Send money any time, in no time - Azimo launches near-instant transfers to Nigeria


Money transfers can now reach recipients in Nigeria in minutes even at weekends

London December 14th, 2017 - Digital money transfer company Azimo is shaking up the Nigerian market with 24/7 money transfers.

In a transformation for Azimo’s Nigerian market, this rapid service ensures that money sent from any of 22 European countries will usually reach recipients within 30 minutes even at weekends*, making Azimo the fastest and most convenient money transfer service on the market.

People sending money to Nigeria have often had to accept slow services and long delivery times. With 64% of transfers to the country sent for family support - including to pay for hospital and food bills - a speedy service every day of the week is essential.

Azimo enables fast and safe pay-outs to accounts at all of Nigeria’s major banks.

Azimo’s innovative digital platform makes it substantially cheaper than traditional brick-and-mortar money transfer services.

Nwankwo Kanu, Azimo’s brand ambassador and Nigerian footballing legend, has personal experience of the importance of moving money quickly. “Speed and convenience is key. When you send money to loved ones, you want it to arrive super-fast and know that it can be received easily and at any time. That’s why Azimo’s 24/7 service is the best out there.”
