What are the delivery times?
To process your transfer, we need to receive your payment first. If you pay with a bank transfer in the UK, it can take up to 1 working day for your payment to reach Azimo’s account. For other European countries, it can take up to 2 workings days. Payments done by card are a much faster option, as they only take a few minutes to reach our account.
Once we have received your payment, we will immediately process your transfer and notify you via email and push notification. The delivery time will then depend on the delivery method you choose:
- Direct to bank transfers take an average of 1 working day
- Cash pick-up transfers are available in less than one hour
- SWIFT transfers take an average of 1 working day
Please note that it may take longer to process the transfer on the weekend and public holidays.
What are the minimum and maximum amounts per transfer?
The minimum and maximum amounts vary depending on which delivery method you choose.
For bank transfers, the minimum sending amount is 10 GBP and the maximum is 5,600 GBP. For cash pick-up, the maximum amount is 800 GBP (or the equivalent in your sending currency).
If you need to send higher amounts to Bangladesh, we might request additional details from you to process the transfer. This is a standard security check, in accordance with the Know Your Customer (KYC) policy, which is used across the EU and UK to ensure the safety of all money transfers.
Please note some recipient’s banks have a limit set on how much they can receive, so double check with them before sending.
