mHITs rolls out mobile remittance service to Ghana

Instant transfer

Australian developer and operator of mobile payment services, mHITs, is rolling out an international mobile wallet micro-remittance service to Ghana through the HomeSend remittance hub (view press release). The new service will allow mHITs users in Australia to send and receive payments instantly to counterpart mobile wallet accounts in Ghana via SMS. Funds can be accessed directly so recipients do not need a bank account or to travel to a transfer agent to collect. In certain regions, recipients can withdraw funds directly from the wallet in cash.

Harold Dimpel, CEO of mHITs says, “For the first time, people living in Australia will be able to send money instantly by mobile phone to their relatives and friends living in Ghana by having funds credited immediately to their MTN Mobile Money account. In some developing markets, families and communities rely on money sent by relatives abroad to pay for essentials such as food, clothing and medicines so we are very pleased to be able to assist with this in some way.”
