Ghanaians can now receive mobile money from Europe through SimbaPay

Mobile appA London based digital money transfer provider has launched its mobile money transfer service to Ghana and Uganda.

Using the SimbaPay app or website, Ghanaians and Ugandans living in Europe can now send money to mobile phones in Ghana or Uganda instantly, a press release copied to has said.

“This is the perfect Christmas gift to Ghanaians and Ugandans living in Europe who have been asking when SimbaPay will expand coverage to their home countries,” Nyasinga Onyancha, CEO for SimbaPay was cited as saying in the release.

“By delivering money via existing mobile money wallet services, many recipients who previously could not access formal financial services can now do so,” he added.

The release explains that Ghanaians and Ugandans living in Europe (UK & European Union countries) with a bank account, debit card or credit card will be able to use the SimbaPay app from any mobile phone, tablet or computer. Transfers made using SimbaPay are credited within seconds to recipients’ mobile money wallets such as MTN Mobile Money. This eliminates the inconvenience of queues and old school paperwork.

SimbaPay also delivers money transfers via mobile money and bank account to other African countries such as Nigeria and Kenya with more destinations and partners being sought for addition in 2017, it noted.

SimbaPay was launched early last year in Nigeria with zero charges for transfers.
