When you need to send money to Nigeria for friends or family there, it’s important to explore all of your options. You could use a traditional bank or money transfer service. Or, you could choose Ping Express, an online money transfer service.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that a traditional bank is going to be your best option. Using an online service can be superior for many reasons. An online service provider that specializes in transferring money to Nigeria will be able to provide a customer experience that is designed to meet your needs.
First, understand that banks are not primarily in the business of facilitating money transfers to Nigeria. Traditional banks provide a number of wonderful services, but it’s difficult to be great at everything you do. Banks’ primary sources of revenue are tied to their deposit business (checking and savings accounts) and the interest earned when they loan money to consumers.
When you choose an online money transfer service provider, you can be confident knowing that money transfers are what the company does (and what they do well). Transferring money internationally to Nigeria is not a side business for Ping Express. It’s all we do.
Limited Service Offerings
Because money transfers are not banks’ primary service, and because of increasing regulations and risk associated with transferring money to Nigeria, many banks only offer wire transfers. In other banks, you’ll find more complete money transfer services through a partnership with an online service provider. Still, you’re not getting the benefits that come from using a mobile provider directly.
Most banks simply have not devoted the resources to building out mobile money transfer capabilities. This can mean that the customer experience is more difficult and frustrating, and can mean that consumers end up paying higher fees for a less convenient money transfer experience.
