How to send money from Nigeria to USA ✈️
The fast and affordable way to send money to the US from Nigeria.
Have you ever had to go through the stress that comes with trying to send money abroad? If you’re anything like me, you must wonder time and again why sending your own money has to be so hectic.
Every year, millions of Nigerians receive money from abroad for business and from family and friends. Despite the pandemic, in the third quarter of 2020, remittances to Nigeria rose to $3.8 billion, up from $3.3 billion in the previous quarter.
Fortunately, as the demand for fast, affordable transfers has risen, there have been major improvements to how Nigerians receive money from abroad. For instance, with Sendcash, you can send money to Nigeria from anywhere in the world within a few minutes, right from your mobile phone.
Since its launch in April 2020, it has processed thousands of transactions and has received amazing reviews. A particularly striking one was someone who was able to use Sendcash to send money to a family member within minutes.
However, sending money out of Nigeria to other countries, particularly the US, is still not as easy. Currently, when people have to pay for tuition, send money to loved ones in the US or pay business partners, they need to walk into a bank, stay in a queue, fill several forms and pay high fees.
To significantly improve this lengthy process, Sendcash recently expanded to provide this service to enable individuals and businesses in Nigeria to send money to the US from Nigeria, right from their mobile phones.
Sendcash offers affordable rates and a transaction fulfilment time of one business day, and the recipient will receive the money directly in their US bank account.
Here’s how to send money from Nigeria to the US with 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Visit www.sendcash.africa
Tap on the “Destination” drop-down to change it to the United States and tap on “Send cash”. You’ll be directed to either login or register after doing that.
Sign in with your Buycoins/Sendcash email and password if you already have a Sendcash or Buycoins account. If you don’t, you’ll need to create a new account and provide an email address, a password, and a username.
You’ll be redirected to “Start” your transfer once you’ve successfully signed in.
Step 2: Enter your transfer details: Enter the dollar amount you want to send and the details of the recipient you want to send it to. If you haven’t already added a recipient, click the “Add a recipient” button to fill out their wire transfer details. There’s a flat transaction fee of $40
Step 3: Click Send:
You’ll get a message about the status of your transaction once you click send.
Once the transfer has been completed, you’ll receive an email notification. If you experience any issue at all during this process, you can reach out to the Sendcash support team at email@example.com.
