MoneyGram International has teamed up with Industrialbank to launch account deposit service in Ukraine. This is said to be the first bank deposit service in the country.

With the new service, customers will be able to send funds directly to bank account of any recipient. Funds will be available on the same or next day based on when the transfer was made.

World Bank data shows that Ukraine received more than $14bn last year, an increase of 19% compared to transfers in 2017. MoneyGram expects the new service to allow easy access to funds and greater financial inclusion in the country.

MoneyGram is a cross-border P2P payments and money transfer company. It enables money transfers in more than 200 countries and territories, of which 65 are digitally enabled.

The company’s platform uses distribution network, financial settlement engine and cloud-based infrastructure for easy and quick transfers.

Currently, MoneyGram account deposit service is available at over 400 banks worldwide.
