MoneyGram Launches Money Transfer Service to all Mobile Wallets in Ghana

Company expands digital offerings to offer consumers more choice in Africa’s fifth largest receive market 

MoneyGram and Zeepay, a mobile financial services company, announced today a new partnership that enables customers around the world to send money directly to more than 11 million mobile wallets in Ghana. With this new service, MoneyGram becomes the only leading money transfer provider in the country to offer consumers three different options to pick up funds from over 200 countries around the world.

“This is an important milestone for MoneyGram in Ghana as we’re now offering real-time, seamless service to our customers and giving them more choices about how to receive their funds – at a physical location, directly to a bank account or a mobile wallet,” said Grant Lines, MoneyGram’s chief revenue officer. “Giving consumers the flexibility to choose between digital and cash pick-up is, and will continue to be, a competitive advantage for the company.”

Funds can be sent via MoneyGram online or at any one of MoneyGram’s thousands of locations in 200 countries and territories around the world into mobile wallets in minutes. Money can be accessed 24/7 and used instantly for purchasing goods and services online. The receiver may also pick up their remittance in cash at over 2,000 banking partners’ locations across the country or have it debited into a bank account.

“Together with MoneyGram, we are building the future digital payments ecosystem in Ghana. I look forward to seeing the launch of similar services in other African countries,” said Andrew Taki Appiah, managing director at Zeepay.

According to the World Bank, in 2017, USD 2.2 billion flowed into Ghana, mainly from the United States (USD 585 million), Nigeria (USD 395 million), the United Kingdom (USD 286 million), Italy (USD 145 million) and Germany (USD 115 million).

    Withings has designed it to pair over Bluetooth with a smart phone, and using a related app you can track everything from exercise targets to sleep patterns (yes, you wear it to bed so that an accelerometer can monitor your nocturnal, er, behavior). When used in conjunction with the app, the Pulse offers a lot of features and you don’t have to be an Iron Man competitor to get the most out of it. It’s inconspicuous, which I like (no one wants to look like a Borg or be quizzed every time someone notices you’re wearing an odd gadget), and the rechargeable battery lasts for a couple of weeks. Its best feature is the pulse rate monitor, which other devices like the Fitbit Flex and more expensive Nike FuelBand lack.

I also love the lily-flowered types, such as ‘Merlot’ and ‘Ballerina’, with their elegant shape and profile; and the Viridiflora tulips, which are almost – with the green flash of colour to their petals – a foliage as well as a flower. They also last longest in the garden and in a vase. But I’ve known all of these for ages. This year I am on a three-pronged quest for new tulips, building on previous experiments.
