Does what it says cannot fault. I have now sent money on several occasions to both Barbados and The Gambia never had a problem and always works perfectly fine. I once got a name wrong because I was unaware the recipient had a middle name on their government issue ID, this was easy to resolve with a single phone call during which the name was altered. The App is very simple to use and I highly recommend as a means of sending money when you need quick result, I also receive notification when the funds have been collected.
I have sent money to three people from UK to Romania. For the first two I had to put the surname into the first name and vice-versa because they said the name was wrong. So I have thought "fair enough" at least I know how to do it now, but guess what!? When I've sent money to the 3th person, again the same issue but this time they wanted to put the name in normally, at the end of the day is just a matter of luck if the person you are sending money to, will be able to actually pick the money up. My advice is to not use the app because the system is confused and you end up losing a lot of time because you can't just change the name, you have to call and get your money refunded (takes up to 5 working days) and them resend the money again (also losing the transaction money).
I resisted using app until I had no choice - was quite happy to send money by phone. Now I prefer app as it’s so quick and it stores people’s names and it’s easy to inform the receiver that the money’s been sent. A bit of a pain to have to verify I.d. but once I’d stopped procrastinating it took minutes to send a photo of I.d. and get authorised and now I’m all set up. Although it says bank transfer or credit card it should say credit/debit as I always use a debit card with no problem
