World First are exceptionally proud to have been awarded a 2017 Feefo Gold Trusted Service award.

An online platform which allows businesses to independently collect genuine reviews from customers, Feefo is used around the globe by over 3,000 businesses, ranging in size from multinational organisations to small businesses.

The award is only given to businesses with at least 50 reviews between January 1st 2016 and December 31st 2016, who have achieved a Feefo service rating of between 4.5 and 5.0.

Feefo ensures that all feedback is authentic, by matching a review and rating to a legitimate transaction.

At the time of writing, World First Australia has a rating of 4.7 out of 5.

The award comes off the back of winning a 5-star rating for ‘Outstanding Value in International Money Transfers’ from CANSTAR in November 2016.

“Trust and transparency are paramount in our line of business and we are very proud to be recognised by Feefo and our customers in this manner.“ said World First Australia Managing Director, Andrew Porter.

“It’s fantastic to see that our commitment to working with customers in transfering money internationally both quickly, securely and at the best exchange rate, is reflecting positively in the experiences they are having. The Feefo Gold Trusted Service Award and CANSTAR 5-star service rating are testament to the fact that our customers really  are our number one priority,” continued Mr Porter.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to assist each and every one of our customers with their money transfers and to be a contributing factor in their transfer story – no matter whether is to purchase a dream property overseas, expanding an ecommerce business or paying a supplier abroad.”

Here are just a few of the reviews some our customers have left World First recently through Feefo:

‘ Great first time transaction! ‘

“I haven’t used an FX online business before, did some research & signed up late on a Sunday night. First thing Monday morning I had a call with very friendly agent who answered my questions & made it very easy. Account activated almost immediately – very seamless. I made a transaction later in the week & was quite straight forward online, had great communication & follow up, with a quick deposit in my UK account. Great stuff! Will definitely be using your services again!”

‘ Easiest way to transfer foreign currency, and painless! ‘

“Fast and efficient service with good feedback on the transaction as it occurs.”
-Martin , February 2017

‘ I’ll rate WorldFirst service as excellent’

“Got much better exchange rate than banks and other agencies saving couple of hundred dollars.”
– Anonymous, December 2016

‘ Excellent service ‘

“This was my first experience and I was very impressed. Great to be able to speak with a representative when necessary. The exchange rate was much better than the bank and the transfer went without a hitch. The recipient of the funds was also very happy with the transaction. Helpful to have your own personal dealer.”

‘ Excellent people to work with ‘

“I have worked with World First now for around two years and during this time have made several International transfers. My dealings with World First, firstly with Tristan Dakin and upon Tristan’s transfer with Pharida Khiev have been a pleasant experience, I had a problem with my bank in Cambodia and dealt with Leanne Jardine and she gave me the same experienced, friendly and professional advise as did Tristan and Pharida. I will be dealing with World First for a long time into the future as they have shown a side of financial transfers I have never experienced with a Bank.”
