WorldRemit’s Technology Supports Customers During COVID-19

Toronto Global client, WorldRemit, makes sending money as simple as sending a text message. Customers work hard for their money, so they’re making transactions quicker and easier. WorldRemit works to get customers’ money to those who need it quickly, securely, and at low cost.

Families are at the heart of everything at WorldRemit. At times like these, when families are separated and have loved ones located around the world, distances can feel greater than before. With travel bans, border closures, and economic shutdowns, anxieties are on the rise, and people worry about the safety and stability of their family members overseas.  WorldRemit is working to ease the impact caused by COVID-19, and offering its support to ensure families can share resources with their loved ones quickly and efficiently.

Globally, there are severe restrictions on movement and WorldRemit understands that people, now more than ever, need to send money back home to support their families and friends. They also understand that people need digital options that allow them to send money from the safety of their homes. Customers that would traditionally have to visit a brick and mortar location to send money can now #stayhome and leverage the WorldRemit Mobile App, or visit them online.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, digital money transfer services are proving to be more convenient than ever before. Customers across Canada and around the world are choosing WorldRemit as their trusted money transfer service.

“WorldRemit was there for us when other services could not be. When my family in the Philippines was unable to access other services for receiving desperately needed financial support from me due to COVID-19 lockdowns, WorldRemit got the money to them locally, instantly and without problems,” said WorldRemit customer, Marc.

Tracy, another WorldRemit client, said, “This is my first time using your service and I am so impressed. I wanted to get some money to my friend in Cambodia quickly. He has no bank account, no work and no money to feed his family due to COVID-19. Within an hour of discovering WorldRemit, my friend was at the bank in Siem Reap picking up the cash.”

With mandatory stay-at-home measures in place across Canada, a cashless model on the sending side makes people more secure and safer from a personal health perspective – a top priority for all of WorldRemit customers around the world.

Hard-working immigrants around the world need these safer digital options more than ever to continue to support their families in these difficult times.”
