Premier Bank introduces a new international money-transfer service in Premier Wallet


MOGADISHU, Somalia - On 24 July, Mogadishu: Premier Bank has launched Wallet Send, a new international money transfer service that allows customers to send money overseas.

The new Premier Wallet feature permits the direct transfer of funds to accounts and remittance services in over 110 countries. Wallet Send reduces the complexity of sending money, the duration of traditional remittance processes, and the time it takes customers to send money abroad with a few simple steps.

This new service will enable recipients of remittances to receive funds directly from their bank accounts, mobile money, and cash in their home countries.

“Compatibility with the global trend toward modern financial systems is crucial for our society. If we have already implemented electronic domestic transactions, it is now time for our customers to use a modern system to ship items to the rest of the world,” said Premier Bank’s Head of business, Abdishakur Afrah.

“Because our society is a traveling society in which family members reside in different countries and must transfer money to one another, we have placed a premium on this service,” he continued.

Customers using our Wallet Send to remit funds to Kenya and Turkey are exempted from transfer charges, making it easy for students and families to send and receive their money free of charge.

Premier Wallet, the country’s first money transfer application, integrates online banking services, Mastercard, and simple domestic and international money transfers, through Wallet Send.
