Leading online money transfer service WorldRemit (https://www.WorldRemit.com/en) is introducing new app features to make it easier for remittance recipients in several countries, including Cameroon, to manage funds sent from loved ones overseas.
Remittance receivers in several countries, including Cameroon, can now create and access a remote WorldRemit account to:
The new app features are completely free of charge and give WorldRemit money transfer recipients full control over when and how to withdraw their remittances.
Approximately 65% of adults in Cameroon remain (https://bit.ly/31GBxVF) unbanked, and customers do not need a bank account to access the full range of services available remotely for money transfer receivers through the WorldRemit app.
WorldRemit first launched its online money transfer service to Cameroon in 2012, and transfers to the country have been growing by over 90% year-over-year. Using the WorldRemit app or website, the diaspora community can send money home in a few taps from their phone, without having to pay expensive fees at a money transfer agent.
Andrew Stewart, Managing Director for Middle East and Africa at WorldRemit, said: “Cameroon is one of our top ten remittance receiving countries globally, so we are delighted to make it even easier for money transfer recipients in the country to manage their funds.
“Previously, only senders of WorldRemit transfers could select whether their money was received by bank deposit, collection as cash or mobile money transfer. The new service gives receivers with or without a bank account full control over how they manage their remittances, enabling them to store funds in a remote account in multiple currencies, send money to other WorldRemit users in the same country, or withdraw their funds at any time via any of our convenient pay-out methods.”
