WorldRemit is really fantastic. Whenever I transfer some amount of money through it, both the collector and myself get notification on for reference numbers and it is quick, easy and not time consuming when collecting cash with no problem and I as sender lastly gets both sms and email advising the cash is collected. It doesn't charge a lot or none transfer fees. This is terrific. I urge you to please use WorldRemit from now on. It also sends Airtime, that is excellent. Regards. Simon Duol.
