Flutterwave, the prominent payments technology company in Africa, has unveiled an exciting upgrade to its mobile product, now known as Send App by Flutterwave. This enhanced platform is designed to streamline and expedite money transfers from individuals in the diaspora to their loved ones in Africa, making the process simpler, quicker, and more cost-effective.

This rebranding effort coincides with a significant surge in remittances to the continent, with the United Nations estimating a remarkable $100 billion in remittances in 2022 alone. These funds play a crucial role in supporting approximately 200 million relatives in Africa, assisting with medical expenses, education fees, and daily living costs.

Send App now extends its services to the United States and Canada, while also adding Egypt and Sénégal as recipient countries in its expanding network. Since its launch in 2021, Send by Flutterwave has wholeheartedly pursued its mission of enabling the African diaspora to bridge distances, strengthen familial bonds, and stay connected with their homeland in a fast, secure, and transparent manner.

We’ve been iterating and working hard to make Send App the ultimate money transfer solution for Africans in the diaspora. I am happy we are deploying it at this time and empowering millions of Africans home and abroad to easily, safely, and quickly support and connect with each other via money transfer on Send App.

At the heart of the app’s functionality lies the desire to transform money transfers into heartfelt gestures of love and support, bringing positive change to the lives of loved ones. Flutterwave remains committed to facilitating these connections without compromising on transparency, fees, security, or delivery time.

Notable features include real-time support, up-to-date exchange rate information, an improved activity section for transaction tracking, and a voucher code section granting users discounts on transactions.

No matter where we find ourselves as Africans, we remain tied to our home and always seek measures to support, appreciate and stay connected with our loved ones. We are excited to be joining and helping the over 160 millions Africans diasporans in the journey to easily connect with home via quick and safe money transfer on Send App.

This is a remittance solution built on our cross-border experience and global payment infrastructure reach. We are on a mission to simplify payments for endless possibilities, Send App is a critical step in that direction.
