Frequently asked questions 

What is the difference between MTN and Folio?

MTN: This is a unique number used by the sender as a reference for the transaction. With this number you can track your transfer (you can also do this via your dashboard). If you have a query you can contact us, using your MTN for speedy reference.

Folio (Pick-up reference): This is used by the beneficiary. The Folio works in a similar way to a PIN code: Money can only be given to the recipient when the correct Folio number is provided together with Proof of ID.

How long does a transfer take?

A transfer usually takes just one working day, but please refer to particular country pages to check delivery times. Moreover, the indicated ETAs may vary slightly according to security checks, time differences and market conditions in the destination country.

Please remember that money sent on Fridays or during the weekend (as well as on bank holidays) will not arrive until Monday (or next working day) as we can't send money when banks are closed.

The Azimo website doesn't work when I try to make a transaction

It is highly likely that if the Azimo website isn't working for you, this is due to the browser you are using (i.e Internet Explorer) not being compatible with our website.

The Azimo website isn't optimised for certain web browsers such as Internet Explorer as it is known to be less secure than Google Chrome, Safari or Mozilla Firefox, unless you have the latest version of Internet Explorer then it should function properly. We are FCA regulated, which signifies that customer security is our top priority.
