Continental Money partners with TransferTo to expand remittance services in Africa

International online money transfer service Continental Money is partnering with global remittance hub TransferTo to offer international mobile top-up to its customers.

By adding international airtime top-up to the overall product offering, Continental Money customers will now have more options than ever for sending funds home to friends and family in Kenya.

Continental Money is a leader in cross border payment services, known in the industry for its 24/7 customer service and best exchange rate guarantee. The local and international networks of Continental Money enable remittances to be both fast and secure. As a result of the partnership with TransferTo, Continental customers will now have the ability to send remittance in the form of airtime top-ups to Kenya. Airtime and value remittance provide consumers with more control over how remittances are spent and ensures that funds are used for the purpose originally intended by the sender.

Njuguna Kirubi, CEO of Continental Money, said “Integrating TransferTo's remittance hub will provide Continental customers with a secure, simple and convenient way to top-up mobile devices from anywhere in the world.”

Eric Barbier, CEO of TransferTo, added “With financial inclusion and mobile money on the rise in Africa, we are confident that this partnership and expansion of services are a step in the right direction that can only benefit Continental customers.”
