DALLAS, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MoneyGram (NASDAQ: MGI) has unveiled its new innovative Spanish language website, moneygram.com/us/es. The new site, which is available for customers sending money from the U.S., provides access to all of the tools found on the company's award-winning English site including the unique ability to send money as a guest user without opening an account.
"The U.S. to Latin America remittance corridor is one of the largest in the world. According to the World Bank, about $70 billion in remittances are sent from the U.S. to the region annually," says Alex Hoffmann, MoneyGram's chief product officer. "We are pleased to offer our Spanish speaking customers yet another tool to enhance their experience when they need to send money. The new site aligns with MoneyGram's mission to make money transfers easier for all of our customers."
Other features of the new site include the "Track a Transfer" tool which allows customers to check the status of online and offline transactions as well as the "Find a Location" and "Estimate Fees" tool. The MoneyGram mobile app (available in the Apple iOS and Google Play stores) has also been updated with bilingual functionality, mirroring the website, and allows customers to complete transactions quickly and seamlessly on phones or tablets.
MoneyGram's upgraded online experience first launched in the U.S. in 2015, and was expanded to the UK and Germany earlier this year. It has been voted "Best Comeback Story" in the payments industry by the PYMTS Innovation Awards.
