MasterCard MoneySend™ service for Blackberry® Smartphones is a convenient way to transfer money in the United States from person-to-person easily and securely by combining the power of a mobile device with a banking relationship.
“MasterCard MoneySend allows users to ‘Send,’ ‘Pay’ or ‘Request Funds’ for a wide range of reasons including the everyday ‘IOU,’ informal services purchased from friends and family, or payments to a personal trainer, roommate, babysitter, gardener, housekeeper or repairman,” said Andrew Ong, Group Head, P2P, MasterCard Worldwide. “We are excited to extend MasterCard MoneySend to the Blackberry Smartphone platform so that we can continue to provide consumers with innovative ways to make their lives easier.”
