With this new service, Asiacell and TransferTo will enable Iraqis living abroad to send small value transfers to their relatives and friends in Iraq in the form of prepaid top-ups. Low in cost, high in value, international prepaid mobile top-ups are the ideal complement to money remittances.
Whether residing in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Spain, the USA, Qatar, Kuwait or any other country that is part of TransferTo network, any Iraqi will be able to recharge an Asiacell prepaid phone of their choice in Iraq. TransferTo prepaid airtime transfers are performed in real-time, and are convenient and readily available through a number of multiple channels including POS-to-Phone, Phone-to-Phone, and Web-to-Phone.
Cross border top-ups offered by Asiacell will allow transfers in several amounts. Available at www.transferto.com with payments possible in over 250.000 POS across Europe, Australia and Canada, the service will also be offered in other regions such as the USA and a number of Gulf countries including Kuwait, KSA, Qatar and the UAE amongst others. Transfers are completed through TransferTo’s distribution partners including POS retailers and partner Mobile Network Operators that offer Phone-to-Phone airtime transfer services.
Eric Barbier, TransferTo CEO, said, “I am convinced that Iraqis living abroad will find great value in this service, enabling them to make instant gifts to their loved ones in Iraq. Asiacell is a major addition to the network of partner Mobile Network Operators that have joined the TransferTo Global Airtime Remittance Hub.”
“As the operator with the largest domestic coverage in Iraq, we are yet again confirming our commitment to offer products and services that meet the needs of our Iraqi subscribers wherever they are,” said Mr. Goran Mahmood, Wholesale and Roaming Manager at Asiacell. “We hope to bring Iraqis living abroad closer to their relatives living in Iraq,” Mr. Goran added.
