    • Deposit an equivalent amount in an account which we will provide to you and within a timeframe which we will stipulate;
    • a) Upon confirmation of your payment in the account provided above, and within the time allotted, provide payment instructions through the Platform, including the recipient’s full name, address, bank account number, the amount you wish to send (the “Transaction Amount“), and any other information which we may ask you to provide.It is solely your responsibility to make sure all the transaction details are accurate before submission.

Once a transaction has been submitted for processing, we may, at our sole discretion, attempt to cancel a transfer at your request, but cannot guarantee success in such efforts if a transfer has been duly authorised and submitted.
  4. Before you confirm a transaction, we will provide you with the conversion rate that will be applied to your transaction and the fee we will charge for the transaction (the “Transaction Fee“).We will provide you with the estimated amount the recipient will receive (the “Payout Amount“) after currency conversion and deduction of the Transaction Fee.
  5. The actual amount that the Recipient receives may differ from the Payout Amount due to additional fees applied by banks or other service providers.

Once you confirm that you would like to initiate a transaction, we can either deduct the Transaction Amount and required Transaction Fee from your User Account, generate a unique transaction identification number, and provide you with funding instructions, including our bank account details or request you to provide your card details (collectively, “Payment Method”), so that you can deposit the Transaction Amount and pay us the required Transaction Fee.
  7. The funds will be paid into the recipient bank account using the transaction details you provided in the online form.
