I will love it if you can take notes so by the time we meet at the concluding part, you will have something for me.
What is Sesacash?
In November 2019, the wallet was rebuilt and migrated to the Telos network.
This migration was due to the fact that Telos is a faster and cheaper platform for transactions and also allows you to develop dApps.
Sesacash’s platform is registered in Panama and headquartered in Ghana.
It has Blaise Bayuo(former owner of Retail Power) as the CEO and co-founder.
Sesacash’s main aim is to make it easier and faster for its users to make payments across the borders with low fees.
This way, its users can use their local currencies to access other countries’ currencies as if you were in those countries.
In April 2020, Sesacash partnered with CryptoLocally, a peer-to-peer exchange, to power crypto payments.
That’s a brief overview of Sesacash. Let’s move on to see the unique features of this wallet.
Features of Sesacash
- Unique user interface
- No hidden fees

Having checked out the unique features that this wallet possess, let’s go straight to see the services it offers.
As at the time of this post(August 2020), Sesacash offers 2 services:

Find details about them below.
The wallet can be used to make and receive payments from other users.
To send payment to another user, you have to do the following:

With Sesacash, you are free to convert one fiat currency to another e.g NGN to USD.
To do this, you have to select 2 different currencies and do the following:
- Enter the amount of the currency that you want to convert and the amount you will receive after conversion will be displayed. For example, you enter 500NGN for conversion and the equivalent will be displayed in USD.
- Click on ‘Convert Currency’ and the conversion takes place.
- The amount appears in the wallet of the converted currency (USD in this case)
Note that the conversion is done using the mid-market rate at the time of the conversion.
Next, I will be discussing the supported countries and currencies.

How to Send Money from Nigeria to Ghana using Sesacash
Using Sesacash to send money from Nigeria to Ghana or vice versa follows thus:
The first thing is to sign up with them. Visit sesacash.com and click on ‘Sign Up’ at the top right-hand corner of the homepage.
**If you have already signed up, just click on ‘Sign In’.
Enter your email address and password then click on ‘Sign Up’.
A passcode is sent to your email.
Copy the passcode and paste into the space provided and click ‘Verify’.
Your account has been activated.
To start up your transaction, click on the ‘Back to sign in’ button. Sign in to your account.
To begin any transaction, you have to deposit money to your account. Click on ‘Top Up’ beside your chosen currency to deposit money.
Enter the amount you want to top up, confirm the currency, and select a preferred deposit method.
Here, I chose ‘Bank Account’ and I will click on ‘Top Up’.
Copy the account details provided, make a payment, and then click on ‘Deposit Complete’.
The deposited amount reflects in your wallet.
I will then send evidence of payment(screenshot or receipt) to the Live Chat or to [email protected] so my account can be credited.
So if I check my NGN wallet, I should be able to see the deposited amount.
Now that I have some funds in my wallet, it’s time to carry out some transactions.
It’s showing 3000NGN because I had a thousand NGN before the deposit.
Say I want to pay my friend, Abenna for a service rendered. I can do that in 2 ways:
- I can send her NGN and she withdraws in GHS from her own end.
- or, I can convert my NGN to GHS and send for her.
I will show you how it works both ways.
i. This is what I will do if I am going to send her NGN straight away.
I will click on ‘Pay’ beside my NGN wallet.
It opens up to this page. I will then
- enter the amount
- select the currency
- input Abenna’s email address (the exact one she used to sign up for Sesacash)
- and if I like, I will add the purpose of the payment, and then click ‘Complete’.
The money is sent and Abenna receives it in her NGN wallet.
She can then go ahead and convert it to GHS and withdraw to her bank account.
ii. If I will be converting to GHS first, this is what I will do
I will click on ‘Convert Currency’.
It will open to this page. Select the 2 currencies and input the amount you want to convert.
Click on ‘Convert currency’
The converted amount reflects in the appropriate wallet (GHS).
I will then click on ‘Pay’ beside GHS to send Abenna the money.
This dialog box opens. I will select the currency, input the amount, email address, and memo(optional).
I will click on ‘Complete’ when done.
Abenna receives the money in her GHS wallet. She can choose to withdraw to her account or leave in the wallet.
If she chooses to withdraw, she will do the following:
Abenna will click on ‘Withdraw’ from the menu on the left hand side. This page opens up.
She will select the currency, the withdrawal method, and then input the amount she wants to withdraw.
When done, she will click on ‘Complete’.
This is what she will see. She will provide her full name, select the provider(MTN, Tigo, or Vodafone), provide her mobile number, and click ‘Withdraw Money’.
Abenna will now follow the onscreen instructions to receive her funds shortly.
There you have the complete rundown of how to send money from Nigeria to Ghana or the other way round.
