MTN has partnered with Google to enable subscribers of its mobile money service make international transactions.
Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana Ebenezer Asante has revealed that, subscribers of MTN mobile money can now pay for any transaction across the world through the Google platform.
He mentioned that, subscribers will also be able to receive remittances from parts of the world.
“We have that service with a couple of global partners and that service would be extended very soon to other major international remittance operators before the end of this year,” he said.
However, in an interview with Joy FM, Mr Asante said the initiative is to eliminate the limitation that comes with the usage of credit cards.
This he said is to enable customers transact businesses across the world.
“We know credit card is a limitation so how do we ensure that we can remove that barrier from the majority of our customers who are also entitled to the use of these digital services and digital platforms”
“…that is what motivated the partnership that today we have with Google that our customers can also have access to all these educational materials by paying through mobile money,” he added.
