MoneyGram, Poste Italiane to roll out mobile money transfer service
MoneyGram International and Poste Italiane, a postal services operator in Italy, have entered an agreement to enable Poste Italiane customers to make mobile and online money transfers to various markets worldwide.
With these services, consumers will be able to send money to friends or family members without the need to visit a post office or retail location. In order to send money via the mobile phone, Poste Italiane customers must have a Poste Mobile SIM card associated with a BancoPosta account or PostePay debit card. Those who have home banking service can transfer money online at http://www.poste.it/.
MoneyGram has been active on the Italian market since 1996, offering money transfer service in over 10,000 post office locations across the country.
