MoneyGram, a leading global money transfer company, announced it is entering a multi-year agreement with Qtel, Qatar’s leading mobile operator, to offer international mobile money transfer services.
The collaboration between Qtel, a leading international communications company with a significant presence in the MENA region and southeast Asia, enables a global scale remittance offering available from customers’ mobile wallets.
Under the agreement, Qtel customers will be able to register for the Qtel Mobile Money service at any Qtel shop or directly from their mobile phones and send funds that can be picked up at any of MoneyGram’s 284,000 global locations in 197 countries. This relationship also gives thousands of customers in Qatar who do not have a bank account or use traditional banking services the ability to send money using a mobile device internationally in a secure, convenient and reliable method 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Transfer of the money is almost instantaneous with the Qtel Mobile Money service, and recipients can collect the cash safely and reliably from MoneyGram local agents.
