With Azimo, you can send money to over 190 countries around the world in 80 different currencies. The money can be received in a variety of ways, such as the traditional cash pickup in over 270,000 locations or credit to a bank account of over 20,000 banks, to sending to a mobile wallet or having cash delivered at your recipient’s home.
