Customers will only have a “low flat transaction fee” to expect, that is shared upfront prior to customers settling their transfers, according to StarHub.
“Using just a single app, our mobile prepaid customers are able to support and connect with their loved ones in more ways than one.” said Donovan Kik, Vice President of Mobile Marketing at StarHub.
David Hulme, Co-founder and Director of Pay2Home noted that “High on migrant workers’ list of priorities are connectivity, communication with their families back home, and the ability to help support them financially by sending money to cover housing education, medical and a multitude of other family needs.”
Hulme sees this partnership with StarHub as a “synergistic collaboration that revolves around convenience, financial inclusion and building firmly on Singapore Government initiatives like Go Digital.”
