An Overview of the Sikhona Money Transfer App 

The Sikhona Money Transfers app was designed as an innovative tool that assists people to send and receive money in more than 162 countries globally. We want to make sure that it is not difficult for our customers to send and receive money online. 

The Sikhona Money Transfers app requires you to first register as a user before benefiting from its features. Registering as a user means that you will have to provide us with your details such as your name, surname, age, etc. Once those details have been submitted, we ask that you supply us with a clear image of your Identity Document before clicking the “Register” button to complete the process. Once your registration has been completed, you can proceed to either send or receive funds with Sikhona Money Transfers. 

If you are using our app to send money to your family or friends back home, you will start by creating a beneficiary on the app. A beneficiary is known as the person who will receive the money. All of their details will be filled in the required spaces on the app before the beneficiary is created and money can be sent to them. 

Once all of your beneficiaries have been created on our app, you can then choose to start a new transaction for the beneficiary that you wish to send money to. In this transaction, you will state how much money you would like to send to your beneficiary. The app will present you with a quote, if you are happy with it you may proceed to complete the transaction. It is important to note here that once you have chosen to complete your transaction, you will receive a payment reference. This payment reference number is used to pay for your transaction by one of our pay-in-partners. Once you have paid you will receive a collection pin which needs to be given to the receiver of the money. When they go to collect the money that you sent them, they will be asked for this pin to get access to the funds. 

For our customers who choose to use the app to receive money online, it is also required that you register as a user on the app before you can receive the money that is due to you. After successfully registering as a user on the Sikhona Money Transfers app, the money that has been sent to you from your loved ones will appear in your bank account within twenty-four hours. 

At Sikhona Money Transfers, we understand that now and then a friend or family member may need financial assistance and you would love to be the person who helps them out. We can make this possible for you when you choose to use our money transfer app instead of going into the bank in 2021. 

A money transfer can give them the funds they may need in that moment but, how you choose to make that transfer happen will have an impact on how much fees you will be charged for your kind act of service. Take the hassle out of sending or receiving money today by simply downloading our app onto your device. The Sikhona Money Transfers App is available for download on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
