Last year, Orange Mobile began a partnership with Ecobank in Mali and Cameroon. The partnership has allowed customers of both companies to transfer funds to their Orange Mobile e-wallet from their Ecobank bank account. The deal between the two companies has now been extended to allow customers to take further advantage.
Subscribers can use their mobile device to transfer money between bank accounts any time. The technology eliminates the need to visit an ATM or have physical cash. Customers can also use the mobile service to view their account and get SMS mini statements.
A spokesperson for Orange Mobile said that since the service launched back in January 2015, almost 110 million Euros has been transferred between Ecobank and Orange Money accounts. He added that the easy to use system helps customers carry out bank operations no matter where they are in the country or what time of day it is.
Orange Money was launched back in 2008 in the Côte d’Ivoire. The service is currently available in 14 countries across the Middle East and Africa.
Orange does not exist as a network in the UK anymore. Instead, it joined forces with T Mobile to create EE, the UK’s largest network.
