Global online cash payment provider, Ukash, has forged a new partnership with Canadian-based nTrust, a leader in online money transfer. This marks Ukash’s continued expansion in Canada enabling nTrust users to deposit money using Ukash vouchers – a convenient way to move cash without a bank or credit card.
To launch the new partnership, Ukash and nTrust are running a consumer competition, promoted through social media and other digital marketing activity, giving away 1000 Canadian dollars to one lucky winner who will be announced on July 1st – Canada Day.
The new deposit method provides greater online money transfer and payment options to nTrust customers from over 35 countries around the world. As a result, Great Britain Pound (GBP) and European Currency (EUR) have been added to nTrust’s multi-currency offerings, which currently include: Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, Australian Dollar, and Philippine Peso.
“The partnership with Ukash was, in some ways, an obvious one,” said Robert MacGregor, founder and CEO of nTrust. “Ukash has been an innovator since its inception. With this integration, nTrust’s users can now use Ukash to deposit funds without having to provide credit or bank card information, making the nTrust platform even more accessible to those who do not wish to share banking details, or those of our customers that have no access to traditional banking.”
