If you have ever known the frustration of sending money abroad you might want to read this post. Finding competitive rates can be a bit of a challenge both for you and the recipient.
So I went online today in search of the best online international money transfer services as I lived quite away from the high streets where it could be done. I half expected not to get any trustworthy ones, but I was in for a pleasant surprise as I found a few.
Previous to my discovery I had used Sendwave, which was quick and efficient and using the code available at the time an additional £5 was added to my transfer amount. However, Sendwave was trading ₦497 to the £1 and to me that was far too low compared to the high street rate of ₦602 to the £1.
Today, I decided to do an online search and was pleasantly surprised to find two that were showing ₦502 (from Rewire) and ₦577 (from Azimo) to the £1 which is clearly a far better deal than what I had previously gotten.
As my intention was to get the best deal for my money I went with the higher one from Azimo.
All I had to do was namely:-
- Download the app to my phone;
- Register for a free account;
- Enter my name and address;
- Enter the recipient’s details – name and bank details;
- Select my form of payment i.e debit or credit card;
- Confirm and send the amount.
Then to my pleasant surprise again, I received an email confirming my transaction and an offer to invite others to send money with Azimo for a benefit.
I also did not have to pay a fee for my first transfer and the second will be free also.
They are currently offering £20 (it will vary in your currency) off your first transfer when you register with Azimo using this link here: Money Off Your First Transfer
If you refer a business owner to Azimo Business using the same link and you’ll receive £75 (you will have had to register and transfer money yourself first). This is why in my opinion this service qualifies as the best international money transfer service right now.
I invite you to check it out and spread the word.
