For customers it is often hard to tell whether they can trust an online service or not. We would like to take away all of your fears concerning Fonmoney by telling you everything about our company emergence, our partners and how our service works.
Fonmoney was founded in 2012 and started as a worldwide mobile phone charging service. Since 2014 you can recharge Cuban Cubacel mobile phones with Fonmoney and since 2016 it is possible to recharge Nauta accounts on our webpage. We quickly noticed that the Cuban families needed more than that, so we started to look for a way to make money transfer to Cuba possible.
Who are Fonmoney’s partners?
Fonmoney is licenced by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA is a UK financial regulator that gives authorization to financial services like Fonmoney.
Fincimex is the Cuban Tax authority from which the free AIS cards are provided. In order to be able to offer the fastest possible money transfer, we not only cooperate with FINCIMEX, but also with the Cuban banks Metropolitan Bank, International Financial Bank and Popular Savings Bank.
You can read our excellent customer reviews on the independent rating platform Turstpilot and on our Facebook page. Many of our customers have known and used us for many years to charge Cubacel mobile phones. We now want new customers to see us as the safe and reliable service we have been for years.
To transfer money to Cuba you must first create a user account. In special cases, you must also identify through our partner company HooYu. HooYu is specialized in verifying users, so we can exclude the misuse of our service and at the same time guarantee the security of your transaction!
Verification must take place in the following cases:
- ● (Recipient) Country-specific regulations
- ● when exceeding a certain amount
- ● at high transfer frequency
How does it actually work?
After creating a free user account you can choose between our money transfer options: You can either recharge an AIS debit card (Creat a new AIS card for free) or send money to be picked up in cash. After you have filled in the receiver data and completed the payment successfully our Team at Fonmoney will edit your transaction as fast as possible.
We always try to provide you with the most up-to-date exchange rate, but since we depend on our cooperation with the Cuban banks, our exchange rate depends on their price. Depending on the method you choose, your money will arrive between 3 hours and 7 days in Havana, and between 3 hours and 15 days in any other province in Cuba. We will contact you and the receiver via mail and/or via text message as soon as your transaction is completed and your money arrived in Cuba. Our customer service is available at any time. Do not hesitate to contact Fonmoney for any question: email@example.com

Recharging an existing AIS card is the fastest way to send money to Cuba! Your money will be recharged on the AIS card within 3 to 12 hours.
If you have to create a new AIS card for your recipient you can do so within your first transaction at Fonmoney. The new AIS card is free of charges, but it may take a bit longer because FINCIMEX has to check the validity of the data first. It may take up to 7 days if the recipient lives in Havana and to 15 to 20 days if the recipient lives in another province of Cuba. As soon as the new card is created you and your recipient will be contacted via e-mail and the recharged AIS card can be picked up at a FINCIMEX office of your choice.

The typical image of Cubans gathered around Wi-Fi points in Cuban cities may change in 2018! ETECSA plans to give every Cuban with a Nauta account the opportunity of Internet access in their homes.
This news, announced by the president of Etecsa Mayra Arevich, represents an enormous advance in the private communications of the island, and allows Cubans to have internet at home, and anywhere else on the island, without needing to be in a public Wi-Fi spot.
Until now only a few professionals such as doctors or journalists could have internet at home. However, with this measure, any Cuban with a Nauta account will have Internet access from his own home. At an unbeatable price!
As we already informed you a few months ago, recharging a Nauta account is now cheaper with Fonmoney. An hour of internet costs 1 CUC. If you recharge a Nauta account with 15 CUC the holder will be able to use Internet for 15 hours in Cuba!
➜ And remember, you can also send money to Cuba from Europe with Fonmoney!
We wish all Cubans a good start into the new year 2018!
