No Image

Traditionally people used to drive to their villages to give families money or send the money by bus; now with virtual money transfer services, they can send money using cell phones and ATMs.

In January 2015 Barclays Bank of Botswana introduced CashSend, a virtual money transfer service.

Accessible through any mobile phone, be it the latest smartphone or ‘sedilame’ the most basic phone, this virtual banking service allows all Barclays customers to send money anywhere in Botswana to anyone including people who do not have bank accounts.

Batswana’s needs are now met amidst busy demanding lives.


Some customers are now paying their service providers through Barclays CashSend, for example, paying your domestic worker has never been easy.

All you need to do is to transfer their salary from your account to their cellphone. 
CashSend is another innovation which fits into the modern lifestyle of Batswana.

Being able to send money from virtually anywhere with a cellphone signal or internet connection, gives Batswana more value.

This translates into more time to engage on other commitments, more convenience to access money 24 hours a day, enhanced security with a PIN protected access to money and availing access to cash from any Barclays ATM.

Of course in between using Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook sometimes cellphone batteries give in… in that instance CashSend can be accessed through any Barclays ATM.
