About us

“Fonmoney is set to revolutionise the remittance market!” 

Our story
We founded Transpaygo with the aim to improve the way to send money abroad. We want to serve everyone with easy, affordable transfers.

The Fonmoney portal to send international top-ups was launched in 2013. Encouraged by the warm welcome for our product, we decided to venture even further. In 2015 we obtained a payment institution licence for money services from the UK FCA.

As of 2016 we offer three different services to send money home: bank account transfer, mobile top-up and cash-out. Our team is a broad mix of former bankers, mobile developers and scientists representing more than ten nationalities. We firmly believe that working with local banks and partners will make ours the best service available on the market.
