Digital money transfer provider, SimbaPay, has announced the launch of its money transfer service to Nigeria. Using the SimbaPay app or website, Nigerians living in the UK can send money to Nigeria at zero charge using SimbaPay. The payment can be made to any bank account or mobile phone in Nigeria instantly.

Nyasinga Onyancha, CEO for SimbaPay said, “We’re excited by the launch into Africa’s largest economy”.

“It’s awesome to be eliminating high money transfer fees for Nigerians in the UK who are sending money to their loved ones”.

Nigerians living in the UK will be able to use the SimbaPay app from any mobile phone, tablet or computer, so long they have a bank account, debit card or credit card. Transfers made using SimbaPay are credited immediately to recipients’ bank accounts or mobile money wallets.

The service is currently limited to UK. Simbapay says that this service will be rolled out gradually to Nigerians living in other EU countries.

SimbaPay provides daily locked-in exchange rates for the Nigeria Naira (NGN). The SimbaPay app can be downloaded for free from the Apple or Google Play stores.
