World remit tracking – If you are a regular World remit sender/receiver you’d sure agree with the fact that there’s this need to know the exact transaction status and destination at a particular time.
This mostly happens when the receiver has not been able to claim the transfer in Nigeria or any other country with recourse to certain errors.
Given this, the need to track such transfer becomes grossly necessary as the case may be.
If you are a sender or a transfer beneficiary who wants to track your world remit transfer, here’s the best guide that will get you started without wasting your time.
What is World Remit Tracking?
World Remit Tracking is a practice in which either the sender/receiver of a transfer determines the exact position/status of a world remit transfer.
Note: A tracked transfer will tell the exact location and status of such transfer, this in essence will accord both parties a rest of mind towards working for the final cash pick-up.
Sometimes tracking a transfer will help with timely security awareness in a situation such transfer is being high jacked by internet fraudsters.

How to correct world remit receiver details/name, phone number, etc.
In my initial guide on how to send/receive world remit transfer I reiterated the importance of paying attention to details by the sender while processing the transfer.
These details include;
- Receiver name: The receiver name must be captured correctly as seen on their valid and verifiable ID card in Nigeria or other destination countries. When the transaction detail goes wrong/contradicts that found on the receiver’s ID in Nigeria, such person cannot cash out the transfer except such name is being corrected to conform with the ID details.
- In this case first name, middle and last name must appear at the appropriate columns without error of transposition, omission or commission of any kind.
- The receiver’s phone number must be duly captured on the transfer since they’ll be required to receive OTP at the pick-up location, where they could not receive OTP as a result of error in phone number, such transfer pick-up will be stalled thus delaying the transfer pick-up.
- These factors could lead to tracking your transfer to ascertain its safety and status especially since such transfer has been viewed by the money transfer officer in the bank here in Nigeria.
These are what usually lead to correction of receiver’s details on your transfers.
You could change your transfer details by either doing it yourself on the app or you visit the agent location.

- An email/SMS will be sent to your contact to confirm this change. Where your transfer is not in a status you can alter you will be informed accordingly.
If your transfer was sent from an agent location, kindly visit the agent with your transfer details, then communicate the actual receiver order and your transfer will be corrected.
