Mobile Money – Fast money transfer to a mobile phone
Many people think sending money via Mobile Money is difficult and complicated. But on the contrary, you can send money to Ghana in a short time and with just a few resources. To receive money, your recipient needs a mobile phone and a mobile wallet. All you need is to send them money is a sendvalu account. The advantage is not only the simplicity of the process, but also the speed of the transfer. On average, it only takes a few hours for the money to reach your recipient. Since the money is sent directly to their mobile phone without any detours, your recipient doesn’t have to worry about the opening hours of withdrawal offices or bank branches anymore.
How do I send money to a mobile wallet in Ghana?
The whole transfer process consists of three easy steps: Enter transfer details, enter recipient details and enter your own payment details.
After you have created an account or logged in, click the “SEND MONEY” button at the top right of the dashboard to start a transaction.
In the first step, you enter all the details of your transfer. If you want to send money to a mobile wallet, it is important to select “Mobile Money” on this page.

Unlike cash pick-up, they do not have to deposit the money first, but can use it directly from their bank account.
The steps to send money to a bank account in Ghana hardly differ from those of a Mobile Money transfer. Register at sendvalu.com or log back in with your existing account and click on the “SEND MONEY” button at the top right. In the next screen, simply select Bank transfer as the transfer method and fill in all the needed information. In the next step, enter your recipient’s details and then your own bank details, if they are not already stored. And you’re done!
Cash Pickup – cash payout in Ghana
Another common method of transferring money is cash pickup from one of more than 635 payout offices. This method is great for sending cash quickly to your recipient in Ghana who doesn’t have a bank account or mobile wallet. Although most of the population has a bank account or mobile wallet, some prefer to receive cash.
To send cash, all you need to do is select “Cash Payout” in the first step and follow the same instructions as when transferring via a bank account or mobile money.
