The partnership between OPay and WorldRemit will provide Nigerians with “a fast, easy and more affordable way to receive money from over 50 countries” including the United States, United Kingdom and Canada directly into their mobile phones.

“We are very excited about our partnership with WorldRemit. At OPay, our goal is to consistently drive financial inclusion across Nigeria, meeting the demands of the banked and unbanked. With this partnership, we will smoothen the process in which Nigerians receive money from friends and family abroad,” said Kunle Olamuyiwa, Director of Remittance Service at OPay.

He added, “With our seamless technology, OPay provides Nigerians with a much more comfortable and faster option for customers to receive money in the comfort of their homes. Our 300,000 agent locations spread across the country makes cash withdrawals more convenient.”

OPay also offers customers an opportunity to save and invest their money in its ‘FlexiFixed’ service, which offers up to 12 per cent returns per annum.

The service, which launches in September 2020, is available to all OPay customers. New customers can download the Opay app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store and upgrade to ‘KYC level 2’ to access the service.

“This partnership ensures that customers can continue to make affordable money transfers to their family and friends in the comfort of their homes. Together, WorldRemit and OPay are disrupting traditional money transfer methods by delivering services that customers can access 24/7 via smartphones at their convenience.

“I’m pleased to share that we’ve reduced prices in 48 corridors and passed the savings onto our customers. With communities across the world having to change their lifestyles due to the disruption caused by COVID-19.

“We’re proud to play our part in making sure our customers can continue to support their family and friends throughout this challenging time,” said Gbenga Okejimi, WorldRemit Country Manager for Nigeria & Ghana.
