How to send money from Uganda to Kenya, Rwanda, Ghana, and Nigeria with Eversend

The first thing to do before you send money is to ensure that your wallet is funded. Once that is done, you can now send money to any recipient on Eversend or mobile money. (for those that do not have Eversend accounts)

  1. Top up your wallet (Here is a How To Top Up guide if you do not know how)
  2. Open the app and select “Send” then “Eversend” to send to an Eversend user. You can then search for the recipient by their registered Eversend number. A user can also send you their payment tag to enable you to pay them directly to their wallet.
  3. Select “Mobile” to send directly to mobile money and “Bank” to send to a bank account (This is currently available in Nigeria and select countries)
  4. Once you have selected the recipient, add the amount you want to send. If you are doing a cross-border transfer, you will see the live exchange rate used and how much the recipient will receive.
  5. Click “Continue” and enter your PIN to make the transfer.

Sending money with Eversend is that simple. With the app, you can send money within or from Nigeria to Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda.
