Ideal Experience

Review published ago

I had an ideal experience with this company. They were fast, easy, and did exactly what they promised to do. Their customer service was prompt and helpful. I transferred money from a debit card in the US to a bank account in Bolivia and everything went down without a hitch. I definitely recommend to anyone trying to transfer money internationally. Thank you, WorldRemit.

Honestly , the best remittance service among the peers. The transfer through debit/credit card is quite fast and I use this service during urgency. Though, I would appreciate if there are any Amazon gift cards/ promotions for frequent users. I'm highly satisfied with the service.
