and friends back home using debit cards, credit cards and POLi.
WorldRemit's online money transfer service offers compelling benefits to hard-working migrants who on average spend more than an hour travelling to and from agent locations or bank branches to send small regular transfers.
Traditionally migrants used to send money home through agent locations which meant withdrawing cash from a bank, taking time off to visit an agent and queuing up to hand over cash. In some cases the travel costs of those who don't live near agent locations were more than the amount they send.
Now customers can send money from the privacy and convenience of their own home or office without the need to queue up at an agent location or bank branch.
"With fees from $4.99 and 24/7 availability, the new service offers unprecedented convenience and competitive pricing," said Ismail Ahmed, CEO of WorldRemit.
WorldRemit is an award-winning online platform enabling migrants to send remittances to family and friends in more than 100 countries using a variety of payment options including debit cards, credit cards and local payment methods. The service offers the most extensive range of pay-out options including instant cash pickup, bank deposits, transfers to mobile wallets, door-to-door delivery and airtime top-up.
