Digicel Vanuatu Launches International Money Transfers with Rocket Remit
Digicel Vanuatu Limited today announced that MyCash customers are now able to receive remittance money from friends and family in Australia via money sender partner, Rocket Remit.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Digicel customers to become MyCash users and receive money in their mobile wallet removing the need to do long lines in a store or open a bank account,” Digicel Vanuatu states.
The MyCash mobile wallet is a service that allows ni-Vans to do safe and secure financial transactions. MyCash customers are able to send and receive money at no fees, make payments via MyCash QR Pay at shops, and pay Digicel or Unelco Engie bills, all from the comfort and safety of their phone anywhere they are.
Digicel Vanuatu’s Head of Business Solutions, Rupert Benson, says; “Digicel Vanuatu is a digital operator focused on enhancing the lifestyle of our customers.
“We are delighted to launch the international corridor for money transfers out of Australia for our MyCash customers and keeping them connected with their families overseas.”
Rocket Remit CEO, Harold Dimpel, says; “Rocket Remit specialises in international money transfer via mobile money making it the world’s fastest and simplest way for sending money from Australia to emerging markets overseas.
“We are excited to be working with a leading global partner such as Digicel to support financial inclusion in the Pacific including Vanuatu.
“This is especially important now when many people and countries are even more reliant on inward remittances due to the devastating impact of this pandemic on tourism income on these regions.”
Head of Financial Services for MyCash, Anup Kumar, says; “We are dedicated to growing financial inclusion for the community in Vanuatu and we believe the partnership with Rocket Remit is key to connecting ni-Vans with their loved ones overseas and enables them to receive money easily from Australia. Accessibility to digital money is a continued focus for us and we are working on bringing more connectivity to the MyCash platform to enhance our service for our customers.”
When using MyCash, customers enjoy zero fees when sending money between them, regardless if they are next to each other or in different parts of the island.
At the same time, they’ll receive international remittance within minutes when their loved one abroad visits rocketremit.com to send money.
- The MyCash App is available to download in Google Play for Android users and the App Store for iOS users.
- And if somebody wants to become a MyCash customer but doesn’t have a smartphone, they can register using 888# on the phone pad, follow the steps on their phone screen, and enjoy the same benefits smartphone users will have.
MyCash is the new mobile wallet that gives access to digital money in a safe, reliable, convenient, and fast way.
