Ooredoo’s popular Mobile Money App ‘Ooredoo Money’ has undergone a massive upgrade this week, enabling customers to now create and change their secure mPin, use the Ooredoo Exchange to transfer money to any bank account, and estimate exchange rates and amount sent via the application.

With the Ooredoo Money App, which was launched late last year, customers can check their finance, transfer money instantly around the world through MoneyGram, and complete daily tasks such as purchasing Hala top-ups (with 10% extra credit), data recharges (with 25% extra bonus), Ooredoo Passport services and pay Ooredoo bills. Thanks to the upgrades, Ooredoo Mobile Money customers can now also use the Ooredoo Exchange via the App, enabling users to send money directly to bank accounts in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Nepal.

To ensure that customers get the best value for money, Ooredoo has also introduced the ‘Exchange Rate Estimate’ and “Send Amount Estimate” feature on the app, allowing users to see the fee and exchange rates, as well as the amount needed to be sent against a particular expected amount in local currency, before transferring money internationally. For users in Qatar, pre-registered QNB Mobile Payment customers can now send transactions through the app easier and faster than ever before, enabling fund transfers into any mobile money wallet directly from their QNB Bank account. To access this feature the Ooredoo Money App needs to be accessed from the mobile number registered for the QNB Mobile Payment service.

Ooredoo has also enhanced the app to enable first time users to efficiently generate the mPIN and change it to their personal and easy to remember PIN, ensuring security from the very first use. The upgrade to Ooredoo Mobile Money is the latest enhancement to the service, which is becoming the most popular cashless payment method in Qatar. Customers can register for Mobile Money for free with a valid Qatar ID at any Ooredoo Shop, by dialling *140#, or by simply downloading the free “Ooredoo Money” App on their mobile and following the simple on-screen registration instructions.

Once registered, customers can cash-in money for free in their mobile wallet using any of over 200 Ooredoo Self-Service Machines available throughout Qatar. Deposits can also be made through Ooredoo Shops or direct transfer from any QNB Bank account through QNB Mobile Payment service. 

For more information, customers can ask about Mobile Money in an Ooredoo Shop or visit the Mobile Money section on the Ooredoo website at
