CONVENIENT in money transfer, ACCESSIBLE to everyone

Hello! I’m Jeffrey and I’m the founder and CEO of TEMPO

One of our key objectives when TEMPO first began was to make money transfer truly convenient and borderless to meet the different needs and habits of diverse people, as well as to create options for millions previously left without access. We have noticed that people send money for various reasons, which range from important to extremely urgent. As a result, our service is built on foundations of reliability, comprehensive support, and personal assistance. We always make sure to go the extra mile so that your friends and family receive your transfer as soon as possible. That is true convenience and reliability.

What people say

  • I have started providing money transfer services in Greven, a place where people had no access previously. No money transfer service providers wanted to work here, but when I sent a request to TEMPO, their answer was YES.

    The core of every successful business is innovation and marketing. As a TEMPO Money Transfer agent, I have both. Here is how I can best describe my experience with Tempo:

    Great customer support team + the best exchange rates + great commission for me.
    I think TEMPO is an upcoming star in this market.

    Tanvir Ahmed, N3 Solutions, Germany

  • As an agent, TEMPO offers the best service and a great commission. I can always reach the customer support team to assist me and my clients. They're always available. I have been working with 4 other money transfer enterprises and can say that TEMPO is the one with the most successful transfers.

    At the same time TEMPO gives the best exchange rates for each country and has a massive network of pay-out agents and is available in each country they are working with. I've never had any problems with payments in any country, because the team cares about every transaction, which is very rare in this business.
