Sending money digitally: tips to improve your and your recipients experience

Sending money is quicker, easier and faster using digital payments than cash payments. 

Why is digital better than cash? You can send money to your recipients using the Mama Money app, and your recipients can receive the cash in minutes; you are protected, and your money is traceable and, if needed, reversible. 

Why is cash not a great option? Cash can be time-consuming; instead of counting out the correct amount, you can account for the amount on the Mama app. Furthermore, walking around with large sums of money is dangerous and a theft opportunity. Although cybercrime happens, it is more easily stopped in its tracks. Losing cash can almost never be reclaimed. 

Digital money uses different currencies, so you can send money from your country to your loved one's country in the currency they use. Mama Money's app lets you see the exchange rate before sending and offers the best rates.
