Moneybookers online payment service provides split second money transfers
London, 28th May 2008 – Moneybookers, one of Europe’s largest online payment systems, is now handling over 8,000 applications for new accounts on a daily basis as customers seek out faster and more secure ways of making payments and money transfers. Despite the launch of same-day transfers by The Fast Payment Service, many consumers remain unimpressed as the payments industry has failed to live up to the higher expectations that have been set by innovative online payment systems.
“While we welcome the progress that is being made by The Faster Payment Service, it has taken a long time coming and, by all accounts, it will be a while longer before consumers consistently benefit from same-day payments,” comments Nikolai Riesenkampff, Managing Director at Moneybookers. “The huge growth that we’re experiencing is evidence enough that it is too little too late.”
In addition to providing split second money transfers between bank accounts in the UK, Moneybookers also enables account holders to instantaneously send money almost anywhere in the world. Moneybookers, which has the largest international network of all online payment services, offers domestic payment options in 40 countries and credit card options in over 200 countries.
Furthermore, Moneybookers enables consumers to shop online and make payments using its virtual wallet, without having to give up personal information such as bank credit card details.
“Moneybookers is a highly competitive and trusted banking alternative,” continues Riesenkampff. “We now provide millions of internet users worldwide with access to online shopping and money transfer in the most reliable, secure and convenient way.”
