How It Works

Easy Remittances

any time,anywhere.

Send money to your loved ones hassle free.

Step #1. Register

Upon registration, an email will be sent to you for verification purposes. Once you verify your email address, you will be able to log in using the password you provided on registration.

Step #2. Prepare disbursements/local payments

You have two choices for sending funds, a Card transfer (Visa or master card only) or a Bank SWIFT transfer.

Card transfers are available in Usd only (regardless of the currency of the card; all currencies are converted to USD). Bank transfers are available in USD, GBP, Euro and ZAR.

Once your transaction goes through, you then determine the amount to allocate to local payments. In Kenya, we pay to all mobile wallets and accounts (Banks, Saccos, Micro finance etc).

Step #3. Instruct your bank to send a SWIFT Transfer.

If you have opted to use a Bank SWIFt transfer, then you will need to instruct your bank (probably through e-banking) to send a SWIFT transfer to our local foreign currency accounts.We will also give you a LIONPAY REFERENCE NUMBER which you can quote on the swift message. When we receive the transfer in our local bank accounts, the reference number will be used for cross referencing to your transfer. All this is available in the site and is self explanatory

For conversion, the ruling exchange rate on the date of receipt will apply.

Step #4. Local Payments/Disbursements

We pay to bank and other forms of accounts as well as to mobile wallets. You can have as many local payments as you desire. We will act on every one of them.

Your account will be furnished with an online statement, showing every instruction that you have given. As the instructions are acted upon, you will receive an email confirmation notification.

As you add payments, our site remembers your preferences, reducing your input time. As the payments are made, they will populate your statement accordingly.
