Several ground-breaking innovations have been birthed during this pandemic as companies and industries are at their wits’ end, figuring out how to lessen the financial burden on their customers.
One of the most pioneering initiatives during the period was introduced by Vodafone Cash as part of its comprehensive support for Ghanaians.
The Mobile Financial Service operator completely waived off charges on any amount of money transferred from Vodafone Cash to all networks in addition to its already existing no charges to other Vodafone Cash customers.
In essence, customers do not incur any charges when they send money from their Vodafone Cash account to friends and loved ones on Vodafone and other networks.
This initiative, which remains the most innovative product from the industry, has brought great relief to millions of Ghanaians as well as Small and Medium Enterprises across the country, as Vodafone continues to absorb charges.
Vodafone Cash customers have expressed their appreciation and commended the operator across various social media platforms for the bold move. Some of the positive comments picked from Twitter include the following.
Sharing his delight using the Vodafone Cash service, Jude Focus said, “Vodafone Cash is too good, there have been no charges on all transactions since last year”.
According to Samuel Amenyo, “I started laughing when I realized other networks charge as much as 10 cedis for sending money, meanwhile, I send money on Vodafone Cash without any charges”.
Gerson Ato Essel wrote, “Just transferred all my money from that network onto my Vodafone cash wallet because I know my money is safe from fraudsters”.
Cobby Ing Jr. also tweeted, “Thanks Vodafone cash, this has made my transactions more convenient than ever without thinking of the charges, I’m grateful”
Commenting, Martison Obeng-Agyei, Head of Vodafone Mobile Financial Services said, “It is very heart-warming to hear these testimonies from our cherished customers. We are excited that our decision to completely waive off charges on money transfers to other networks is making such a great impact on the lives of our customers and businesses.
“Besides the financial relief, this bold step has also broadly expanded digital financial inclusion which remains the focus. I am extremely excited that we have brought such relief to customers saving them millions of cedis in what would have been charges.”
Prior to this initiative, Vodafone was the first operator that allowed customers to enjoy free charges on interoperability transactions below ¢100 before the Bank of Ghana’s directive for operators to waive the charges.
Customers who have not yet subscribed to the service can simply dial *558# to register. Non-Vodafone customers can also visit any Vodafone Retail Shop or Agent to port their number or purchase a SIM card, register with a valid ID card and then activate their cash wallet.
