Join our growing money transfer agent network
After an unimaginably difficult few months, there are signs that things are looking up for global remittances.
Reuters recently reported that remittances to Pakistan reached a single month high in July, rising to the equivalent of $2.768bn (a 36.5% year-on-year increase). Here in the UK, the government has partnered with Switzerland to launch an appeal to mitigate any decline in remittances to low-income countries due to the impact of Covid-19.
By bringing much of daily life to a halt, the pandemic has led to the increased use of digital money transfer options. Now though, with lockdown easing and branches and agents open once again, people who prefer the reassurance of a face-to-face transaction and find it easier to deal with physical cash can once again send money in person.
This desire has been reflected in the renewed attraction of our agent network, making it an ideal time to join the Small World family. Do you want to find out what it means for our customers to be able to send money home easily and efficiently through the existing agent network? Have a read of our recent article where we talk to customers about his very topic.
What is a money transfer agent?
Agents are businesses who provide money transfer services alongside their primary offerings. For example, you could be a newsagent, grocery store, hairdresser or even a café, and, by partnering with someone like Small World, your customers are able to send money internationally through your shop or premises.
This is good news for your business, your customers and those receiving money all around the world.
Using an agent, customers can send money to be collected in person or digitally as a bank deposit, making it a flexible option suited to the needs of all recipients.
The Small World agent network
Our aim is to provide money transfer services to as many as people as possible which is why, with shops and businesses in the UK continuing to open up, we are expanding our network of money transfer agents.
With more agents, it will be even more convenient for people in the UK to send money to their friends and family – making the world a smaller place and bringing financial inclusion to those who are currently outside of the banking system.
