MoneyGram mobile wallets are now available in Ghana after the collaboration between MoneyGram and Zeepay.

The new service will enable remittances directly to 11 million mobile wallets in Ghana from more than 200 countries around the world.

MoneyGram chief revenue officer Grant Lines said: “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.

“Giving consumers the flexibility to choose between digital and cash pick-up is, and will continue to be, a competitive advantage for the company.”

Anybody can send funds through MoneyGram online or via its locations across 200 countries and territories to mobile wallets in a few minutes.

The beneficiary can access the remitted funds any time and it can be used to purchase items or services online.
