Apia, Samoa – Friday 29 th October 2021  MyCash is the Digicel mobile wallet that enables Samoans around the country to access digital money.

MyCash has today announced that all its customers can now easily receive international remittance directly to their MyCash wallet.

“With the recent COVID restrictions of movement and safety measures worldwide,
many Samoans with friends and family overseas have been able to receive money directly in their MyCash wallet”, states a press release from Digicel Samoa.

MyCash partners include World Remit, Digicel International, KlickEx Pacific, Remitly, Western Union and Rocket Remit.

A new addition to the partners is MoneyGram International, which also allows families living
around the world another option to remit money back home to Samoa.

Digicel Samoa CEO, Deepak Khanna, said; “Continuing to innovate and provide
digital services which are beneficial to our customers is always a key goal for us as a
Digital Operator. The addition of MoneyGram International to our remittance services allows the diaspora more choices when sending money back to loved ones in Samoa. Samoans who receive international remittances are able to use their MyCash wallet to shop for groceries and other goods with contactless QR payment, pay bills safely from the comfort of their home, send money to other members of the
family and even buy Top Up to stay connected.”

“We have seen a shift in behaviour of our customers who are now using MyCash more frequently and we look forward to providing them with more options in the coming months,” added Deepak.

Head of Digicel Mobile Financial Services, Anup Kumar, said the addition of MoneyGram International to current international remittance partners is a boost for the company.

“We are continuing to establish key partnerships to make this service even better for Samoans as loved ones overseas who want to just send money home to surprise families with a special Sunday lunch, contribute for an event or even just pitching in for the monthly shopping.”

“Sending Cash to South Pacific has never been easier thanks to our new expanded sending options. Our partnership with PRISM Group enables direct cash transfers into Digicel MyCash Mobile Wallets in Samoa from renowned international partners.”
PRISM Group incorporates a number of consumer-based businesses that aim to improve the personal online transaction capabilities of the Pacific people living at home and abroad.

Prism operates a remittance platform that facilitates a convenient and secure way of sending money to Samoa. Funds are deposited into the recipient’s MyCash wallet and can be withdrawn at any Digicel Store or MyCash Agent around Samoa.

Here in Samoa the MyCash mobile wallet app is available at no cost to download, and it’s zero-rated, so it won’t consume data from the customer’s plan when using it. For new and existing MyCash customers wanting to ensure that their MyCash account details match SIM ownership registration or needing assistance with their 4-
digit PIN code, they can reach out to the Digicel Customer Care team, who are ready to assist with any questions on Ruby Live Chat or via direct message on the Digicel Samoa Facebook page.
