6. How much is the service fee to send the money?
PayRu Remit charges a small service fee of $5 for every transaction you make. Also, service fees are waived occasionally if there is an ongoing promotion.

7. Do I need to register or create an account to send money?
All customers must undergo a one-time free registration process. You are required to fill in the mandatory details (KYC Form) and complete the online verification of your account by uploading the government-issued photo identification document (ID). After you’ve registered and we’ve verified your identity, you will be able to send money.
8. Why do I need to supply photo identification?
As part of the AUSTRAC’s Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) compliance requirement, we are required to verify your identity before we can provide the remit service to you. We have a legal obligation to verify that you are who you claim to be. This is done to protect you from fraudulent activity, to comply with written laws and government regulations, and to ensure the safe and accurate transfer of funds from your account to your intended recipient.
9. How long does it take to verify my identity?
We verify your identity electronically within minutes. However, in some instances
KYC verification process may take longer due to the following reasons:
- The information filled in the KYC form doesn’t exactly match the information on the government-issued ID.
- The identity document uploaded is not a government-issued photo identification document(ID).
- The uploaded image of ID is not clear, readable, or not a colour image.
- The identify document is expired or cancelled.
- The identity document is torn, damaged, or punched.
If your KYC verification is taking longer, and you need to send money urgently, please get in touch with us.
