How to send money to Nigeria

Here at TransferGo, we’re all about making lives easier. And with that comes the promise of simple, fast and low-cost money transfers to your destination of choice.

We understand that sending money to Nigeria hasn’t always been straightforward. Restrictions made by the Central Bank of Nigeria mean that you can no longer send money to bank accounts in NGN currency. But fret not. With TransferGo, you can now make international transfers straight to people’s cards in NGN and USD. It’s actually even easier and faster, and it’s totally safe.

Let’s walk through the steps. Here’s how to send money to Nigeria quickly and simply.

1. Choose how much you want to send, and when

Head to our Send money to Nigeria page and select the currency you want to send and receive in. Sometimes a currency can be subject to restrictions but don’t worry. Simply pay out in another one instead. We’ll give you the best available exchange rates every time.

2. Add the receiver’s card details

As we said above, all you need to send money to Nigeria is the receiver’s name and card details. We’ll take care of the rest. And soon, we’ll enable bank transfers too. Happy days!

3. Select how to pay

There are many ways to pay for your transfer. As well as from your own bank account, you can pay by card, Apple Pay and Google Pay. We’ll let you know when we’ve sent the money and you can keep track of the transfer from your account. 

Sending money to Nigeria really is that simple. And there are endless reasons to send money to a card using TransferGo when you do so.
