If you’re trying to send money to your family from Canada, or the United Kingdom or you simply want to transfer some funds to your bank account back home to pay off a bill, you need to be able to do this at the best rates possible. Despite the existence of so many banks, directly transferring money overseas from your bank account is not a great option when sending money internationally. Here’s why;

  • Most banks charge large transfer fees that vary depending on the amount you’re sending —these happen because they sometimes have to rely on 3rd party remittance apps.
  • When you’re sending money internationally with banks, the delivery period often goes as high as 6 business days before the money gets to the recipient.
  • Additional deposit costs also come and sometimes you don’t know about this until deductions happen.

So how do you send money abroad with the best rates, with the needed speed and at no cost to you? We’ve helped make this easy for you.

  3. Click on the send button on the home page and select International Transfers.
  4. Choose the currency you’re sending from (any of the wallets you’ve created) and the currency they will receive in (over 40 countries available to choose from)
  5. Fund the wallet you’re sending from and confirm your receiver’s bank details.
  6. Send the money. It delivers instantly. Free of Charge!
  7. Pesa will send you confirmation of your money being delivered to the recipient’s account.
