Ping Express is a money transfer company that facilitates money transfers to over 10 African countries from Europe and North America. Depending on the country you are sending money to, you can transfer your funds for free or at a very low cost.
Ping Express was created out of a burning desire to make it easier for everyone to make a meaningful impact on the lives of family and friends by sending some money to help pay tuition, buy medicine, food and clothing. Our free and very low transaction fees saves our members money and puts more money in their beneficiaries’ pockets through highly efficient delivery of funds.

For Ping Express to meet its regulatory requirements, you are required to provide proof of identity card once or after the expiration date of your current identity card.

Once you are verified, you will then be able to send money to your loved ones.
How to Pay for Ping Express Money Transfer
There are two options available to you to make payment for your money transfers: debit card and ACH funds transfer from your bank account. ACH is a bank-to-bank money transfer that is processed through the Automated Clearing House Network.
How Will Your Recipient Receive Ping Express Transfer?
Ping Express allows you to send money to your recipient’s bank account and mobile money wallet. The company also supports a non monetary remittance by allowing you to send airtime to your loved ones’ mobile number. Note that when you send airtime top-up, your recipient will not be able to exchange the airtime for cash. They can use the airtime top-up for talk-time or data bundle.
How Long Does Ping Express Money Transfer Take?
Ping Express transfers to a bank account may take between 1-3 days depending on factors such as the receiving bank, the day of the week, the time the transfer was made, etc. However, money transfers to mobile wallets and airtime top-up are instant.
