Sending money online to Africa with MoneyGram has never been easier!

Whether you’re shopping, booking holidays, or doing banking, everyday transactions are progressively moving to the digital world. Nothing is faster or simpler: wherever you are, do what you need to do with just a few clicks. It’s clear this trend also applies to money transfer, as more and more people are choosing to send money online to provide financial support to family and friends in a reliable way – and in just a few minutes*.

MoneyGram MyWay – so many ways of sending money

MoneyGram, the world’s second-largest provider for international money transfer, is embracing this digital transformation and constantly expanding online money transfer options. Sending money to Africa is particularly rapid and easy – for example, directly to bank accounts in Ghana, Nigeria or Morocco, or to mobile wallets. Money can also be sent online from Germany direct to a mobile phone in Africa. This resolves the age-old problem of transferring money to remote areas, where the nearest MoneyGram location may be many kilometres away. The transferred sum reaches the recipient within minutes*. MoneyGram offers money transfer to mobile wallets in Africa linked to MPesa accounts in Kenya and Tanzania, and to Econet accounts in Zimbabwe – and is expanding this offering all the time. Soon it will also be possible to transfer money to mobile wallets in Ghana. In addition, MoneyGram is also working hard on a new, free MoneyGram app, which will enable users to send money, calculate fees, find locations, view their transaction history, and much more.

Send money quickly and cheaply

Sending money online with MoneyGram is not just straightforward and rapid – it’s also cheap! For example, anyone who sends money online to a bank account in Ghana can now benefit from a promotional offer of €0.00 in fees. Obviously, those who send money in person from a MoneyGram branch to Africa will also continue to benefit. For example, fees start at just €2.50 for sending money to accounts in Nigeria and €3.00 ** for accounts in Ghana.
