eZ Cash, a mobile money service operated by Sri Lankan telecom operator Dialog Axiata, has teamed up with TransferTo, a cross-border B2B mobile payments network, to expand international money transfer services to the island nation.

Powered by TransferTo’s Network, eZ Cash will offer mobile money services to Sri Lankans working across the globe to transfer money home to their family members.

eZ Cash, which has more than 2.6 million registered customers and a network of over 20,000 merchants, is available to all Dialog, Etisalat and Hutch clients.

TransferTo CEO Eric Barbier said: “Sending money home should be as simple as sending an SMS to the people who count. No one should worry about when they might receive it or how complicated it might be to get the actual funds. Network partners of TransferTo can now offer money transfers direct to eZ Cash to better serve their customers.”

Fariq Cader, vice president at Dialog Digital Services said: “We’re pleased to expand eZ Cash availability globally through TransferTo and give Sri Lankans working away from home, the peace of mind to send money to their families. They will know that money sent home will be received safely at any time or day of the week and can be used instantly to make purchases, pay bills or withdrawn as cash across our network of 16,000 agents.”
