Send money to Ghana, your way: Apart from standard transfers in cash or to a bank account, MoneyGram, the world’s second largest provider of international money transfer services, is now offering customers the opportunity to transfer money directly to any mobile wallet in Ghana.
Sending Money directly to a mobile phone 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* – yet the fee remains low. When you send money to a mobile wallet in Ghana you currently benefit from a €0.00 fee! **
MoneyGram‘s Partnership with Zeepay makes all this possible
MoneyGram has teamed up with mobile financial services company Zeepay to make this new mobile wallet service possible. Zeepay’s best-known mobile wallet platforms include: Airtel-Tigo Mobile Money Wallets, Vodafone Mobile Money Wallets and MTN.
John Gely, MoneyGram’s Head of Africa, said: “The partnership with Zeepay makes it easier for our customers to send money to their family and friends in Ghana. This is an important step which will drive financial inclusion across the country, as customers can now receive money in cash, directly to their bank account or to their mobile wallet.”
Andrew Takyi-Appiah, Managing Director of Zeepay, said: “We believe that this milestone, which we have achieved through partnership with MoneyGram, will further accelerate the growth of digital services in Ghana and encourage their use. This is the future of the digital ecosystem in Africa and we are looking forward to seeing the launch of the service in other African countries.“
