A microscopic virus has closed down entire countries and economies. In doing so, it has shown us that our old systems are no longer fit for the 21st century.
No one is spared from the waves of COVID-19. Every single person is affected one way or the other, especially migrants.
World leaders and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has tagged the COVID-19 era as ‘The Great Reset’. A term that we warmly embrace at Zazuu.
For decades, African migrants have been paying an excessive amount on remittance fees. In this new era, we are introducing a reset by taking power away from providers and giving it to customers.
Welcome to a fairer way of sending money to Africa.
We have arrived!
Remember that feeling of doubt after sending money to a relative back home?
“Did I get the best rate?”
“Was that really the best deal?”
Well… you’re not alone. We know that feeling too.
Today, money transfer providers tend to dictate the “best deal.”
Like you, we know there must be a better way.
So we created a smart tool that allows you to find unbeatable rates and avoid greedy providers.
We named it, Zazuu.
Zazuu is the best and cheapest way to send money to Africa.
With the Zazuu app, you have the power to search hundreds of providers, compare rates and get unbeatable deals in seconds.
Let’s face it.
You can probably do all the hard work yourself. It’s just that Zazuu makes you much smarter by doing all the heavy lifting work so you can have more money to send and extra time doing what you love.
What can I do on Zazuu?
First, you can search for multiple money transfer providers. Until now, the old ways of searching for money transfer providers are either through Google or asking friends and relatives. These options are good, but the truth is, they are impartial.
Zazuu shows you local and international money transfer providers that are FCA regulated, safe and secure, and available online.
Second, you can compare multiple deals. Tell Zazuu how much you’d like to send and the algorithm will go to work for you and return an almost unbelievable result for you to compare. We show you rates, fees and the total receiving amount in real-time.
If you’re using Zazuu for the first time, the result screen is the moment when your old assumptions of the ‘best provider’ is shattered, and you realise OMG I’ve been losing money.
Finally, you can send and save money on your transfer. When you find a provider that offers a better deal, you simply click on the continue button and Zazuu will redirect you to the providers’ website to complete your transaction.
But, that’s not all. We designed Zazuu to get smarter, the more you use it. And we have lots of amazing features in our roadmap that will make your money transfer experience even better.
In closing, our hope for the future is that Zazuu will champion healthy competition and drive innovation in the Remittance sector, globally. We hope to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goal of reducing remittance fees to less than 3 per cent.
But more importantly, we hope to create a fairer future for Africans and the world.
The next time you want to send money to anywhere in Africa, why not give Zazuu a try?
