Qatar's Ooredoo has enhanced its Ooredoo Mobile Money service to enable customers to send money directly to bank accounts in the Philippines, one of the most popular destinations for the country's overseas remittances.
Customers can now send money to accounts at more than 20 different banks in the Philippines with MoneyGram and Ooredoo Mobile Money. Customers can also send money to more than 9,500 MoneyGram agent locations across the country.
Once registered, customers can deposit money into their Mobile Wallet Account via Ooredoo Self Service Machines or Ooredoo Shops, and then transfer money directly from their mobile.
The service is powered by Qatar National Bank.
With Ooredoo Mobile Money, customers can transfer money domestically and internationally, top-up Hala pre-paid accounts, and pay Shahry bills using their mobile phones.
The company added that sending money from mobile wallet accounts directly into bank accounts will soon be enabled for additional countries.
