Advantages of sending to mobile wallets

Mobile wallets are the future of digital payments. They allow people to receive, store and spend money using a mobile phone. Easy, fast, secure — what more could you want? Here are some fun facts about mobile wallets:

  • Most transfers will arrive in two minutes or less to your recipient’s mobile wallet!
  • Unlike sending to a bank account, all you need to know is your recipient’s wallet number — which is usually just their phone number
  • Once the transfer is deposited into the recipient’s account, they can choose how and when they use the funds

How to send to an Orange Money mobile wallet

To send money to an Orange Money wallet, you’ll need to have the Ria app. You can download it now via the App Store or Google Play, or by scanning the following QR code:

  • Senegal: 500,000 XOF per transfer
  • DRC: 1,000 USD per transfer
  • Botswana: 3,900 BWP per transfer

After you’ve downloaded the app and confirmed your recipient’s location, you can start sending!

On the app:

1. Tap Send or Send money now
2. Enter Send money details and choose Mobile wallet as the Delivery method
3. Review and tap Continue
4. Select or add a recipient
5. Select the Mobile eWallet details:
