Swiss Bankers launched the new money transfer service called “Send” leveraging the Mastercard Send platform. Due to collaboration with Mastercard, the Swiss prepaid card issuer will be able to make secure international payment transfers to 18 countries via an app. This way, people will receive their money to bank accounts, digital wallets, eligible Mastercard cards, and soon, cash pick-up points.
