showWhat you should know about sending money to Nigeria
You’ve moved to a new country to set up a new life, work hard and send money back to family and friends in the old country. The last thing you need is to be hit with unfavourable exchange rates and high transfer fees. At Remitly, we’re proud to provide a swift, easy way for millions of people around the world to send money to their loved ones without paying over the odds. 
A few simple steps will allow you to transfer money from the UK to Nigeria through Remitly. First, sign up for a free profile. Then, tell us the amount you’re looking to send, and whether you’d like it sent immediately or within a few days. We’ll tell you the exchange rate we offer and any applicable fees, so you know exactly how much the process will cost, and how much your recipient will get in USD. 
Speaking of your recipient, we’ll also just need some information on them to ensure the money is sent to the right place. Then, you can go ahead and do it via bank transfer, or by credit or debit card. We have partnered with banks in Nigeria including GT Bank and Polaris Bank, making the process simple. You can also opt for the person receiving the money to stay updated on the transfer by SMS or WhatsApp, so they know when it’s all done.

showHow can recipients pick up the money in Nigeria?
Not only can you select the speed of transfer to suit you, with no transfer fees charged to your recipients by Remitly, but you also have a choice of options when it comes to how your money is received. You can transfer directly to one of the banks we partner with in Nigeria, if your recipient would simply like to have the money placed directly into their account. Alternatively, a cash pickup option is available. In this instance, your recipient can pick the money up in person at a designated pickup point, by showing a reference number and ID. Perfect if they don’t have a bank account, or just need to have the funds in cash form immediately.
