For many, preparing for a holiday like Eid al Adha can be fulfilling but for some it can be a financially challenging time. During this holiday people generously give money to loved ones and those in the local community who may not be able to afford a meat-based meal to celebrate. With its mobile wallet connections to Easypaisa and JazzCash, WorldRemit helps to make this process fast and as seamless as possible.
Each year WorldRemit helps hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis working and living abroad send money home to their loved ones with its fast, easy and reliable online money transfer service. In Pakistan, those receiving money transfers have several options for how they can receive their funds, including payments into their bank account, instant credit to their mobile wallets, cash collection through an extensive agent network, and air time top up.
During one of the most significant holidays on the Islamic calendar with the backdrop of the ongoing impacts of COVID19, WorldRemit has been focused on ensuring convenience and safety for its customers with maximum speed. To this end, WorldRemit has connected with Easypaisa and JazzCash, the two largest mobile wallet providers in Pakistan, to enable over 40 million customers to receive international money transfers directly into their mobile accounts in real-time. Receiving money with lightning speed helps to ease the financial anxiety for those who may need it most to help them with their Eid preparations.
Once funds are received in the wallet of their choice, customers can use their balance to pay for services within the respective wallet provider’s ecosystem, or may choose to cash-out money from over 200,000 Easypaisa and JazzCash agent locations across Pakistan.
JazzCash is live for senders from all WorldRemit supported countries. Easypaisa is currently live for senders from the UK, France and Germany, with support for remaining countries to be added soon.
“We are pleased to offer a Mobile Money transfer service with Pakistan’s two largest mobile wallet providers, Easypaisa and JazzCash. The expansive network enables more of our customers to receive their money securely, in real time. Furthermore, customers receiving money transfers through their mobile wallet have the flexibility in how they wish to use their money. Providing our customers with a safe, convenient and fast means to send and receive money during an important festival like Eid al Adha is an important step towards WorldRemit’s ambitions to support Pakistan customers' shift to digital. For all those celebrating, we wish you and your loved ones a peaceful and blessed Eid al Adha.” Ruzan Ahamed - WorldRemit, Country Director for South Asia.
