When registering with us, you can choose between two types of accounts. The first account requires Light Registration and will allow you to send up to £600 a month. All we need from you is your basic information, including name, mobile number, and Identity Number. The second account type entails Full Registration, which allows transfers of between £600 and £4 000 a month. This registration requires proof of identity and proof of address.

Step 3: Send Cash for Collection

Once your account is set up, you can send cash for collection right away. All you have to do is enter your amount, let us know who your recipient is, and to which of our serviced countries you will be transferring cash. This can all be done online and does not entail anything more than entering a few details.

Step 4: Your Recipient Receives Their Money

We have thousands of cash collection points across Africa. Your recipient can visit any of our payout partners within our network and get their money, no fuss. To do this, they will need to present a reference number sent via SMS, as well as an Identity Document that matches the details provided by you, the sender.
