The Best Thing Since Garri and Peanuts
I recently found myself having to send money abroad and it wasn’t the traditional Western Union or Money Gram type of transaction because it was understood how expensive it was becoming so I was put on to completing these request via a money transfer place but it was located in a area that was no longer easy for me and it be came harder and harder to do and the prices I was charged I felt had no real structure and it just really rubbed the wrong way. I stumbled upon this app over world remit and others like it because it used some keywords AFRICA. I was hesitant and skeptical and its been a year or if not close to it and the easy method of being able to make planned and unplanned transfers from my mobile device is beyond pleasing and easy to do. I am glad i am using the service in terms of reliability, transparency, and the major major incentive ... it’s for FREE !!!! Overall a great experience and I am sharing with everyone I know. I would definitely recommend and continue to use this amazing free service. Where the transactions are real time and you have live support who are professional and courteous. Great app for sure
I don’t know where these negative reviews are coming from; I have had the opposite experience with Wave. I’ve used it for over a year almost daily sending money to both Kenya and Uganda from the USA. I’ve never had a problem and the Customer Service is Awesome. The company is limited in the countries they serve, but for me, it works! People complaining that we provide personal and financial information need to realize that this money transfer system is highly regulated. Like a bank they are accountable and with money laundering, fraud and terrorism in these African countries, we can’t be too careful and neither can they. I want a company that handles my money to be thorough and abiding by all international and federal guidelines. I feel like WAVE is my Partner in helping me do the things I want to do in the lives of my loved ones in East Africa. I’ve saved hundreds if not thousands of dollars. You can keep Western Union or Money Gram. Their fees are outrageous! Sometimes I wonder if some of the negative comments are being posted by competitors.
Wave doesn’t actually transfer to Ghana?
I transfer money to Kenya and Nigeria with little to no problems. There are a few delays with the transfers sometimes but the money definitely gets to my friends. Now my huge problem is that I have family and friends in Ghana that I can not send money to. When I plug in all their information and hit “next” to send the money, instead of it asking me to verify my password, I get an error message that reads something along the lines that Ghana isn’t officially a country that Wave transfers to and that it was some sort of BETA Testing version. Can you clear that up and help me understand because when I finally found Wave the main reason I downloaded it was because of an advertisement I saw about sending money to Ghana without fees. Please let me know if that isn’t a valid error message and how to resolve it or if it truly was apart of the BETA version of the app, then when will we eventually be able to transfer funds to ppl Ghana? Also I believe places like Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, and Cameroon should be added 🤗 Hope we can see an expansion with the country selections very soon.
