PayPal:将通过Xoom拓展亚洲区域数字汇款业务

近日,PayPal宣布将在巴基斯坦、菲律宾和新加坡推出新的转账业务,以拓展其国际汇款网络。

其中,PayPal与巴基斯坦国家银行建立了进一步的合作关系,以促进安全转账和“美国-巴基斯坦”转账当日到款。PayPal在一份声明中写道:“周一到周五下午四点半(伊斯兰堡时间)之间汇至巴基斯坦国家银行账户的款项可当日到账,该时间范围之外的转账则会在下一个工作日到账。”

通过汇款网络Xoom,Paypal已与巴基斯坦境内的25家银行成为了合作伙伴,包括巴基斯坦规模最大的几家银行。PayPal与这些银行的合作为在美巴基斯坦移民提供了汇款便利。在美国境内,巴基斯坦移民是数量增长最快的移民群体之一。

在东南亚地区,PayPal似乎采取了不同的策略拓展汇款业务:支持Xoom平台发展,为想要帮助朋友或家人的用户提供直接支付地方账单的服务。Paypal表示新加坡的移动充值业务是对原有“银行间汇款服务”的延伸,每笔交易中用户仅需支付0.99美元即可获得预付费手机话费赠送。PayPal推出的这项服务得到了新加坡三大电信运营商——M1、SingTel和StarHub——的支持。

同样,PayPal在菲律宾引进Bill Pay,支持美国境内180余万美籍菲裔支付朋友或亲人的手机账单。目前,这项服务是由PayPal与在线预付移动支付服务商PayMaya Pholippines合作推出,用户无需信用卡即可快速而又安全地支付。

全球汇款行业快速发展,今年的转账金额已达约5860亿美元。值此之际,Paypal为巩固其在国际汇款领域的地位也做出了巨大努力。

PayPal is expanding its international remittance network with new money transfer offerings in Pakistan, the Philippines and Singapore, the company announced.

In Pakistan, the company has further extended its partnership with the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) to facilitate secure and same-day remittance from the U.S. “Deposits to NBP accounts will arrive the same day when sent Monday through Friday by 4:30 p.m. PKT. Transactions sent outside of that timeframe will arrive the next business day,” the company said in a statement.

PayPal, through its remittance network, Xoom, currently works with 25 banks in Pakistan, including some of the nation’s largest banks, to power remittance for Pakistani emigrants — one of the fastest-growing immigrant populations in the U.S.

In Southeast Asia, the company seems to have taken a different approach by bolstering Xoom’s platform to support direct, local bill payments for customers wishing to support their friends and family. In Singapore, the company said, its Mobile Recharge offering — an extension of its original bank-to-bank transfer service — allows users to gift calling credit for prepaid mobile phones for just $0.99 per transaction. The service is being powered in partnership with three of the largest telecom providers in Singapore — M1, SingTel and StarHub.

Similarly, in the Philippines, the company has introduced Bill Pay to power over 1.8 million U.S.-based Filipinos with an ability to pay mobile phone bills of their friends and relatives. The service is currently being offered through a partnership with PayMaya Philippines, an online prepaid mobile payments service, which removes the need for a credit card to avail fast and secure payment benefits.

PayPal’s efforts to strengthen its position in the global remittance business comes as the industry sees rapid growth in global money transfer volume, which is now expected to contribute around $586 billion this year.
