MoneyGram Advances Mobile Wallet Capabilities with Five-Year Extension to Ooredoo Qatar Partnership

MoneyGram International, Inc., a global leader in cross-border P2P payments and money transfers, today announced a five-year extension to its partnership with Ooredoo Qatar, the leading telecommunications operator in Qatar. The renewal enables MoneyGram customers to continue to send money in near real-time to family and friends through Ooredoo Money Wallet, a virtual account that allows customers to easily deposit, access or withdraw money.

Ooredoo was recently awarded "MoneyGram Global Agent of the Year" due to the explosive triple digit year-over-year transaction growth it experienced in 2020 as well as its collaborative strategy to further improve customer experience. As consumer demand for account deposit services and digital options continues to increase, MoneyGram and Ooredoo Qatar are giving consumers the opportunity to send and receive money from the comfort of their own homes, which has been especially important in the last year.
