With Wave Senegal you can receive money from France or the USA to Senegal thanks to the SENDWAVE application available on Google Play store and App store (click here)

  • If the recipient has a wave account: he receives the money directly into his account and can withdraw it from the Wave agent of his choice. A notification notifies you by sms or directly on the application.
  • If the recipient does not have a wave account : he receives a notification sms with a code. He will therefore be able to withdraw his money at a wave point provided with his identity document and the code.

3. Deposit and withdrawal

Deposits and withdrawals are free. You deposit your money in your account without paying anything and you withdraw it for free

With all that Sa xaliss yay borom do we believe it or not?

Nothing being perfect unfortunately Wave Senegal still has some points to improve:

  • When you download the app I would like to have a little guide that explains what wave is and how to use it.
  • Account balance is highly visible which can cause privacy issues
  • The point waves are not very diverse. Sometimes it's hard to find one in your neighborhood. A real headache!
  • Some services such as canal+, TNT, excaf, buy an internet pass… are not yet present

Apart from that, Wave Senegal is certainly the money transfer service that offers the best prices on the Senegalese market.

However, with such low prices, shouldn't we wonder about the sustainability of these offers?

Wait and see!

How to become a Wave distributor?

You plan to open a multiservice and to be a wave agent but you don't know how to do it. We got you the info.

To open a wave point and be an agent as they (wave) say, you absolutely need a room and then gather the following documents to build your file:


-Commercial register

- Legalized copy of the national identity card

After having collected these documents you call 200600 to let them know that you want to open a point wave and in return they will send you a message (sms) with a link to open to fill in the form.

By filling out the form you must activate your mobile data, your geolocation and be in the premises where you want to open. It is essential to be in the room when filling out the form because geolocation allows wave to know which other points are open in your area. Because they must respect the rules of distance between the wave points which is 300 m between each point.

You will complete the form by answering the questions asked such as:

“Are you in the room where you want to open the point wave? » the geolocation data is automatically recorded, then you fill in your first and last name, the number associated with the wave account, the region where you are, if you manage other mobile money services apart from wave, the amount you have for open stitch etc.

If your profile matches them, you will be contacted by one of their sales representatives.

The question concerning the amount you have is to allow them to know if your working capital is sufficient not to suffer a breakdown depending on the area where you are.

Depending on the zone, the working capital varies between 750,000 fr and 300,000 fr. by informing the region where you are the surrounding district you will be informed of the exact amount of working capital.
