Orange introduces mobile money transfers between Senegal, Mali and Cote d’Ivoire

12 Jul 2013

France-based mobile giant Orange Group has launched a mobile-to-mobile money transfer service between users, for its customers in the African nations of Senegal, Mali and Cote d’Ivoire. The parent says the new Orange Money International Transfer service will be competitively priced, quick and easy to use, and will be expanded to other markets on the continent in future. Orange is currently active in 13 countries across Africa and the Middle East and has more than seven million subscribers to its Orange Money service. TelecomTiger notes that every year around EUR200 million (USD261.4 million) is moved between the three countries via money transfers and Orange’s first-of-a-kind solution will meet the needs of a growing number of its users. Orange Money International Transfer allows for the secure transfer of money between mobile phones, reducing the need for travellers to carry cash when abroad, or send/receive money via a third party.
