Pricing : How much does Azimo cost?

8 /10

As one of the major online transferring platforms across the world, Azimo offers better exchange rates than many of the banks. It keeps updating the exchange rates as per market fluctuations and aligns to global markets. You can check the exchange rate and fees while processing the transfer after entering all the necessary details.

However, the fee which you have to pay depends on various factors such as the currency you wish to pay in, the transfer amount, the payment method, and the transfer method.

The first two transfers from Azimo are free and after that, the company charges minimum £1, but the exact amount can vary which based on the following things:

  1. Where you are sending the money, i.e., to and from
  2. Method of sending the money: online bank transfer or debit/credit card

However, it is offering lower rates than many of its competitors and banks.

Transparency: Does Azimo have any hidden fees?

10 /10

Azimo is very much transparent with its fees and exchange rate. There are no hidden fees when you send money on Azimo. The exchange rate will get locked once the customer starts his transaction. At the same time, it will also provide the transfer fees when you select the way of transfer. So, you will be able to see the whole updated amount you have to pay for the transfer clearly on the screen, and you have not to pay a single penny more.

After the completion of the transaction, it also provides the time the funds will be going to take to the recipient. Most of its transfer takes place instantly or in 1-2 working days, depending on the banks and country you are sending money. It also provides the email confirmation of the transfer to its customers.

Transfer Speed: How long does it take to send money through Azimo?

8/10

The transfer speed of Azimo depends on various factors such as the country you are sending money to, the way of transfer and working hours of the country. So, one should note that it may take 1-3 working days for the company to transfer the funds. It also does not transfer the funds on public holidays and weekends. Sometimes, the processing times can vary slightly depending on reasons such as market conditions, time differences, and added security checks. Some of the examples of processing time in various countries are provided below:

Security : Is Azimo Safe?

10/10

Privacy is one of the significant things that one afraid of when they are transacting online, and it is more important is the age of cyber crimes. So, you should be happy to know that Azimo scans its systems 24/7 to detect any unusual activity. It uses high levels of encryption to keep the transmission of data secure. Azimo mobile apps and website uses Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode to make sure it processes legitimate orders.

Besides this, the company has been authorised with the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It has been regulated and licensed by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC). So, by using the best technical and human resources, it is saving the data of its clients. We believe that it has been providing enough security to protect the data of customers and hence, it deserves 10 out of 10.

User experience of Azimo

7/10

Azimo is one of the best money remittance companies, but it does not provide over-the-phone assistance to its customers. This needs improvement as people only can send a message to the company regarding their issues and there is no other way to contact them. Besides this, Azimo money remittance is a highly responsive website as you will get the exchange rates and service fee in zero clicks, once you enter the details. It has also provided its mobile apps which are highly secured. You can download Azimo app here (Android App and iOS App). You need not to login to Azimo for knowing the exchange rates and service fee. You can check all the details of transfer without signing up or login.

Users can send money through the bank account, SWIFT payment, MasterCard, Visa debit and credit cards. The company is also providing the services of cash pick-ups and airtime top-ups. However, those who hold crypto currencies, money market securities and any other card could not use the services of Azimo.

So, as per user experience, we rate 7 out of 10 to Azimo money transfer customer services and user experience. We would have given higher ratings to the company, but its customers are not enough satisfied with its assistance services and payment modes.

Terrible experience

Review published ago

I send money through Azimo since on the 15/04/19 up till now the recipient hasn't received the cash in the account yet. Azimo send me an update the next day that the money has been delivered to the account but still the money isnt in yet. I emailed Azimo 3 days later, up till now I still haven't received any reply from them or contact yet. I am very upset as the purpose of the money wasn't been able to be used for. A friend recommended me to Azimo, but so far, it's a terrible experience, and would never recommend anyone to this company.

Review published ago

Your services are very poor and does not meet business standards. I believe you have a bunch of people with no business skill. You need to understand that there is competition everywhere and for someone to patronize you, you have to be good .l mean very good which you are not. First of all you cannot be contacted when there's an issue.How can l be sending money through people l cannt reach. The last time l sent 50 pounds , you took 5 pounds as commission without any warning. I do not trust you. I sent money home this Easter but wouldn't use u again . It is very stressful. This is UK and not third world country.
