Cash Pick-up added as a receiving method in Nigeria!
We’ve got some good news if you regularly send money to Nigeria!
With technology constantly evolving, it's easy to forget that some people still choose to manage their money the old-fashioned way - in cash rather than digitally.
You may be an expert on mobile or online banking to send and receive money as a Paysend customer, but the people you transfer money to may not!
Many people all over the world still choose to receive money by visiting a money transfer location or bank to retrieve cash. To help those people out we've added cash Pick-up as an alternative option for recipients in Nigeria ensuring that our customers are allowed even more flexibility when receiving or moving their money.
