If you have been wondering how easy it is for you to receive money from Abroad and get paid in your Nigeria Naira, This money transfer review will surely help you.

I own a blog and some of my affiliate income are paid in US Dollars which I receive in local currency via a very close friend in Finland. But, if yours is from direct transfer from friends or family abroad, you can also explore the two methods mentioned here.

Direct Transfer

Here is information you need to provider the sender if you want to receive cash via Wester Union or Money Gram: International Bank Account Number (IBAN), Sort or SWIFTCODE, Bank account details including Name, Address and the foreign currency amount expected.


This is convenient, easier and flexible - The receiver do not need to download the application, once the send has your local bank account information, he can fund it directly in your local currency.

We use WorldRemit, which from my personal experience is cheaper, safer and faster than Western Union Nigeria & Money Gram Nigeria
