We truly appreciate our customers here at Azimo, so each month we share your stories. This month we got the chance to talk to Ever to hear about what sending money home means to him.

We chatted about how he first heard of us and got to know a little bit more about his story of transferring back home. Having just discovered Azimo about a year ago, Ever has been sending money back home to help his mom.

Tell us a bit about yourself Ever! Where do you send money to?

I send from Barcelona to the Dominican Republic.

How did you discover Azimo, and why did you choose to use us?

I discovered this app about a year ago because of an ad I saw. At that moment, I did not need to send money to any foreign country, but I kept it in mind to try someday. Eventually there came the need for me to send money abroad, so I considered using Azimo.

The exchange rates and fees were (and are) much better than the traditional local services, which at first felt weird and not believable. We were not sure this was going to work, but decided to give it a try anyway. It did! The available option to that country was cash pick-up at a bank, so my mom and I chose that. The pick-up location was not far from her house, so it was not a problem, and there were many locations available. I sent her the money and she went there with the code.

What do you like best about the service?

How easy the process is, because the app is very intuitive and easy to use.

How fast it is, because usually the money is available immediately after I send it, which is extremely impressive.

How low the cost and rates are, in comparison with traditional alternatives. All in all, the reliability Azimo provides is awesome.

Would you recommend us?

Not only would I, but I have done so already, to many people. Sadly, not many people that I know are interested in sending money abroad, so I really have never got a “referral” do anything. But I would always recommend this app to anyone that asks me. There’s no reason why I wouldn’t.

How much money do you think you have saved using Azimo?

Maybe something between 50 and 100 Euros, counting every single transaction I’ve made.

What do you think of our app?

It’s great. It’s simple, beautiful and intuitive.

A big thank you to Ever for taking the time to chat with us!
