)-- RegaloCard, www.RegaloCard.com, an innovative mobile payments company that has developed a free and instant replacement to costly money transfer services, continues to grow announcing today that Farmacias Economicas a leading national pharmacy chain in El Salvador has joined the RegaloCard Mobile Payments Network.
Farmacias Economicas is a leading national pharmacy chain in El Salvador, one of the largest money transfer markets in Latin America with $3.8 Billion sent in 2008. Pharmacy services are an ideal product for RegaloCard as a common problem facing the US immigrant community is an emergency need to buy medicine for family members who are sick in their home countries where they need immediate money to purchase the necessary pharmacy supplies.
Gregory Keough, Chairman and CEO, said “Farmacias Economicas is a great addition to the RegaloCard mobile payments network. When immigrants need to send money for pharmacy products it is more often than not an emergency where the medicine is needed quickly. With an emergency situation, the problem with traditional money transfers is you have to make sure the bank is open to pick up the money, wait online to get the money, and then go buy the medicine. This is an obvious problem if the pharmacy products are needed outside banking hours. With RegaloCard the person can literally get the funds needed to purchase the products instantly and go straight to the store to get the medicine. As most pharmacies in Latin America are generally open 24x7 this means the person can instantly get the medicine or treatments they need something impossible before with traditional money transfer services.”
RegaloCards goal is to empower the US Hispanic community and allow them to avoid the hundreds of millions of dollars spent yearly on money transfer fees while controlling how the money they send back home is spent. RegaloCard is a prepaid gift card that immigrants can buy in the United States. The RegaloCard redemption PIN is then delivered instantly via mobile payment technology to the person they choose in Latin America, to make purchases at leading local retailers. RegaloCard is fast and easy to use. Consumers merely choose the gift card they wish to send to their families from the leading brands in their home country, and provide the name and cellular number of the recipient. The RegaloCard service works with all mobile handsets and all carriers worldwide and is delivered instantly 24 hours a day 365 days a year, so recipients no longer have to go the bank or only receive gifts from their family members during banking hours.
