How does it work for the recipient in Nigeria?

To receive money, the recipient must present the cash pickup code and valid photo ID at either Fidelity or GT Bank branches across Nigeria.

You can transfer Australian dollars and the recipient will get US dollars. You can transfer US dollars only in multiples of ten example:  USD 30, USD 40, USD 50 etc…

As soon as your transaction has been processed the recipient will receive an SMS to let them know they can collect it straight away.  The money is safe because it’s protected by a confidential access code.

Your family members can use the money in the way it will help them most. The first time the beneficiary will be asked to fill out a form at the pickup location, with some basic details like:

– Recipient’s name

– Recipient’s address

– Sender’s name

– Send Country

As soon as your transaction has been processed the recipient will receive an SMS to let them know they can use it straight away. There’s no need for your family or friends to hurry to withdraw or use the money as it will be safely stored. The money is safe in the phone because it’s protected by a confidential code.
