Since December 15, the QUICK MAIL™ money order system launched the new service: express transfers Russian Rubles Abroad.
A 2% commission on the amount (but not more than RUB 150) is collected for the transfer. The maximum amount per transfer is RUB 500,000. A Russian resident is able to send the equivalent of not more than RUB 5,000 abroad during one day.
You can benefit from the new service in several Raiffeisenbank’s Moscow offices and in a number of participant banks of the system of the CIS nations: STANDARD Bank (Azerbaijan), Ardshininvestbank, Armekonombank, BTA Bank (Armenia), Kyrgyzkreditbank, Issyk-Kul’ IB OJSC (Kyrgyzstan), VICTORIABANK (Moldova).
«Most of our customers are migrant workers from the CIS nations who regularly send money to their relatives and friends. The new offer largely targets this category of customers», notes Aleksei Abrameitsev, Head of the Division of Cash Transfers and Payment Services. «Under conditions of growing competition on the money order market, it is critical to us not only to offer simple and comprehensible services but also to extend our offer, taking into account the growing needs of our customers».
