Money transfers in Kosovo

Digital finance has become a part of daily life for many people living in Kosovo. Through online money transfer services, like Small World, people in Prishtina all the way to Gjakova and Ferizaj have been able to increase their easy access to quick finances.

This rise in accessibility is not just limited to the tech-savvy youth, the increase in remittances suggest that all kinds of people are benefitting from money transfers to Kosovo. Remittances to Kosovo in July 2021 were around 102.50 EUR Million and this has, in large part, been facilitated by the emergence of easy and secure online money transfer services.

Payout Methods in Kosovo

Sending money to Kosovo is easier than you think because of Small World. If you choose to use Small World to send money to Kosovo there are a number of methods you can use. Before we explore why using Small World is beneficial, we’ll highlight the transfer service options we offer:

  • Cash Pickup

One of the most simple ways to transfer funds is via cash pickup. All you need to do is to send money for cash pickup to any of our cash pickup collection locations in Kosovo.

This method is accessible to everyone, especially to any friends and family in Kosovo who may not be familiar with receiving money online and prefer to collect physical cash. Simply find the cash pickup location that is closest to where the recipient lives and use Small World to send your money there for pickup. It’s easy, simple and safe.

  • Bank Deposits

A bank deposit is exactly what it sounds like. You can send money directly to a bank account in Kosovo of your choice and the transfer is done by Small World to ensure your money is secure and convenient. Your recipient can remain in the comfort of their own home and receive your money straight in their bank account.

Exchange Rates

The currency of Kosovo is the Euro. When you are transferring from a country that doesn’t use the Euro you may have to think about exchange rates. If you want to send money from overseas to Pristina, Prizren or Gjilan then it helps to know about the major exchange rates with the Euro.

For example, on average in 2021 the exchange rate between the Euro and the British Pound has been 1 GBP to 1.15 EUR. Similarly, the average exchange rate between the Euro and the US Dollar has been 1 EUR to 1.19 USD. These exchange rates illustrate how much your dollars or pounds will be worth when you transfer money to Kosovo and they are exchanged for Euros.

With Small World you don’t need to worry about exchange rates because we ensure that you always get the best possible exchange for your money when you make an international transfer.
