Xpress Money launches Direct Account Credit services to India
~ Customers can now transfer money directly into any bank account in India ~
London, UK, November 2014: Xpress Money, one of the world’s most dependable money transfer brands, added a new mode of money transfer for its customers sending money to India. The brand has introduced the ‘Direct Account Credit’ service, which allows customers to send money directly to any bank account in India, making money transfer even more convenient for both the sender and receiver.
To avail of this service, a customer can walk into any Xpress Money location in UK and ask for the money to be sent to their beneficiary’s account through the ‘Direct Account Credit’ service. Once the transaction has been processed, the amount will be credited to their beneficiary’s account within 24 to 48 hours. The remitter also will receive an SMS confirmation, as soon as the money is credited to the selected account, ensuring a hassle-free transaction.
Mr. Nirav Parekh, Regional Vice President for Business Development – Europe, Xpress Money Services Ltd says, “Indian migrants, world over, regularly send money to their loved ones back home, making India the largest recipient of remittances in the world. India also has a robust and extensive banking network that facilitates the remittance receiving process. UK is home to thousands of Indian migrants, who remit money each month; it is therefore imperative that we offer our customers different options to choose from, while remitting money to their loved ones in India. The Direct Account Credit service is not only convenient but also encourages saving, as beneficiaries can withdraw only the required amount while the rest can be saved in the account. As a brand, we aim to provide hassle-free and efficient money transfer facilities to all our customers here in the UK.”
Xpress Money customers can also send money through the popular ‘Cash to Cash’ mode, where the money can be picked up almost immediately by their loved ones in India. Another pioneering money transfer product from the brand is their ‘Cash to Card’ offering. This service requires no bank account and remitters can send money directly to their beneficiary’s remit card; the beneficiary can then choose to withdraw money from an ATM in the country or use it to shop at POS terminals, as per their convenience and requirement.
Beneficiaries can choose to withdraw the remitted money from over 100,000 ATMs in India, or from their designated bank branches in the country. Introduced from UK and Greece in the initial phase, the brand has plans to roll out this service in other markets that have a large Indian diaspora.
