AstroPay has introduced a new in-app tool called "Transfer" that enables users to send money to contacts who do not have an AstroPay account, as long as they are located in the same nation.
Available in over 150 countries, this new feature simplifies and commission-free money transfers between digital wallets. A user may pick a contact from the AstroPay App, and if the receiver does not already have an account, they will receive a text message with a code to create an account connected to their phone number, allowing them to withdraw the money.
If they already have an account, they will receive a link via WhatsApp or another method and will need to click on it within 24 hours to accept the money.
Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay, said: “We are thrilled to have launched this new feature as the need for transferring money digitally continues to soar. It is a testament of our continued commitment to innovate and introduce new features to enhance our offering.
“The response we have received thus far has been very encouraging and we look forward to seeing how Transfer continues to support our users.”
