Cuentas Cardholders Will Soon be Able to Use Mobile App to Pay Bills with More Than 30 Service Providers in Mexico
MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2022 / US-based consumers will soon be able to use Cuentas to pay bills in Mexico. As a leading fintech provider of mobile banking, digital wallet and payment solutions, Cuentas already fills a critical gap for Hispanic and Latino communities with affordable digital banking and payment services.
Cuentas' Mexico bill payment service will allow cardholders in the US using the Cuentas Mobile App to directly pay bills - such as wireless, cable, electricity, and gas bills - to more than 30-service providers across Mexico. Funds will be withdrawn in U.S. dollars from the Cuentas Mobil App, and payments will be applied to the account(s) in Mexico within 48 hours, saving family or friends the extra effort of collecting cash payments at a retail location or manually depositing payments with service providers.
"We're pleased to help Cuentas connect their mobile app users to dozens of service providers in Mexico using CITI's APIs for secure, reliable cross-border payments," said Alejandro Flores Mendoza, Chief Commercial Officer of Corporación en Investigación Tecnológica e Informática, S.A.P.I. de C.V. (CITI-SAPI), a master bill pay provider in Mexico.
"Whether U.S. or foreign-born, Mexicans are the largest population of Hispanic origin living in the United States, and the demand for bill payments to Mexico continues to rise," said Jeff Johnson, Cuentas CEO. "By enabling bill pay right in the app, Cuentas will making the process fast, secure and affordable for everyone."
For only $3.00 per bill payment, Cuentas cardholders will be able to simply log into the Cuentas Mobile app, choose the service provider, enter the account details, and pay the balance due from their Cuentas account funds.
In March, Cuentas integrated Western Union's domestic and international money transfer capabilities, enabling customers to send money to 200 countries and territories via the Cuentas mobile app.
With the addition of Mexico Bill Pay, Cuentas will soon give customers some of the most affordable, secure, and convenient digital options, including remittances with Western Union and direct bill payments with CITI.
Available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, the Cuentas App is the convenient mobile banking app that gives consumers access to their money, their way. Cuentas cardholders can send money to other Cuentas cardholders with no fee, access exclusive cardholder discounts and get access to their money up to two days faster when they directly deposit their wages or government benefit checks.
