Social Media and Remittances

An industry first, the new functionality connects senders and receivers through their Facebook friend list, enabling them to exchange details immediately and links them to the Azimo app to make a transfer, all within a few simple clicks. With social networks connecting billions of people across the globe, the integration harnesses the widespread use and ease of Facebook, enabling an efficient and simplified service.The solution creates a seamless two-way interaction, where the recipient is in control of entering their bank details or choosing one of over 270,000 collection points around the world, directly within the app. This functionality addresses two major pain points for users; the risk of mistyped payment details and delays in receiving information, therefore slowing down the entire transferal service. Azimo’s deep integration with Facebook, its mobile-first approach and its product innovation are designed to meet the needs of today’s ‘always on’ customer wherever they are in the world. Read more about Azimo here.
